This is what Anxiety looks like for me:
But what it feels like, is a little more dark and hard to understand.
I don't even give people the chance to love me the right way when it's happening. There's no way they could even know.
How would anyone know to be a little more fragile. How would they even figure out that I can't handle it. Because they don't even know that my chest is caving in or my heart is racing, to the point I can't breathe.
They don't know, because they don't see it and I don't tell them, or better, I won't tell them.
Loving someone with anxiety, is more then just telling someone you are there. It's more then just reassuring them you won't ever leave. Because some of us. Are so good at making it seem like we DON'T need anyone. Like we are fine if you come, or you leave.
Sometimes loving someone with anxiety is complicated and messy and a little freaking confusing. So yeah, it takes a strong person to love someone with a mental illness.💕
