Are you haunted by insecurity in your relationship? Insecurity is like a ghostly apparition that's always hanging around haunting you at any opportunity. Do you see visions of yourself that donít look anything like you really look? Do you think your guy goes out of his way to make you question your self-worth and then acts like thereís something wrong with you when you try to talk to him about how you feel; or do you just feel insecure and question your own self-worth and blame that on him? Itís important to answer these questions honestly. There are so many things that can cause a relationship to go sour with or without your help, so do you really want to sabotage your relationship with insecurity if itís unreasonable? Do you allow ghosts from old relationships to begin to creep in and think that because they ended badly this relationship will too Ė and do you think that when things go wrong itís all your fault? It takes two to break up a relationship and two to keep one going.
Heís late. He didnít call. He used to tell me I looked nice all the time but now I donít think he even looks at me. There must be something wrong with me. Maybe I should just break up with him before he breaks up with me. Maybe he doesnít like my hair or the way I dress. Do any of these thoughts sound like the ones that keep rolling in your head? They may be figments of your imagination or they may be real but it's important to look at them realistically and not to let your insecurity cloud your viewpoints and decisions.
If these are some of the things that you keep thinking about your relationship maybe itís time for you to consider that it might not be something thatís wrong with you but something thatís wrong with him. Or perhaps thereís nothing wrong with either of you and youíre just going through a complicated or difficult time that somehow seems to translate in your mind to something being wrong with you. Are you insecure or are you unsure? Are you insecure about yourself or just unsure about the overall quality of your relationship? It's important to look at your insecurity issues with an open mind and open eyes.
If you think your insecurity is a problem in your relationship thatís something you can work on. Maybe itís time to embark on a personal journey Ė a journey to self-discovery to build your emotional security. Build your own self-esteem to minimize those ghosts of insecurity that are haunting you. Compliments are nice but donít wait for compliments from others to make you feel good about yourself. Each of us is a work in progress with a goal of becoming our best version of our authentic self. Work on building your self-esteem and you will find it easier and easier to chase away those ghosts of insecurity that are haunting you.
