Do emotions make you feel anxious ?
18.03.2019 by alicewonderful

Hello everyone,

The girl I see is an alex.

She is not able to read what she feels for me, the only things she can say is that her feelings for me make her anxious.

She cries a lot when we talk about that, like an undecrypted emotional storm, and she feels very insecure (fear of commitment, fear of being abandoned, fear of not deserving love etc...)

I don't know what to do to make her feel better.

I deal with that kind of stuff too like fear of rejection and I’m hyper conscious of what people think of me for that reason.

I use music to try to portray how I feel, NF is how I feel as he has a range of emotional songs and they all give me a different buzz which helps me identify how I feel.

I don’t know what way you are connected to this person but recently I realised that someone actually liked me when I went to the cinema with them. I’m autistic so I find it difficult to relate to people and they often don’t like me. The way I finally could tell that I had made a friend and someone actually liked me was them willing to spend time with me.

The best way to show her that people care about you is ask them to go for a drink or something with you because you asking them shows that you legit like them and they will hopefully see this

Anymore questions I’m happy to answer.

Alexithymia - emotional blindness - is a personality trait characterized by the inability to identify and describe emotions in the self. Core characteristics of alexithymia are marked dysfunction in emotional awareness, social attachment, and interpersonal relationship.
Alexithymia is prevalent in approximately 10% of the general population and is known to be comorbid with a number of psychiatric conditions. Due the inability to cope with feelings and emotions as described in psychology there are counseling services to establish mental health.
Psychologist have argued that the alexithymia construct is strongly related to the concepts of psychological mindedness and emotional intelligence.
