One Response to “Anxious Over Being Anxious” (Pingbacks/trackbacks not shown below)

i am a 19 year old girl.well i really dont have an idea where to start from. my life is very confused.
i dont know who am i. as i child i lived in an abusive family. when i grew up i
didnt have many friends. i was in a 2 relationships before. and presently in one.
i liked this guy a lot. but due to some problems we parted. he re entered my life.
and we are in a relationship now.
as a child i used to live in a dream world, where everything was perfect. when i grew
up i became addicted to it. and it became indispensable for me. my problem is i just can not stay
happy. i have turned into a misanthrope. sadness is my security.

this guy in my life loves me a lot. but i am not sure about my feelings. though even
i feel that i love him. but every time his being from a different religion then mine
is what bothers me. though i never confessed it to him.
i dont want him to go away as i have lost him once. i am having problems
in having sex with him. but dont know why. i have even refused him to have sex
any more. please help me out with my perplexity in life…….
please keep my identity confidential.
