Why Do I Seek Reassurance In My Relationship?
UPDATE: Colleen contributed to the article: Why Do I Need Constant Reassurance in a Relationship? (50+ Reasons From Experts), written by Aerielle Alejandro, for UpJourney
Constant reassurance is something that we all need from time to time. It’s not just women who need it, but men too. We all have times when we feel like we’re going crazy or that everything is falling apart around us. When this happens, we can become very unsure about ourselves and our relationships.
And when it comes to our romantic relationships, a lot of us struggle with insecurity. We all want to have partners that can do life together, feel safe around, and loved. Yet, often we worry about whether we are good enough for someone else, whether we are being treated fairly, whether our partners think we’re attractive, and if our partners still love us. Sometimes, we just need constant reassurance that our partners care about us.
The need for reassurance isn’t always because of problems in a relationship. Some people may feel insecure simply because they don’t know how to handle rejection well. They might fear that if they do reject someone, the person won’t take it well, or they’ll somehow prove themselves unworthy. Or maybe they’ve had a previous relationship where things didn’t work out and they fear they’ll never find another one again.
Whatever the reason, if you’re feeling insecure in your relationship, you may need to work on developing better ways to deal with rejection. But the real issue here is that you’re probably struggling with low self-confidence and poor self-worth. If you’re having trouble trusting others, you may be wondering why you can’t trust your partner. And if you’re worried that your partner doesn’t see you as attractive anymore, you may wonder why he/she continues to date you.
You could also try reading books or articles on self-esteem and confidence building. These resources will teach you how to develop more positive beliefs about yourself and improve your self-image. You may also benefit from reading books on communication skills. This type of training teaches you how to communicate effectively with other people. By learning new techniques, you’ll learn to express your feelings clearly and accurately so that your partner understands what’s really bothering you.
If you’re still looking for answers to these questions, then you should consider seeking professional help. A therapist can help you identify the underlying issues behind your insecurity and provide solutions that will allow you to move forward in your relationship.
