Do not be so hard on yourself...it could lead to OCD and anxiety
People who are too hard on themselves may be more likely to develop OCD or anxiety, a study suggests.
Those who blame themselves when things go wrong were more likely to have obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) or generalised anxiety disorder (GAD).
Researchers said those with OCD are 'tortured' by 'negative thinking', while those with GAD 'worry about everything'.
But simply questioning why you are fretting could be all it takes to snap out of the bad habit, they added.
