Insecurity is something that we’ve all experienced at one time or another in our life. However, insecurity can often create many challenges and obstacles in a relationship. This is why it’s crucial that you find ways that’ll make you feel more secure in the relationship in order to have the happy and healthy relationship you deserve.
Take a break from scheduling your follow-up appointment with ThriveMD, and let’s look at some advice on how to stop being so insecure in a relationship.
Talk With Your Partner
First and foremost, it’s important that you open up about your insecurities with your partner. While you might be embarrassed to do so, if you have a healthy partner who truly loves and cares for you, they’ll want to know how you’re feeling.
If you have insecurities without discussing them with your partner, they could manifest in ways that could damage the relationship. This could present as trust issues and jealousy which may cause you to lash out or accuse your partner of doing things they aren’t. If you’re honest with your partner, they can help you move past your insecurities and build more trust in yourself and the relationship.
Insecurities stem from many things, and one of those is that you don’t love yourself as much as you should. There’s something inside of you that feels like you aren’t good enough. This is exactly why it’s crucial that you practice self-love when you’re working to become more secure with yourself and the relationship.
Self-love can be as simple as reciting positive daily affirmations or journaling qualities that you like about yourself. When you gift yourself with the space, time, and attention you deserve to build this healthy relationship with yourself, you’re working to find more security and comfort within yourself.
Accept You Don’t Have Control Over Everything
Insecurities are often anxiety that we’ll lose something because of who we are or what we lack. We feel that if we were prettier, smarter, funnier, stronger, thinner, or curvier that we wouldn’t have to worry about losing our partner. What’s important to keep in mind is that we have no control over what our partners will do.
As hard as it may be to accept that a partner might cheat on you, there’s nothing about your appearance or intelligence that can change that if that’s who they are. You can’t control how other people behave. What you can control, is how you feel about yourself and who you choose to have as a partner. You want to find a partner whom you can trust and know that they are with you because of who you are.
Let Go of The Past
Do you know where you’re insecurities stemmed from? Most of the time, we become insecure because of something that happened in our past. Maybe we were bullied as a child or perhaps someone cheated on us, and now we carry those experiences to our present day.
It’s important that you work to let go of your past in order to build a healthier relationship with yourself and your partner.
