A lot of anxiety stems from feelings of uncertainty.
It’s the not knowing or not understanding why his behavior is inconsistent that gets to us.
It’s knowing in our hearts that we deserve to be understood, accommodated and forgiven, yet rarely getting those things.
One episode of anxiety that lasts only minutes, can have lasting effects on a relationship.
Anxiety is feeling way too much pain, yet being in a dissociated state or feeling as though it’s pointless to keep trying to explain how we feel.
When I’m anxious, sometimes my empathy, rational thinking, and true feelings go out the window while anxious thoughts temporarily take over. It could be the most innocuous comment or the most insignificant change in someone’s behavior.
I may be suffering, but I keep that suffering to myself, and I attempt to keep my anxious thoughts to myself.
Sometimes, it does manifest, and it will be noticed and commented on – but for the most part, I’ve learned to be a high-functioning individual with anxiety.
And, not knowing how he truly feels or who else he might be pursuing when he’s not with you.
Is he talking to other women, or keeping other women on the backburner?
Is he truly interested in pursuing this, or is he continuing to look at other options?
Those are just a few examples, but in general, a feeling of being ‘in the dark’ or ‘uncertain’ is what anxiety sufferers can’t stand.
Ideally, I’d love to have a partner who could be consistent in his words and behaviors, and reassure me that he loves me every single day.
