Being Too Harsh to Yourself May Cause OCD and Anxiety
A new study by Hiroshima University, Japan, suggests that people who blame themselves when things go wrong are at higher risk of developing obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) or generalized anxiety disorder (GAD).
OCD is an anxiety disorder in which people have unwanted and repeated thoughts, feelings, ideas, sensations (obsessions), or behaviors that make them feel driven to do something (compulsions).
GAD is a long-term condition that causes a person to feel anxious about a range of problems, not just one specific issue.
The scientists point out that the study was small but they believe the same results would likely occur with a larger number of participants.
