10 Things You Need To Remember If You Love Someone With Anxiety
1. They're cool as heck.
People with anxiety are still people, just like you and me. They're still pretty awesome people. No need to treat them any differently.
2. It's not a limitation.
Their anxiety isn't necessarily ideal, but it's also not to be seen as a limitation.
3. Sometimes they flee.
Like introverts, there are times that people with anxiety need to flee from you and the world as a whole. They need time to recharge and center themselves.
4. Sometimes they ignore you.
But don't take it personally. People with anxiety aren't always up for interacting with you or anyone else. They need their alone time to deal.
5. Change can be hard.
Any change, big or small, can be difficult for a person with anxiety to manage. If you're going through a large change, like a move for example, be conscious of the fact that it may effect the person you love with anxiety in some profound and sometimes undetectable ways.
