Anxiety is the body telling you to listen to it. Paying attention to our thoughts and feelings is always healthy. A panic attack to put it simply, is like a whole bunch of feelings that happens all at once, at full force due to prolonged lack of acknowledgement.
Depression carries such a negative connotation. The stigma attached to this very human condition is unrealistic. Its assigned to those that are weak or even helpless. There is nothing further from the truth. Let's consider that perhaps depression isn't a negative thing and instead the body saying listen, prompting us to consider a healthier way of living.
Relationships are necessary , we need to feel like we have a sense of connection with others. The need to spend time sharing our experiences and feeling supported is important to us. We don't like loneness. In addition all of us have our own ideas of how much value interpersonal relationships have, though under developed can create distrust, emotional conflict, as well as lack of support in our lives.
Who has the most power in the relationship? Does this person get away with more? Do you really wish you could stay together? Often question whether this is right for you...
