If your loved one has anxiety, don’t guilt them. Most mental health issues aren’t caused by sinful decisions a person has made. Being anxious isn’t the result of a sin your loved one committed. Rather, they are specific manifestations of the universal human fall into sin and misery. They are signs of the same broken, sinful nature that abides in each of us. Let your loved one know you still respect and admire them. They need to know your good opinion of them hasn’t changed. Listen to them patiently. You may hear the same, or similar, story over and over and over. Don’t roll your eyes. Don’t let exasperation slip out, even if you feel it once in a while. Instead, listen actively, and patiently. Ask gentle questions, not to fix it but to hear it.
