It’s not always about you
For the most part it has nothing to do with the person an anxious person loves, but there are often times when it is hard to deal with it or simply don’t know how to deal with it.
This can create a lot of confusion for the loved one, this is why it is important to have understanding and compassion.
It can be pretty exhausting ruminating about everything we possibly have done wrong, are doing wrong, or could do wrong.
We may want to sit and cry sometimes. We may be uninterested in our activities. We may snap at you, even though you absolutely don’t deserve it.
We may even get nervous that you don’t love us anymore, even if you’ve given us no indication of this.
We want you to know above all else that it doesn’t have to do with you. It’s not your fault.
We love you, and we’re so, so sorry if we ever give the impression that we don’t. We just don’t love our brain right now, and we don’t know how to deal with it.
