10 Ways To Help Your Loved Ones When Fighting Depression/anxiety

While I was on my pursuit of passion, I journeyed across the United States in a search for passionate people, for self-purpose, and for personal clarity. In my travels, I noticed the amazing people who were on the road to success, and I realized this was the path I wanted to follow.

At the time, Kentucky basketball was on fire. They were undefeated and being talked about as a potential national champion.

“Are you cheering for our (real) Wildcats?” (he was referring to the real Wildcats of College Basketball not the University of Arizona).

He also said there will be no punishment for the fans who do not pay attention to the game.

At first, I was hesitant to talk about the game with someone that had a Kentucky shirt and hat on. I have many things I am passionate about – and one of them is the Kentucky Wildcats.

I have always been a basketball fan. The sport was where I first learned of the business world, and I always found myself fascinated by the personalities and teams we call the NBA. It seems like I am constantly on the outside looking in. I am not sure why.

I have been dealing with depression & anxiety for most of my life. Although, it never really affected my life until I met my wife in 2016. The first month we were together, we spent a lot of time together, and although I had seen a lot of her flaws, I was able to love her anyway.

You know as you continue to deal with depression, you may be feeling isolated and wondering how you are going to explain that to your family or friends.

I didn’t really play much after this. I couldn’t think about the game’s flaws. I just thought about how, at that time, I was depressed and how I was making bad decisions in my life.

I watched the video of my ex-boyfriend’s suicide for the ten millionth time. I cried like a baby. He was a fucking asshole. After five years of misery, I thought I was finally free.

Depression and anxiety can be seen as any mental illness that causes anxiety, depression, and/or negative thoughts. It involves a feeling of sadness and dissatisfaction with your current situation.

The Definition of Depression/Anxiety: 

a feeling of great discouragement; depressed state of mind; sadness; depression; a sad or depressed person.

A state of apprehension, which comes with intense emotional distress and a compulsion to indulge.

You don’t have to do that! Wait until I have finished all the onions!

I do not want to be that person because it will be the beginning of my own personal story. I’m not really sure where to start.

When my depression got to the point where I felt like crying all the time, my ex-fiancé was there to hold me and comfort me. Without him, I don’t know what I would have done.

When I look back on my depression and anxiety, I recognize that the way I treated my loved ones made the situation worse. I felt alone, because they were being affected by my depression and anxiety. I felt ashamed of my suffering because I was not being the person I wanted to be. My family was isolated from me and they did not know what to do – because I was treating them like they were the source of everything. These were the worst times.

I’m not very smart and I didn’t have a very good relationship with my parents.

It’s pretty common for caregivers to suffer from this, for a long time people have gone by the book and been the caregiver, but in the field of cancer awareness and treatment, there is a shift to more modern and less invasive methods of treatment and more research into the side effects of such methods. So while you may have been a caregiver for a loved one, you may go by the book with your loved one, or vice versa.

This is a very real thing, and you will have times when you think this person is not willing to stand by you when you are sick, or when you are acting strangely. Do not assume that they are not in your corner.

It was a constant battle between the “good” and the “bad”.

Looking back at the situation I can’t even imagine how hard it was for my loved ones to deal with me during my depressive and anxious state. But I can’t forget what I did, and how I dealt with it. I want to share that with you.

They would often pour all of their energy into trying to save me. This attempt at making me feel loved often worked, but, because I was still the same person, it was difficult to make me feel whole again.

I was now consumed by my cancer’s spread. It was getting worse and worse, and I would have to put on a brave face and try to do all I could for them, for it was them that I loved.

Now, I have identified 10 things about your depression and anxiety that may be hurting your loved ones. These symptoms can be preventing your loved ones from understanding and helping you.

1. Communicate

Depression is a state of low mood, loss of interest, low self-esteem, and even suicidal thoughts. Your partner may not directly understand how you are feeling, but they will know if your mood is affected and this affects your actions. Make sure to be open and tell them how you are feeling.

How important is it to communicate with your counsellor? Ask your counsellor for a little help in the how to communicate your feelings.

2. Don’t Let Them Save You – This is Not their Job

You are not a superhero and you should not try to be your loved one’s savior. Your loved one is not a superhero and they should not try to be your savior. In most situations, they are not qualified to treat depression and anxiety and attempting to do this will often lead to a painful feeling of frustration and a sense of failure.

A lot of times that’s what gets people through tough times in life–family, friends, and community.

The point of this exercise is to get you thinking about why you need support, and if you are doing all you can to get that, or if you are constantly seeking the validation of others to restore your strength and sense of worth.

When we are in a situation of conflict, or feeling any stress, we have a tendency to take the actions of someone else, rather than take our own action.

3. Get Help

If you do not want to suffer from feeling worthless, lost, and overwhelmed by your problems, first, you need to deal with your own emotional state, and then you need to bring that back into your relationships to share with others how you are feeling.

I felt afraid that people would no longer respect me or look up to me, and that they wouldn’t treat me with the same respect as they used to.

Because of the stress and fear I had been living with, I became very depressed and anxious. It led me to isolate myself and this was damaging to my relationships.

