I had left a relationship of almost five years because I didn’t feel mentally healthy anymore. After I spent the time alone figuring myself out and although I got lonely, I felt empowered and focused. I got into another serious relationship, and I feel the same anxiety as the previous relationship. I have trouble feeling grounded when a relationship has so many variables that I can’t control.
I really, really appreciate you sharing this. Thank you. Yes I have a feeling that what I am going through in my current relationship shop (although not in the same exact context) would come through in other relationships and possibly it is more of a personal mental health thing (despite whatever location I am in! This is the thing that bothers me) rather than a relationship thing.
What do you do to feel more grounded where you are or in your relationship?
