Are Your Relationships Struggling?
If you are struggling with depression, anxiety, or past abuse chances are the important relationships in your life are struggling too. It could be relationships between you and your spouse, between you and your children, you and your boss or co-worker, you and a close friend, or any other important relationship.
Do you find that those most important to you avoid you? Do you find that you can’t seem to get the support you once had? Maybe you’re just exhausted. Maybe you are the loved one watching your friend or spouse suffering from the pain of depression, anxiety, or past abuse?
What Should You Look For As A Concerned Loved One, Friend, or Employer?
You may have noticed that your loved one, friend, or employee has become more and more distant and withdrawn. Do they lash out in anger or rage? Do they miss important functions or meetings because “they forgot”? They seem scatter brained. Do they seem to lack motivation for day to day life? Do they lack clarity about their future? Maybe they’ve even talked (even jokingly) about dying or not wanting to be “here” anymore. Do they seem to always be tired?
Maybe they seem to be afraid or nervous a lot. Do they interrupt conversations where they talk over the recipient and then apologize for even being there? Maybe their self-esteem is shot? Do they seem to have nervous excitement followed by fear or a deep low? Maybe they can’t seem to control their fear or nervous tension?
