Do you believe that your anxiety holds you back from having healthy romantic relationships? You may have told yourself that you are flawed and broken and that, therefore, nobody wants to date you, let alone be with you. Or that you won’t measure up and aren’t worthy of true love and have to settle for anyone willing to accept you.
Like so many people I work with, you, too, may struggle not to identify yourself with an anxiety disorder or OCD, believing these emotional challenges define who you are.
The truth is that a diagnosis does not define you but is the starting point for your healing journey.
