Long Distance Relationship Anxiety
Firstly, I'm sorry to hear that you are having a challenging time- posting here can be a great first step in addressing things.
I see you are in some distress and feeling overwhelmed- do you have a support network around you? Some consolation and fresh perspective might bring some relief for you. We, of course, can always provide a listening here if you want to chat more in-depth here, and/or help you build on the support network you have, whether that be helping reach out to people around you or seeking professional help.
Please be gentle with yourself, and self-care as much you need too, whatever that means to you. Check back with us if you want too- no pressure either way.
too welcome you to this forum and well done for writing your first post.
Long distance relationships are hard even when in same state or same country, but in different countries it can be quite challenging.
I think sometimes people make jokes and don't realise that the other person may not find them funny but be upset.
It is impossible to compare problems so your concerns are just as important as anyone else.
When you are so far away every thing seems exaggerated and you worry and worry over every little word.
Is it possible to email him and explain how you are feeling and why you worry about your future.
Have you spoken to anyone about how you feel. Would you consider talking to a support line?
They are trained to listen and give support advice and action. 1300 22 4636
