Self esteem and dating
Confident people don’t abandon parts of themselves in order to have a relationship.
They bring their fully formed self into the relationship and if the guy wants something else, or something more, they leave.
They act in accordance with who they are and what they believe and don’t cater their behavior for a guy, or do things solely to keep him interested and happy.
When you have weak boundaries, you may sell yourself out in a relationship and put up with treatment that you know is objectively unacceptable.
They know that they are good, competent, and lovable and trust that the right person for them will see this.
When a girl is insecure, however, and a guy leaves, she spirals.
She may obsess, analyze, and replay every interaction in an attempt to uncover what she did wrong. Healthy personal boundaries and high self-esteem go hand in hand.
Self-esteem isn’t an essential need like food or water, but it’s a supplement that can either dramatically improve your life, or keep you stunted and unfulfilled.
The fact is, you can only let in as much love from the outside as you feel on the inside.
People with low self-esteem don’t trust their judgment, don’t trust their gut instincts, and are afraid of being wrong.
