4 ways to stop INSECURITIES from ruining your relationship
Insecurities need to be stopped at once!
Insecurities are the biggest illusions that our own minds create for us. We all have gone through or are going through that stage where even the smallest of our flaws seem like such a big issue. We start to feel that everything that has gone wrong or is yet to go wrong happens because of them. These insecurities often create problems out of nowhere and relationships that were bound to last a lifetime get ruined. I have had my fair share of insecurities myself and I am slowly getting over them. It is a slow process, nothing will happen overnight but gradually you will get over these insecurities and you will be able to see a huge change in the way your partner is with you.
4. STOP THE GUESSING AND PREDICTING GAME
We are so driven by our own insecurities that we start thinking that everything and anything that happens is a consequence of that insecurity. If your partner doesn’t feel like going out, don’t assume it is because of you, they could have had a really bad day at work that drained their energy as well. We forget to keep a little for the benefit-of-doubt. We are so sold on our own insecurities that we don’t even think twice about the causes of a situation. We casually assume that everything happens because of the baseless insecurities that our minds have produced.
3. ADDRESS THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM, STOP AVOIDING
Facing your problems without fear will help you grow closer to your partner. The fear of conflict pushes us to avoid problems and to let them be until they become a whole lot bigger. Whereas, the right thing to do is that you address the problem so both of you can find clarity. If you keep on avoiding problems that are small and can still be sorted, they will start to pile up and eventually become a huge mess for you. So open up to your partner, so things can be solved. Soon, you will develop a trust level so strong that you can tell your partner anything that is on your mind.
2. STOP OBSESSING
One of the most popular insecurity is that your partner is cheating on you. Avoid the temptation to snoop your partner’s phone, Facebook messages, or email account. Have faith in yourself and trust in your partner. Your partner might not be cheating but you, constantly expecting them to cheat, will surely push them. Allow yourself and your partner to have peace. You, constantly obsessing about a thing even though true or not, will start to affect the relationship in the most negative of ways.
1. RIGHTS, WRONGS and MAYBE
There are no completely right and completely wrong sins in this world. But we, very conveniently, forget this whenever we have a fight. At that moment, you just want to prove your point and your partner tries doing the same. Remember, there could always be grey areas in any argument. Allow your partner to present their side of the story and then you do it. Try and reach your partner halfway the bridge of your relationship. It is always better to listen to all sides before drawing a conclusion.
