Tips To Help You If Your PARTNER Has Anxiety:
Tips To Help if YOU Have Anxiety:
If you’re in a relationship and you struggle with anxiety the truth is, your partner is dealing with it too.
Whatever limits anxiety is placing on you, it’s also placing it on your partner. Anxiety is a problem when it stops you doing things you really want to do.
When anxiety is placing limits on where you go, where you live and what you do in life it means you are losing control.
Losing control in terms of a relationship means you are not choosing what you want, you are waiting for some kind of sign to show you that you could go to different places, and you could do a lot of things.
Before you know it, your relationship revolves around what you can and can’t do because of your “anxiety”. It breeds resentment in the relationship too.
Anxiety causes stress on the relationship because your partner is not in control either. And that’s when the connection in your relationship can start to see cracks.
Basically, everything in life is played with the attitude “See What Happens”.
You’re waiting for something to happen in your life instead of stepping in and giving your life a direction.
Your partner ends up facing decisions to wait until you’re able or unable to do things with them that you used to enjoy or if they need to start doing things on their own. They can’t give up things because of your anxiety.
And this is how division is created in the relationship. You either work through the anxiety to be part of life experiences or you will feel like you’re missing out.
Your partner will be put in a position to choose you or the whatever the thing is thats happening life eg. a party, camping, travelling.
It’s nice when they choose you but when they don’t choose you it’s going to feel person. The over thinking kicks in and all of a sudden they don’t love you. Which is not true at all.
There is also a big difference between suffering anxiety symptoms or trauma. If you or your partner suffer Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or PTSD as it’s also known as, then it’s even more important to get help and not do it alone.
Some symptoms are normal reactions to trauma and some grow into much bigger psychological disorders if left untreated.
Everyone experiences anxiety. It’s a normal human emotion. The difference is other people are not living with their anxiety.
They feel it, consider their options and keep moving forward. They push through it.
