Jealousy and negative thinking
I am a 28 year old firefighter from the UK, I am not bad looking and have got a lot going for me. But I have always struggled with low self-esteem and have very low self confidence. I suffer from adult ADHD and have been treated in the past for anxiety.
I have the most amazing girlfriend that I have been with about 3 months, I am completly in-love with her, The problem I have is, no matter what she says to me, I always think negative things for example, If she said I was the best boyfriend she's ever had, I'd get upset thinking about her ex boyfriends and not be really happy that she thinks I'm the best?! It's really getting me down and although she hasn't really noticed I'm affraid she will at some point and be upset with me. I just want to be happy and not run negative thoughts through my head whenever she says anything to me.
Many thanks for any help or advice.
