Everyone has their own flaws and imperfections they are insecure about. But chronic insecurity can prevent you from going after your dreams or drive your romantic partner away. When people are insecure in a relationship, they often blame their partner for the jealousy and suspicion that they feel. But, insecurity is something formed from within.
It stems from your early childhood when you might have experienced insecure attachment to your parents or from the constant rejection, judgment, and dismissal of your feelings. People who are often insecure in their relationships feel threatened from irrational fears and thoughts that cause them to believe they aren’t good enough for their partner, that their partner will leave them for someone better, or that they themselves won’t find anyone better. Psych2Go wants to lift those negative thoughts from your shoulders and shares with you 5 ways to cope with insecurity in your relationship:
1. Know and value your own self-worth.
Don’t get so caught up in what you lack. Instead, focus on the qualities and traits that you do have. Perhaps it’s your body weight or your skin condition that makes you insecure. Don’t let those aspects be the only factors that define who you are. Focus on the quirks that make you unique and draws other people towards you.
Think about the personality traits you possess that sets you apart from the crowd. It might be your great sense of humor, your kindness, or your endless ability to see the best in others. There’s a reason your partner chose to be with you in a relationship. Don’t forget to value who you are.
