Guy Has The Best Way Of Handling His Girlfriend's Anxiety

Having anxiety may leave you with a consistent fear that your partner will break up with you at any moment. When you are in a relationship with somebody that has anxiety, it helps to understand this. That's why Callie Amelia Theodore keeps her boyfriend Chris Briggs updated on her emotional struggles, and he addresses them.

In a Facebook post that soon went viral, Theodore, who suffers from anxiety, shared a text message conversation between her and Briggs, Self reports. 'Are we okay?' she asks. 'Very much so honey,' he responds. She replies with 'okay good' with three heart emoji's. Four simple and understanding words were all it took for her to calm those nerves.

Here is the Facebook post below: It reads:

'Someone with anxiety is inclined to assume everyone is going to leave. The truth is they battle something they can't control and there is a sense of insecurity within themselves when it comes to relationships. They know it's difficult and they don't want to burden you with their irrational thoughts and worries. So instead, they try to push you away before you get the chance to leave yourself.' (Thought Catalog)

It's hard loving someone who suffers from anxiety. They will be over sensitive, they will make up scenarios in their head causing an argument, and constant reassurance is needed.

Find yourself someone who doesn't make you feel like loving you is a job. Someone who will assure of you the little things. Someone who doesn't tell you that you're overreacting. Someone that will rock you on the floor in the dead middle of an anxiety attack. Find someone that no matter how hard you push them- they do not leave.

There are people out there like that. People that calm you and bring you a sense of security- that will be stronger than any dose of medication that can be prescribed. ❤

You may have anxiety, but anxiety doesn't have you.

My boyfriend did a really good job making a video on Youtube expressing what it's like to have a mental illness for anyone that can relate.
