I need any type of answers so I don’t go crazy from guilt. I was talking about my kind of boyfriend to my coworkers and made a comment regarding that he’s bald and called him a hatfish to them. I now feel a tremendous amount of guilt and so mean. I love him so much and would never want to hurt his feelings but I know it would. I suffer from severe anxiety and this is eating me alive thinking I’m a horrible person.
Anxiety (Including GAD)
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
its okay you were just joking! if he has a sense of humor hed probably think it was funny too
I feel so mean and messed up for it because yeah he does look a little different without it but I didn’t mean it in any type of mean or malicious way so my anxiety is eating me alive
i used to have a kind of boyfriend that was bald too. he lost his hair to cancer but he told me that he liked when i made jokes ab him cause it made him feel normal. i dont know if they have anything in common, but many people like to deal with things through humor
Hopefully it all goes well it sounds like it was a joke
You're fine. You were just joking around, and you know you didn't mean it. You can try and be more careful around your words, but it's alright to say things like that in the moment as long as you can at least recognize its wrong. If it really makes you feel better, you can tell your boyfriend you accidentally said that, as long as you go about telling him in the right way.
I feel like if I tell him it’ll make him insecure and I know that’s a touchy subject so I don’t want to upset him. But I almost feel bad not saying anything
To me, it sounds like you were just joking! Is your boyfriend insecure about being bald?
yes which is why it makes me feel bad
Whenever my brain keeps annoying me about stuff like that I just tell myself that it was nothing and hope that I forget about it and that they've forgotten about it
