If you experience chronic anxiety, it has likely impacted your life in significant ways. You may have felt its effects at your job or in your social life. Perhaps your hobbies and passions have taken a back seat because you’re so often consumed by anxious thoughts.
Anxiety can also take its toll on another important area of your life – your romantic relationships. Anxiety and relationships are a tricky combination, because when you already struggle to keep your emotions and fears in check, allowing yourself to be emotionally entangled with and vulnerable to another person can be confusing, overwhelming, and challenging.
