In the past six months I’ve pushed away my best friend, I fell in love with him and after he started to fall for someone else I started to push and fight meanwhile my anxiety got worse. Not wanting to hurt him any longer I asked for a break, while taking that break his depression came back and he lashed out at everyone. We are now talking again and I’m just in so much pain because I put him in pain. I just worry my anxiety caused me to permanently break a relationship with my person. How do I stay patient waiting for him to forgive me while trying to not suck him into my anxiety farther. I don’t want my anxiety to exhaust him but I also know his presence makes me happier.
