Is there any way to get rid of a neurotic personality trait?

Neurosis is good for nothing. It makes me miserable sometimes. I'm in a very neurotic mood and I feel horrible. I want to get rid of it. Please someone help.

Do you think you could go watch a good movie with some snacks and a pillow and blanket? Get all comfy with comfortable clothes likes sweats and a t-shirt ? That's what I do when I feel really out of sorts . I also try and stay away from everyone . I have a habit of picking at my skin so I get some strawberries or popcorn to est to keep my hands off my skin . Also, sometimes a really hot bath will help with some quiet music. Maybe do the bath and music first and then the movie how I explained above .? Hang in there Marcus :)

Thanks, Ms. Sincerity.
.
I decided to make a list of the main characteristics of my neurosis. One of the objects caught my attention: I feel like I'm doing something wrong when I stop worrying. Is this average for neurotic people?

A great a approach.
It's such a waste to worry. That is the main thing I am working on right now. Do you have someone who can talk you down when you worry ? I have to handle myself most times and it's real hard because my imagination runs away. If there is some way to calm your imagination or change it to something else... I have to lie down and listen to quiet music . It's hard sometimes .

Sincerity - Best for me is probably playing a video game. :P

Sometimes I have to take it rarely n-mom so I don't mess with my skin and it works . A very very mild dose .

Every time you catch yourself you have to stop. That's it. And the more you stop yourself the easier it gets. It's not simple, it sounds simple. It's a daily battle.

I understand. I'm 32 and have felt with it as long as I can remember. Mindfulness can take you far. Hang in there, you aren't alone.
