If you happen to think that your depression or anxiety will prevent you from forming close, deep, and fulfilling relationships, both romantic and otherwise, please, know that you are not alone. A lot of people worry that having anxiety or depression might make them unlovable, or even repulsive, to other people.
So, if you happen to worry that once a person finds out about your condition, they will leave you, let me tell you that this is not true. Why?
Because not everyone is looking for perfection in you. Not everyone is expecting and wanting you to be flawless. Instead, they’re looking for honesty. They’re looking for kindness, compassion, and empathy. Because these qualities are the basis of any healthy, fulfilling, lost-lasting relationship and genuine intimacy.
So, if you happen to be concerned that your depression or anxiety might limit your chances to make friendships, love, and be loved, please, get rid of these negative thoughts. Because your psychological condition doesn’t take your worth and beauty away.
Your psychological condition, your insecurities, and your fears don’t outweigh your qualities and strength. They don’t define who you are.
And if someone is refusing to accept you for who you are, if someone is refusing to accept and cherish you with your condition, then know that their choice doesn’t define you. If someone can’t understand and accept your struggles, that says more about who they’re than it says about you.
Still, this doesn’t change the fact that when someone is put off by your condition, it hurts. This type of rejection is strong enough to cause you to think negatively of yourself: “I’m not lovable;” “I’ll never be happy:” “I wasn’t meant to love and be loved;” “No one wants to hang out with me.”
Remember, these negative thoughts have nothing to do with the truth. Because you are lovable. You deserve to be happy. You were meant to experience love. You are a worthy and beautiful person just the way you are.
Last but not least, remember that there are people in your life who truly love and care about you. People who want to see you happy and fulfilled. People to whom you mean a lot and who would do anything to help you overcome your anxiety or depression.
Maybe you find it hard to believe, but your family and closest friends are now more willing to love you and be there for you than you even know.
So, why don’t you just let them do that?
