Worry comes in different ways, and is triggered by a myriad of things. Could be a looming deadline, a query, family troubles, academic issues or health challenges. Whichever it is, the truth is, worrying is bad not just for your health, but for your love life too.
Here, we’ll examine 3 ways worrying can damage your relationship.
IT CAN PUT A WEDGE BETWEEN YOU AND YOUR PARTNER
People who worry rarely think of anything except the one thing they’re worried about. If it’s work, then, it’s occupying their thoughts for the entire period, and if it’s about their health, it’s the same. Worrying distracts you from your life and everyone in it while the one problem takes it all. What this means is you spend less time with your partner, and you stay by yourself more, consumed by thinking. Obviously, by spending less time with your partner, you create a wedge between you and your partner, which could cause serious communication problems, and a possible break up.
IT’S EASY TO TRANSFER ANGER AND PAIN
When you’re consumed by a problem, the easy way out is to look for people to blame for it. Transferring anger, pain and aggression is something you could start to do as you seek a way of understanding your predicament. This means your relationship will suffer more, and you’ll probably frustrate your partner out of being with you.
As I already mentioned, worrying often translates into being by oneself. What that means for you as a dating person is you’re alone more than you are with your partner. That also means you don’t communicate as well as you should. A relationship without good communication cannot last.
If you have a problem, the best thing to do is talk to someone about it. It could be a psychologist or a therapist, but above all, your partner deserves to know. And I think that helps cushion whatever effect it ordinarily would have on your relationship.
