How do I stop being a germophobe towards a particular person? Not exactly her germs but I feel the need to wash if she touches me or belongings... At first it was about her germs now its just her. How do I stop? Shes one of my good friends too. Nothing is wrong with her. How do I stop feeling like the need to wash ??
The mind is a complex puzzle. Any action may not yield an expected outcome. Without further information on the subject, I believe you'd need to talk about the issue to try getting at the source, mayhap understand your boundaries better, and acclimatise yourself whilst resisting discomfort. Any number of strangers may point out the logical flaws and it won't make a difference to the subconscious.
Depending on many factors, it may or may not be worth the effort. Partaking in community demands some measure of personal sacrifice.
