      Mindfulness meditation helps me, along with therapy. I also find it helpful to acknowledge what happened out loud to my partner. "I'm sorry about ____. I'm struggling to manage my anxiety right now and it's causing me to lash out. I'm trying to find ways to manage it. Thank you for being patient with me and loving me through it."

      Recognizing you have anxiety is a great step towards managing your emotions. I hope you find balance. It helps me to talk a walk, a bath, long shower, craft, garden, therapy, and medication. Anxiety is usually accompanied with depression so know that I am rooting for you.

      Usually anxiety leads to more anger in some people, exercising can be a great way to direct some of that pent up anger into something safe and productive towards your mental health. If you feel like you’re getting angry towards your bf or friends let them know you’re not feeling good and take a break. Scream into your pillow, punch a punching bag, running on a treadmill until you aren’t angry anymore , lift weights… all these things can decrease anger.

        @BobateaMaster19 take a break before you break the relationship- before you yell tell them you need a minute to calm down and go ground (name out loud 5 things you see, feel better? No do it again but describe them). Anxiety usually comes from the what if game or perceived danger - it take an enormous effort to stop in the moment. Be compassionate with yourself and keep trying. Maybe when you’re not angry talk with your boyfriend and your best friend and explain what’s going on. It doesn’t excuse your anger splashing off onto them but it maybe gives a why and some cushion
