Design Your Universe- Part 2



This is a follow on to my post Design Your Universe- Part 1 which is about using of the Law of Attraction (LOA) to create the life of your dreams. This is a work in progress for me and I'm doing a series of posts on the process.

Note: This is what I've been doing and it's not the definite way to do anything, so just take what you resonate with :)


In my first post I outlined two steps:

1. Feel better.
2. Change your beliefs and believe that your dreams can come true.

I may add more to this in the future but it's what I've been working on for a while now. Please see the original post (linked above) for more on them.

In Part 1 I said that I would write more about tools in Part 2. So here we go. :)

The Love Project- Romantic Love (Relationships and Anxiety)

Back in December I did the latest post in The love Project series, on the subject of romantic love. You can read it here: http://fallingpetalsuk.blogspot.co.uk/2016/12/the-love-project-romantic-love.html

Then I wrote about feeling shame over being single. Today I want to address anxiety in relationships. As I've mentioned before I have anxiety. The main issue I have is health anxiety (HA) but I also have general anxiety and a bit of social anxiety. This can make it hard to socialise and connect with others. I'm also wary of forming relationships due to negative past experiences with friendships and probably because of my early family life as well.


Dating with anxiety

I've not been on many dates and when I have met up with someone it was more of a friendship thing. I was extremely nervous when I did meet up with a man but at least I know I am able to do it. Going on dates is something I'd like to explore more of, so that's what I've been thinking about lately.

I recently did an online search for "dating with anxiety" and I came across a couple of useful sites. I find it helpful to see others sharing their experiences with anxiety and in particular dating with anxiety. One blog I found it called The Anxious Girl's Guide To Dating. There are some goods posts on there. Here are a couple:
