Well I don't feel as if he is a burden to me but I do sometimes feel as if I am a burden on him. I have anxiety and depression, and the things my dad did/said caused me to always feel so annoying and as if im a waste of space etc. so i feel really bad if i ask for attention from my boyfriend but i require A LOT of attention
As someone who has dealt with this stuff... I think that people with anxiety/depression have to focus on themselves and better themselves alone. They shouldn't pull other people down too, and those people deserve better.
I've noticed that guys tend to take it personally when I stop reaching out, even though my anxiety makes it hard for me. My female friends generally just ask me what's wrong and reach out when they realize that I can't.