The most important thing is to seek help right away. If you are experiencing thoughts of suicide, there is help for you. If you are being abused, there is help for you. If you are experiencing other forms of trauma, there is help for you. There is help for you. There is help for you.

Your loved ones need to see you get help and get better so they know they can leave you if you ever need them. They need to believe that they can leave you and trust that you will pick yourself up and get better.

4. Let them Have Space Away from You if They Need It

“You are the one who caused me to leave my previous job and I am the one who is currently working under you in the same company”.

When my mind wanted me to think that she didn’t want to be with me or that she had feelings for someone else, my mind told my emotions to agree.

Then I had to tell myself that she probably loved someone else, because I was thinking about myself as the one she loved and that couldn’t be, because I was the one that she rejected.

“I don’t love you” is all I could think.

Then, she left, and when I was alone, I thought of the things I missed. And I started thinking about the many things I had to do, the things that I wanted to have happen, and how my life was not going as it was supposed to.

No matter how good a relationship seems to be, keep in mind that it will always change and evolve over time. If you love them and you want to make sure you don’t forget about them when they are gone: Give them the room you need to grow and evolve.

It might be the end of a relationship, the final breakup, or possibly even the end of a person. It might be the end of a relationship, the final breakup, or possibly even the end of a person.

5. Make Sure to Take Some Time & Focus on Them

I know about your depression and anxiety, but I am going to focus on your heart and how the people around you can help you.

Once you decide not to let these people go to waste, it’s important to keep the same enthusiasm and devotion you had before, but really try to make them feel you love them again. And when you decide you want to tell them what you are thinking, really try to do it, and really listen to them.

In the last year, it has been a rough year for all of us. And I could go through a list of the sacrifices that everybody’s family is making. And every single one of those people that you are seeing sitting along the sidelines, there is a sacrifice that they are making. They are giving up their time, their energies, and they are giving up their money, and they’re giving it all up for you.

It is a book that all of us should live by. We all face fear and love, and we all know that we need to let go of fear and live in a sense of love.

6. Allow them to Go to a Counselling/Therapy Session With You

It may be difficult to convince your loved one to attend counseling. It may be wise to have them join for a single sessions or multiple sessions.

Being present for the process is something that can really help, whether they’re a family member who’s directly involved or not.

A certified counselor will be able to help you through your loss and grieving process. This can be extremely difficult and can often seem like a foreign language. A certified counselor will be able to break this down and help you understand this process.

7. Research Depression & Anxiety Together & Walk Through the Symptoms

It is hard for someone else to understand the feelings that you are going through.

I wish I had been able to understand and communicate what depression and anxiety feel like for others so that they could also help my loved ones understand and communicate what it feels like to fight depression/anxiety.

This is a story about a girl who likes to live on the edge and a guy who likes to make money.

It is important to read because we can compare and contrast what we are experiencing to what someone else has experienced. Writing allows us to share our experience with others. Reading shows us how many people have experienced the same things that we have. It allows us to know that we are not alone. It gives us support and encouragement. It reminds us of the past and gives us hope for the future.

With the help of the internet we can learn more about mental health, even if you don’t know the first thing about depression or anxiety, with the help of the internet we can learn more about depression and anxiety, it really isn’t as scary as it seems.

8. Set Boundaries

I could see why you might not want to send out resumes to people who don’t even know you exist. But, I’d be fine with you asking for my CV, and providing updates about your company, or you could even share other material.

When my panic attacks started, I felt so scared and hopeless. My ex would tell me that I was going to hurt myself or jump off a bridge, and it made me want to leave the house to escape the panic.

When I wouldn’t let my significant other leave the house, I was acting out my anxiety and fears, which caused my significant other to start avoiding me. This caused a wedge in our relationship, and created fear and pain in both of us.

I believe that if we had communicated, we would have been able to set some boundaries and avoid this happening.

I know that you don’t like to do something you know you shouldn’t do, and you’re not comfortable doing something you know you should.

We could have established some guidelines and boundaries that would have made us feel safe. But, what we did not have was a written plan. We could have worked through the challenges. But, without a plan, what we did was just talk.

9. Don’t Put All the Pressure On One Person

I have an insane family and an absolute best group of friends.

Even with an amazing support system, all the pressure is put on one person – that person is you.

Make sure support people are on call so that they can step in and help when the going gets tough. If you don’t have one of these people, consider making an appointment and setting a time to talk.

The problem I’m having is that he doesn’t want to admit that he needs help…. This is just one man, and he’s the only person who can change things.

Don’t be afraid to ask for help. No one is immune from needing help.

But if they are completely honest about what it is and what it means and they are really just looking for a friend they can trust, then after a while they could be like a very strong relationship.

A good team can really make the difference between a negative experience and a positive one. It is important to let your team know you trust them so they can help you when you are in pain.

10. Always Remember These Two Important Factors

You live in a state of depression, it’s not healthy and you feel like no one is listening to you.

I agree that it can be a lifelong sentence, but I guess I’m just trying to be optimistic.

If you really loved the person with depression, you would make an effort to show them that you care.

If and when you love someone, you should be willing to love themselves and them exactly the way they are.
