Wondering if you can have a successful relationship even when suffering from anxiety? Well, the answer is yes. It’s absolutely possible! In fact, finding a partner who understands your anxiety can have a huge impact on your life. If you suffer from anxiety, being in a relationship can actually help relieve some of your anxiety symptoms.
Anxiety is caused from a sense of urgency to get from one point to another, without delay. The thought of reaching to that particular goal increases anxiety levels because all you can think about is the end result, and the eagerness to get there. The victims are very results oriented, therefore, easily trigger their anxiety if they don’t reach their end result fast enough.
Being in a new relationship can be overwhelming at first, and can cause a great deal of anxiety because you become anxious to see where the relationship is headed to. You want to learn everything there is to know about that person in a short period of time, and gauge whether it is worth the efforts or not. Being in a rush to make it to the desired goal will cause the wheels in your head to start spinning, which results in anxiety. Sometimes you can obsess over the worst outcome, rather than focusing on being positive.
A healthy relationship is bound to increase your chances of overcoming anxiety quicker but how you handle it will determine the outcome.
Having patience for someone who suffers from anxiety is key; It means that you’ll need to give them all of your attention, and seek understanding. Ask questions that will make them feel cared about, and that their feelings are well understood.
Understanding the triggers of anxiety will definitely be a guiding tool to helping your loved one from that path. That’s why it’s so important to keenly listen to what they’re trying to communicate and master their body language expressions. It might seem petty or strange to you, but for someone with anxiety it’s extreme, and can set them into a panic. Thus, avoid belittling their quirks because their concerns are bigger in their eyes.
A simple smile from your loved one can bring about so much happiness, and a feeling of comfort. Smile at them when they walk through the door, and ask how their day was, dig deeper into how their day panned out.
Trustworthiness allows one to feel peaceful, happy, and in control of their life. People gain trust in themselves when they feel that they can trust you. It brings about confidence in a person, and gives them the ability to feel deserved and worthy.
”Do unto others as you would have them do unto you!” Without respect, then nothing else matters. It nullifies all other definitions of a healthy relationship.
Having the ability to understand what someone else is feeling is crucial. When you understand someone else’s feelings, it makes it easier for you to fit in their shoes, and make the best decision for making them feel better. You never want to ridicule or be dismissive to their emotions, or their openness with you.
Be supportive and non-judgmental, because you don’t have the ability to truly understand what it’s like for someone with anxiety. It might take them awhile to find their place, where they are truly content. Be there for them and don’t look at them as though they’re losing it, rather learn to walk with them through every new chapter.
Comforting your partner especially during times of distress, is essential for their well-being, and for your relationship overall. It can quickly ease their pain, and alleviate stress. When you console a person it makes them feel closer to you, and gives them a sense of peace, and reassurance.
”Don’t forget, we all need love and affection in order to thrive in this crazy world. Make every effort to emotionally satisfy the ones that you love, and you will have a lifetime of happiness.”
You’re going to be okay! Breathe and remember that you’ve been in this place before. You’ve been this uncomfortable and anxious and scared. And you’ve survived. Breathe and know that you can survive this too. These feelings can’t break you. They’re painful and debilitating, but you can sit with them and eventually they will pass. Maybe not immediately, but sometime soon, they are going to fade and when they do, you’ll look back at this moment and laugh for having doubted your resilience. I know it feels unbearable right now, but keep breathing, again and again. This will pass. I promise it will pass.
