Reading this good information here makes one understand people that is in grief. Dealing with grief is really difficult that is why it is important for the people around you to understand. I find it very frustrating on the lack of resources available in Spanish for our families and even offered an institute once to translate some resources from their trauma-informed model.

The Antidote to Fear
Love and accept myself first. And then it is comes easy… When we radiate love we attract the same… Acceptance is my loving action: Thank you Sheryl! You shine. Hi Sheryl, thank you so much for such an honest article!! I am still reading and learning open your heart course. I prefer to do the inner work slowly. Rather than squeeze every bit of information into my small brain all at once.. If we become friends with fear it will sigh and vanish into thin air. It has been my experience, i say this with excitement and cheer.
I was scared of fear before but now I dont indulge into its fantasy of lies. Thanks to you Sheryl.

Thank you for the article! I recently got a new job though and I will be moving in with my boyfriend! At first this news made me very excited but Now the fears are coming back. I want it back. How do I take loving action against these thoughts? Breaking up is the opposite of what I want. Yes, those are common fear-based, intrusive thoughts. The work is to steer away from focusing on those thoughts as much as possible and then ask yourself what the thoughts are protecting you from feeling or helping you avoid dealing with.
Lauren I have had these thoughts before as well. They will slowly go away. Sheryl, is it normal to have these fears at the onset of each transition? Right now I am going through a career change and am planning on moving in with my loving boyfriend but I do have fear. Thank you, Carmen! I have just purchased the Wedding E-course… I am nowhere near getting engaged, and I have seen from the first lesson that it talks a lot about being engaged and going through the stage of getting married.
Does it talk about engagement transition throughout the e-course? Sheryl, I feel like for the past 7 months I have been trying to hold on to this relationship because he is everything I have ever wanted. The depression and anxiety that I have suffered since January, because I had decided to stop taking medication has been projected into my partner. For the past 7 months I have been checking every moment that I spend with him, sometimes looking at him while he sleeps, checking whether I have love feelings towards him, checking with friends over their relationships, whether or not they are having sex enough or whether or not they are having doubts about their partner.
I have also had two of my friends who are no longer with their partner, and this fueled my anxiety A LOT! I asked one of my friends, and told her how come you guys decided to part? She said that although he was a good guy, they were not meant for each other. That knowledge turned me into a complete mess.. Sheryl, are these thoughts and obsessions normal to think?
The course will help you enormously, Melissa. You may want to skip lessons one and six for now and focus on the rest of the lessons.

Hang on! Thank you so much Sheryl for such a fast reply! I will skip lesson 1 for now then and focus on the second one. I have also joined the forum, which is really comforting, there are a lot like me! Do you think these obsessions and thoughts that I am having, and the asking of questions to people is normal and is relationship anxiety and not out of love feelings Sheryl? Thank you for all that you do Sheryl.. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. All classic symptoms of relationship anxiety, Melissa, as you will soon see the more you work through the material and read through the forum.
Hi Sheryl. Thank you for everything that you do. Your work helped me a lot especially when I was at my worst and now I rarely experience that anxious feeling. I know you are very busy with helping everyone who needs you. Wow, you are so amazing! Everything you write just soothes me so much! I have learnt so much about my self from reading your blog posts.
What evidence is there for this thought or feeling? It is normal to feel scared sometimes, but do not turn normal scared feelings into doubts. Nobody is perfect. It is normal to feel annoyed or irritated with him sometimes, you are only human. Not everything you think is real. Relationships are up and down all the time just the same as life. I am currently gearing myself to moving in my with partner.

We have been long distance so there will be big changes, and like everyone on here I hate change! So I have been reading over those things to help me relax. Hannah, can you tell me a little about your experience with fear and long distance? My boyfriend and I will be going long distance for about a year after having failed miserably the first time. I now recognize that purely my fears drove me to break up with him 6 months ago and I am so fortunate to have him back in my life. What helped you and your partner cope and stay positive?
Sorry for the late reply! I have struggled with the distance a lot due to missing him and instrusive thoughts. But it seems that he has found it a breeze. We usually talk on the phone about times a day. I usually only feel scared or worried or anxious when I am away from him. You just have to keep reminding yourself why you chose to be with this person in the first place.
