Occasional anxiety is an expected part of life. Anxiety disorders involve more than temporary worry or fear. For a person with an anxiety disorder, the anxiety does not go away and can get worse over time. The symptoms can interfere with daily activities such as job performance, school work, and relationships.
Conflict is a normal part of any healthy relationship. After all, two people can’t be expected to agree on everything. The key to a healthy relationship is not to avoid conflict but to learn how to resolve it in a healthy way. When conflict is mismanaged, it can cause great harm to a relationship, but when handled in a respectful, positive way, conflict provides an opportunity to strengthen the bond between two people.
When depression strikes, it can feel like the world is against you, that no one understands. The isolation one feels shades the ability to see life clearly. Depression can happen at any time of life and often occurs following a stressful period in life, even joyful ones like the birth of a child, or a marriage. Whenever depression happens, it is important to acknowledge that you are experiencing it and to get help.
