Low self-esteem is deadly when it comes to relationships.
Insecurities and a lack of confidence can lead to a person overwhelming their partner and turning a relationship that started off harmonious into a living hell.
Specifically, when you think that your relationship is going to fail, you’re actually laying the foundation for this outcome to occur. In fact, because of a lack of confidence, you may find yourself wanting to spend every waking moment with your partner because you’re constantly worrying that he or she’s going to break up with you.
However, if you turn into a person who acts in a clingy way, the irony is that this behavior will actually push your partner farther away.5. Additionally, having low self-esteem can impact your relationship with your partner by causing you to consistently seek reassurance from him or her.
Unfortunately, it’s not uncommon to struggle with a poor self-image, and you may find yourself dealing with feelings of doubt, distrust and even despair.
That’s why I highly recommend that you stay away from dating women with low self-esteem, unless they are working on improving themselves.
Not knowing your self-worth and being naive about relationships is a recipe for heartache.
When a man would express interest in me, I would automatically assume that we would be in a relationship. I didn’t think they would lie or take advantage of me because, quite frankly, I didn’t know any better. I dreamed of having a relationship but didn’t know anything about the dating game. I was too kind because I assumed they were deserving.
My own low self-esteem came from being bullied and never having a relationship throughout my teenage and young adult years.
The first things I heard about myself from my peers was that I was fat and ugly, so I believed it.
