Toxic People: 12 Things They Do and How to Deal with Them
These forums are a place where you can ask other young people advice on dealing with tough times and share your advice on what has worked for you. Please remember that it does not replace professional advice. Join the online community Login to post. Firstly I'll give an insight into my relationship to help base your advice around. My boyfriend and I have been together for 2 years. We are very close and have helped each other go through good and bad times. We do argue over silly things however most of the time we are completely happy in every aspect and we love to be in each other's company.
However for the last 6 months, I become depressed or anxious whenever I am not with him. I'm currently in Year 12 VCE and I love having someone to be completely free with but on Sunday nights when we part for work and school , I start to become overwhelmed by the thought of not being able to see him until the weekend or sometimes I see him Wednesday nights. He is usually at work, gym, soccer etc and he doesn't seem to have the separation anxiety that I suffer from.
He does miss me and he values the time we spend together however I seem to become very anxious whenever I'm not with him. I don't know how to deal with things if he's not with me.
If I'm home alone because mums at work I can't do homework, I can't practise dancing I go into shutdown and just lay in bed on my phone waiting until I can call him or text him etc. It's so unhealthy especially when I have so much on and I feel that my anxiety is getting in the way of me achieving my goals in school and dancing etc.
I just want an explanation or ways that I could deal with this. I have so many things that 'should' keep me occupied but I get too upset and overwhelmed by not having him with me that I can't physically or mentally do any of the important things such as chores, dancing, homework, working out etc. It is wonderful you have such a special relationship with your boyfriend. It is also important and healthy to find ways of being able to do things for yourself and by yourself.
Sometimes in relationships we become so dependant on the other person that we can feel like we are nothing without them. It sounds a little like you are feeling this way. I don't really know how you solve this, I would like to suggest you call the phone help line here at beyondblue on 22 , the people answering the phone will be able to help you.
You can help yourself through this inaction. Before you even get home, think about one thing you really need to achieve. Try to push yourself so you manage to at least start something. Reward yourself when you have done so in a healthy way. Even keep on encouraging yourself will help. Is there a counsellor at your school you could speak to or other students you could study with?
Have you talked to your Mum, she might have some words of wisdom for you as well. Hopefully you will find the motivation, dedication and enthusiasm you need to keep doing the things you need to do in order to get through this year at school. Thanks Mrs. D, I think the idea of a study group would be great and keep me motivated. I could also look into talking to the school counsellor. Thank you for such the great advice, I think it will really make a difference being able to make small independent changes such as trips to the shops.
Hope you are able to put some strategies into place to help you cope with the separation anxiety. I believe that in all relationships it is important to have the quality time together and to also have your own interests and passions.
That way you have the best of both worlds! The times together are precious and the moments apart can be fulfilling as well. You are currently: Home Get involved and help others Online forum.

Hi Peachy, It is wonderful you have such a special relationship with your boyfriend.
Cheers for now from Mrs. Dools has offered you some good advice and also carry a bracelet with a photo of him in it, and definitely have photos of him where ever you want to, you maybe doing this already, so increase the number of photos, have him in your purse, get a full-size photo blown up and stick it on your wall. It's an anxiety issue and when you're with him ask to go down to shop by himself, you know he will come back, and try to cope with these short periods of being away from each other, half an hour, an hour, but if you go with him, as much as I'm sure you do, then you won't be able to build any strength for separation anxiety.
It's a small exercise to practice, I know it's terrible but the two of you can't be together all the time, but what you can do is practice your dancing so when you see him you'll be so proud of yourself, just as he will be.
Thanks again!! Hi Geoff, Thank you for such the great advice, I think it will really make a difference being able to make small independent changes such as trips to the shops. Thanks again :. Hi Peachy, Hope you are able to put some strategies into place to help you cope with the separation anxiety.
Hope you manage to find a study group and some support at school as well. Cheers to you from Mrs. Back to top. Your session is about to expire. You have 2 minutes left before being logged out.

My relationship is making me sad
We have all had toxic people dust us with their poison. Being able to spot their harmful behaviour is the first step to minimising their impact. There are plenty of things toxic people do to manipulate people and situations to their advantage. Here are 12 of them. Knowing them will help you to avoid falling under the influence:.
I finally found the perfect girl, she is everything i have always wanted. I am the happiest person ever when im with her but the second we are apart i am extremely sad, sometimes even depressed. Nobody wants to be with someone who finds nothing else important other than them. Maybe she does. I suggest you find other passions in addition to your relationship.
Are You Scared Your Girlfriend Will Leave You? Read This!
I was wondering if you could tell me what the best way to deal with this situation is? After all, prevention is better than cure, right. A lot of guys are terrified that their girlfriend will leave them. Why are men so scared that their girlfriends will leave them? First of all, fear is a perfectly normal human emotion. That much is true. Fear of loss is also more powerful than our desire for gain.
6 Toxic Relationship Habits Most People Think Are Normal
Sure, they teach us the biology of sex, the legality of marriage, and maybe read a few obscure love stories from the 19th century on how not to be. But part of the problem is that many unhealthy relationship habits are baked into our culture. We worship romantic love — you know, that dizzying and irrational romantic love that somehow finds breaking china plates on the wall in a fit of tears somewhat endearing — and scoff at practicality or unconventional sexualities. Thus our partners are often seen as assets rather than someone to share mutual emotional support.
We might imagine it taking an important place at the centre of our life. The promise of a relationship can be a big part of what makes it such a joyful thing. Very few of us imagine that our relationship might one day become a source of sadness. Feeling this way can be a truly isolating and upsetting experience.
