IF SHE HAS ANXIETY/ ANXIETY

If she has anxiety.
Chances are you feel she is lost to you, that you’re walking on eggshells, frightened to rattle her already so delicate cage.

That you’re lonely and frightened, unable to reach the woman you love – or show her to a safe place in her rocky sea.

If she has anxiety, you most probably feel she is adrift and you cannot reach out a hand no matter how hard you stretch. The tips of her fingers are just too far from your grasp.

No doubt, you have tried many times to ease her worry and stroke away her frown lines but nothing you can do is enough.

I’m betting you have got angry with her in these times – frustrated by her inability to pull it together. Then sorry for your lack of understanding.

A vicious cycle of regret and failing.

 

If she has anxiety.

Imagine, if you can, a racing of the pulse, a quickening of the breath and a pounding of the heart. Triggered by the slightest of altercations in your life, sometimes nothing at all.

The feeling of being suffocated and drowned all at once whilst being unable to communicate your danger to anyone.

The inability to enjoy almost anything for the fear and worry of what comes next.

The feeling that your life is spiralling out of control if you take one step off the treadmill.

The absence of any lasting joy.

 

If she has anxiety.

Love her, accept her, cherish her and guide her through the roughest times.

Talk to her, shine a light on the symptoms and recognise them as something to be worked on and not a failing of any kind.

Hold her, be a friend, be a team-mate and a confidant.

Be patient, do your research.

Anxiety is not a life-sentence but it is a death to many relationships and it is a killer of joy.
You may not have signed up for this but neither did she.

 

If she has anxiety.

Refuse to give up on her.

She is worth fighting for.

Find a way to bring her home.
