Anxiety and Anxiety in Relationships

Previous note: In this post about “Anguish and Anxiety in relationships” I propose some reflections, in addition to bringing testimonies, whose names have been changed to preserve the identity of the deponents.

Our Relationships

We have a great facility to look at the past and take out of our “chest” a lot of things that we put back in our present.

A betrayal that someone has committed, slander, discord , disagreement, etc., things that should be in the past, we bring up every day, which continue to plague our existence.

At present, there are many times when we find ourselves in very complicated situations: debts to pay and not having money; illness and doctors who don’t give much hope; rebellious children; a marriage without respect or love.

It could be so many things…

The truth is that the human being is the same everywhere. He suffers, cries, laments and often despairs. This is part of our humanity.

And that’s why many get tired of life, don’t even deal with the problems of today and still have to carry the problems that they can’t solve anymore, precisely because they are in the past.

Sometimes we intentionally hurt each other in our relationships, sometimes unintentionally, but in both cases it takes a lot of compassion to generate and sustain unity.

Anxiety and Anxiety in Relationships

To forgive?

The true union, friendship or relationship that exists mutual support, people experience compassion, being a space for benevolence, where mistakes are not constantly remembered, but forgiven and overcome.

It is not possible to have unity in the workplace, in a community organization or in the family without forgiveness, as bitterness and resentment always destroy relationships.

When we are hurt by another person, we have a choice to make: retaliate or resolve. It is not possible to do both when using our energies and emotions to resolve the issue. Many are hesitant to show compassion because they don’t understand the difference between trusting and forgiving.

Forgiving means letting go of the past. Trust has to do with future behavior.

Is it necessary to trust?

Trust requires history, regardless of the therapeutic action we choose to take. Unforgiveness can turn into emotional cancer, a lethal source of permanent bitterness.

However, we are not expected to immediately trust the person who has hurt us, nor are we expected to continue to allow them to offend us. They need to cultivate and prove over time that they have changed in order to regain our trust.

The ideal is to seek the help of a professional to carry out a therapy, because alone you can see the light under the rubble, you cannot visualize the real dimension of the problem!

A deep restoration is needed to control anxiety and anguish, so that we avoid making desperate or hasty decisions, as well as not acting on their forces or impulses.


There are hurts to be healed and, like a thermometer, you will have to reset the hurt that is currently very strong in order to restore the relationship.

Restlessness and expectation, not infrequently, take control of our mind and body. As a result of this situation, we become nervous and impatient, leaving those who are with us the noble disposition of patience and tolerance in the face of our unbearable behavior.

So live the seconds, minutes and hours today, until the day is over, walk step by step through the minefield with strength and determination, without haste. Have the serenity to accept everything you cannot change and the wisdom to distinguish what you can and cannot change.
