If you worry that your anxiety or depression will limit your chances for relationships, you’re not alone. Many people are concerned that having a psychological condition—especially a chronic one—might make them unattractive to other people. How am I going to find friends or a partner when I’m dealing with depression or anxiety? Who’s going to want to sign up for this?

The fear of rejection can make you think that your only option is to hide your condition – that if you tell the truth, people will leave. But, most people aren’t looking for perfection from you—they want honesty. Honesty is the foundation of relationships and true intimacy. And rather than your struggles being a deal breaker, the person likely will recognize them as a single aspect of who you are.
