This is What Happens When Your Partner is Insecure or Mistrusting
In this post I want to address something that is one the most common reasons why someone starts feeling lost in a relationship.
And it actually has nothing to do with you, but everything with your partner.
One of the biggest reasons why people start to feel less confident, independent and start to lose sight of their individual dreams and aspirations is having an insecure of mistrusting partner.
A mistrusting or insecure partner often can’t help but feel the need to be in control.
Although they may love you and trust you deep down, they often unknowingly end up allowing their insecurities to pollute the precious sense of trust that loving relationships should have.
And they may even find themselves acting selfishly as a means to staying in control.
For example, they might knowingly or unknowingly do the following things…
- Want to know where you are at every moment.
- Seek constant affirmation from you and ask the same questions over and over again (Do you still love me? Do you really think I’m attractive? Did you flirt with him/her?)
- Make you feel bad when you want to hang out with friends because it makes them feel uncomfortable or insecure.
- Make you feel guilty when you go to certain places that make them feel uncomfortable – such as parties or nightclubs.
- Questions you after they have been out (e.g. Did anybody flirt with you? Did you flirt with anybody? Who were you with?)
It can be confusing when you are in a relationship with someone who is insecure or mistrusting.
On the one hand, you love them very much and you know that they love you too. However, deep down you can’t help but feel like it’s weighing you down, taking away your self-confidence, sense of self, that easy-goingness you once had, your ability to make your own decisions and your ‘sparkle’.
And after a while, you may start to get into a lifestyle where you find that you are working around your partner’s insecurities in order to keep them happy.
