No matter how supportive the partner, anxiety disorders can wreak havoc on a relationship, increasing conflicts, misunderstanding, and tension. Anxious in Love is a relationship guide for partners who have an anxiety disorder that offers readers proven skills for calming their anxieties and communicating with their partners. First, readers learn to self-soothe when their anxiety is triggered so that they can calm and center themselves when faced with their worries and fears. Second, readers learn to understand their anxiety from their partner’s perspective and develop new skills for handling anxiety-related conflicts that may arise. This section will be especially helpful for readers whose anxiety is triggered by disagreements in the relationship. Lastly, readers practice self-sufficiency and work on not relying on their partners to ease their worries or calm their anxieties. This can create an unfair burden on the partner that can lead to tension and conflict. This section emphasizes that it is the reader’s responsibility to take care of himself or herself in order to maintain a healthy relationship. The strategies in this book can help reduce conflict in any relationship that is affected by anxiety and increase communication and understanding between partners.
