Anxiety is a that affects so many of us. It can affect every aspect of our lives, from going on holiday to our sex lives and relationships. Relationship coach Gary Amers says, “Anxiety stems from the coping mechanism perceiving that something is wrong or that you are not in control. Many relationships end unnecessarily because of it.”
So here’s some common signs that you might be experiencing relationship anxiety – and how to cope if you are.
You picture things going badly
… or spend too much time imagining undesirable outcomes.
This negative mindset will always create negative emotions as the body is designed to elicit negative emotion if we’re around negativity. The majority of negative focus is based on assumption, or limiting beliefs, Gary says.
You find it difficult to be present
Anxiety stops you loving to your full potential, and if there is ever something that blocks the ability to be present, it’s anxiety, he explains.
You have negative self-talk
Gary says it’s not the words you say out loud to your partner that create anxiety, it’s the words you whisper to yourself throughout the day.
You doubt or question yourself and natural abilities
We all have natural talents, skills and capabilities, but as Gary explains, anxiety will cause you to question your own.
You feel unclear about what you want or need
Gary says many of his clients disregarded what they needed and valued in the presence of anxiety, because they felt too embarrassed and vulnerable to be clear.
What you can do
If you’ve related to these points, please know you don’t have to go through this alone. Relationship anxiety can be treated through hypnotherapy, relationship coaching and neuro-linguistic programming (NLP).
Gary explains that NLP works by removing all of the triggers that create conflict.
