Poor self-worth is what traps us in bad relationships, what sabotages new relationships, and what causes us to feel so devastated and broken when a relationship ends.Self-esteem doesn’t come from blowing kisses to your reflection in the mirror or repeating “I love myself” over and over. It’s Feeling guilty or embarrassed about who you are, deep in your core. Damaged or flawed in fundamental, irreversible ways. Your man may never admit it outright – but he wishes he were someone else. We’re stuck in this skin forever, and the hate, the self-pity – it gets us nowhere. I sought validation and distraction in women, alcohol and career moves. Low self-esteem is easy to explain yet hard to understand for some.You’re content that you have a relationship even if it’s not with the right guy. You don’t know your own worth so you’re unlikely to convince anyone else of it either, which is a shame.
There’s no algorithm for being a successful dater but there is one thing you have to have before a successful relationship: self-confidence.
It takes time and it takes work and it isn’t always easy.
Everyone’s path will be different, but no matter what, having a picture of what high self-esteem looks like, and how it can play out in relationships, is helpful and can help reveal the areas you may need to work on.
If you don’t believe that you’re worthy of love, there’s no way you can find it. People get rejected every single day, and you know what?
You allow your fear of rejection to dictate your love life. Their world doesn’t end because one person’s opinion of you doesn’t matter.
