Are You Haunted by Insecurity in your Relationship
He’s late. He didn’t call. He used to tell me I looked nice all the time but now I don’t 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 doesn’t 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 it’s time for you to consider that it might not be something that’s wrong with you but something that’s wrong with him. Or perhaps there’s nothing wrong with either of you and you’re 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 that’s something you can work on. Maybe it’s time to embark on a personal journey – 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 don’t 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.
