      Spent the day panicking over something that happened

      I felt butterflies when talking to someone who is like family to me. My brain immediately said ‘no.’, I freaked out and I felt awkward.

      like I was panicking – if I had a crush on that person, it would be bad. I don’t have a crush on them. I just think they’re cool and can’t picture myself with them AT ALL, it’s gross

      I told my partner after hours of ruminating thoughts. And they are now upset with me

      I’m so stressed and feel like a horrible person


        Without knowing more details I can’t 100 percent reassure you but I does sound like something quite common

        Did you speak to your partner about of it partly because you wanted reassurance or to get it off your mind

        Might be something that seems silly in a few weeks
