This is a topic I get asked about all the time, so lets talk about what to do when your anxiety has a negative impact on your relationships.  How can you approach family members and friends to get them on board with what you’re up against?

This probably isn’t the way you would expect me to address this topic, but I believe strongly that the approach I’m talking about is the correct approach.  Coddling, enabling and accommodating are not helpful to us in the long run so we really should not want our friends and family to relate to us that way.  By explaining your fear but also taking responsibility for your actions, and committing to do the work required to improve things, we can often gain the support of the people most important to us.

Want to support my work in some way?  Here's how to do that!
