People with anxiety rarely can calm themselves down enough to sleep through the night.

If you want to have a rewarding partnership with someone who is dealing with regular anxiety, it’s important to understand that this person’s day-to-day life comes with a set list of tasks that need to be completed.
Freaking out that you aren’t getting enough attention, or that your partner is taking his or her responsibilities too seriously will only frustrate the both of you and lead to resentment.
The only way there will be peace is if your partner has completed everything he or she needs to do.
