Question Is it bad not worrying about having disturbing thoughts? - January 27th 2013, 08:10 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering by the original poster or by a Moderator. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

Hi,
It surely has been a while since I had to cross against this site again, but I do have some things that im quite confused about. This could or may consider mental health. Let me get to the point, but at first I was confused whether the disturbing thoughts of sexual torture and enjoying people being hurt was normal or just bad. Buy, lately I dont think they are bad at all and it's just part of myself now or something and I can also say I do seem sadist, but I swear I have never acted upon any sort of torment. I just have accepted the feelings that's all. Any thoughts about it?Comments? Thanks.

I'd say not to worry about it. Everyone has fantasies that we can't control. I know I've had them. It just seems completely natural.

I guess so. Thanks anyway. It's just I've been called a sadist before, and I just been accepting it, but I don't know.

For this particular situation, I think there are two questions worth asking yourself.

1) Do these thoughts impair my every day functioning?
2) Do I feel I will act on these thoughts and hurt an unwilling participant?

If the answer for both questions is "no," then I don't think you have anything to worry about. Everyone has disturbing thoughts - we are exposed to things that place ideas in our minds, and how we handle them determines how dangerous those thoughts are. If you can "accept" them, continue to function at work/school/with friends/family/etc., and don't feel you would force someone to do something against their will (or put yourself in a dangerous situation), then I don't think you have to necessarily do anything else. Now, it would be different if these thoughts were worrying you or upsetting you, to the point where you couldn't concentrate on your work/school/relationships and started to fall apart... but that doesn't seem to be happening. It would also be different if you wanted to subject an unwilling participant to sadistic behavior... but again, you haven't given any indication of wanting to do that.
