10 Ways to Overcome Insecurity in Your Relationships

Being understanding about the nature of men does not mean ignoring things that should make you jealous. Things like talking to another woman without your knowledge, talking to an old girlfriend on Facebook and flirting with his secretary should raise your ire.

#5. Don’t Sell Yourself Short
If every boyfriend you ever had has turned out to be a jerk, you might need to look in the mirror for the real problem. If you are insecure about your attractiveness and your value, you are likely to settle for less than you deserve.

Stop devaluing yourself. You deserve a good relationship, and life is too short to stay with a creep. There are plenty of great guys out there. Your job is to find one.

#6. Don’t Be Afraid of Being Alone
Some women are so afraid of being single that they put up with crap just to keep the guy around. There is something worse than not having a boyfriend – having a boyfriend who does not value you and see your true worth.

Never be afraid of being single. Even if you kick that no-good boyfriend to the curb, you will still have plenty of friends and a family that loves you.

#7. Give Yourself Space to Breathe
No matter how much you love your boyfriend, you do not have to be joined at the hip. Give yourself and your partner space to breathe and enjoy their favorite activities. If he wants a night out with his friends, let him enjoy the freedom. You can always schedule a girls’ night out or enjoy a relaxing bubble bath at home.

#8. Embrace Your Imperfections
No one is perfect, not even people who are sure they are. The sooner you embrace your imperfections the sooner you can let go of your insecurities. You may not like your nose, but others (including your boyfriend) may find it charming. No one is perfect, and obsessing over things you cannot change will only leave you insecure and miserable.
