Dating a guy with mental illness
Even if it’s a simple thing, it makes you feel good. But there are roughly 88 million people just in the U. Give yourself some credit because whatever shape a puzzle piece you are, there’s another piece out there looking to fit with you.
Esti* had been dating someone for several weeks and felt that before continuing, she must let the guy in on her secret.
Yes, you have very difficult days and sometimes weeks. You’re aware of the warning signs and what exacerbates it, and you get the help you need before it is too late.
I suffer from depression (ADHD, BPD, anorexia, etc.). Keep exceeding your own goals and you’ll feel like you’re a winner and ready to meet other winners.
I heard her get choked up as she said, “I really like him and I’m afraid he won’t want to continue anymore once I tell him. This is such a huge part of who I am.” Suddenly, a light bulb went off in my head.
“You know, God gives us lots of struggles and I am genuinely inspired by the way you handle yours with such grace.
I just wanted to tell you before we got more serious,” She’s going to place a lot of weight on those words. If you want to be the most comfortable and best you, you want to be in the place where you feel comfortable.
She sees how seriously it affects you, and that it may cast a large shadow on the relationship. And as you create successes for yourself, it makes you more confident and willing to make the next goal. That seems like a simple statement, but no one seems to follow it.Not only do many of us have something we struggle with, but the culture of not seeking help just exacerbates everything to the nth degree, where sometimes we think that it’s better to just not date at all. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.” If you tell yourself it’s OK to feel that way, and that your date is probably feeling the same way, it can help you move forward. If you would like to change your situation (in any way), it’s going to involve some discomfort. If you only lift what’s comfortable, you won’t be challenged, but you also won’t build anything. Add more weight and continue to make it uncomfortable for yourself.
