Recently I have noticed I don't feel right...

It's more of an insecure feeling and pretty much I am anxious and also insecure, it almost makes me depressed. This feeling has come a lot from my boyfriend and some problems with my family.

My boyfriend is younger than I am and still in high school, I attend a University about 2 hours away from home so it usually isn't too hard for us. However, my parents hate that we are dating i mean there are a lot of guys in college right? Well I can't help it I like him, and they have threatened me a lot about being on my own because I have taken "the wrong road."

This isn't exactly the problem but they have put a lot of stress on me and I feel like the weight of the world is on my shoulders.

The anxiety and insecurity comes from being cheated on in the past so there is a bit of a trust issue. Being away is hard, and I always feel as though I am going to get left and he is always looking at other girls and flirting to the extreme. I am a really faithful person in a relationship and he always says he loves me but I always feel like it is never enough.

I don't know what to do. I don't want to let go I am in love. I just feel very anxious and insecure about all this. I feel hopeless... cry

Somebody please help...

Hi need help and welcome to the HW anxiety/panic forum. My first thought is you need to focus on the here and now and quit comparing the present to the past. There is an old saying I have always liked, "You can't move forward, if you are always looking in the rearview mirror". What I am trying to say is let the past be the past and let things with your current boyfriend run their own course. Don't put him in the same category as the last guy. Let him be his own person and love him for who he is, not who you are afraid he will turn out to be.

Are there any therapists you can talk to at your school? That might be a good place to start to help you move forward with less anxiety.

Good luck
