Your significant other treats you wonderfully. They go above and beyond to make you happy. They are willing to do whatever it takes to put a smile on your face.
But even after all the energy they invest, you still have doubts about the future of your relationship.
Well, guess what. This isn’t because your partner is wrong for you. It has nothing to do with the stability of your bond.
This is because you are doubting yourself.
The deep-seated self-doubts you have are infecting the way you perceive your relationship. Your personal insecurities are bringing the worst in you. They are making you feel as if you are not good enough for your partner. There is a little voice in your head that tells you you don’t have what it takes to be a relationship-material. It tries to convince you that you don’t deserve to be loved.
While all of your other half’s romantic gestures are proving their genuine affection towards you, you are still wondering whether their love will last. This constant disbelief you are struggling with makes you feel powerless. Your overthinking mind suffocates you with coming up with different scenarios where your heart gets broken once again. And when you fall into the trap of your own mind, you keep forgetting how much you and your partner love each other and how strong your connection is.
You forget that you are all over one another. You fail to acknowledge that you sincerely appreciate each other’s presence. This eventually costs you severe damages to your self-awareness. Not recognizing the respect, devotion, and tenderness you and your significant other have for one another inflicts uncertainty in your fragile mind.
Eventually, you project this uncertainty on your partner.
You assume that they see you the same way you see yourself. But they don’t.
In fact, your partner admires you. They see you as an inspiring human being with an exceptional influence over the people in your life. They find your emotional intelligence alluring. Your undeniable beauty is the least attractive thing they recognize in you. If only you could see their authenticity.
You have been hurt before. You have been through many heartbreaks. All that pain incited trust issues in you that are still tearing up your soul. You are worried that history will sooner or later repeat itself, so you can’t see the goodness in your loved one’s heart.
It all comes down to one simple but brutally honest realization.
You are not doubting your relationship. You are doubting yourself.
This negative mindset has turned you into your worst enemy. It has made you belittle your self-worth.
But instead of being your worst enemy, try being your best friend for a change.
You are good enough. Your partner accepts and loves you for who you are. Once you realize that, you will finally be able to replace self-doubt with self-love.
