How To Deal With Insecurity In A Relationship

1. Take control of your thought life and focus on the truth. A lot of people become insecure because they imagine things falling apart. Stop imaging your partner being untrue to you or becoming interested in someone else. Don’t let your fears create a false reality.

2. Let the relationship follow its own course. Allow yourself and your partner to simply be yourselves and to only commit what each is ready to commit. A good relationship is based on understanding and respect.

3. Don’t give into the urge to snoop around. Don’t start acting in ways that make you seem suspicious or lacking in trust. That will only undermine your relationship.

4. Focus on being positive. Instead of using your energy on feeling insecure, putting yourself down or thinking of “what ifs”, try and think about the happy, good experiences you’ve shared together.

5. Don’t compare yourself with others. We all have different strengths, personalities and gifts. Be proud of who you are – you are special and unique.

6. Don’t compare this relationship to previous relationships. Even when things have gone wrong in a past relationship, it doesn’t mean this partner is going to treat you badly. It’s a new chapter now – give your partner a fair chance.

Be Patient With Love

People are in such a rush to fall in love. We base our relationships off a physical connection rather than an emotional one. We force ourselves to like someone so we won’t be alone. We settle for those that don’t quite satisfy our wants and needs.
Stop looking for love, let it find you.
The best things in life are worth waiting for and love is definitely one of them. Sometimes it happens over night and sometimes it takes years but you have to have patience. Learn to love yourself so that you don’t feel like you need to be loved by someone else in order to feel complete.
