Signs of Insecurity and How to Overcome Them

Everyone has signs of insecurity: it's a piece of the human experience. However, insecurity can be at the root of relationship issues. There are ways to move past relationship issues, insecurities and other issues that plague you and your loved one. It will take time, dedication to the issues and honesty, but you and your loved one can overcome your problems if you work together.

If you think that insecurities are ruining your relationship, talk to your loved one. Communication is integral during a time like this, and the two of you need to be as honest as possible with one another.

Jealousy is one of the biggest signs of insecurity, and if you, your loved one or both of you is constantly jealous, it could be a sign that the two of you need to talk and figure out a solution. At the end of the day, each of you has to learn to trust the other. You may feel insecure about losing your loved one, but if you don't trust them, your relationship can't grow because you will always question what they do and say.

If you feel jealous or insecure because of past relationships, bring this up with your partner. Let them know what your triggers are and learn to talk not only about your own relationship but also your past relationships.

Communication problems in relationships are another sign of insecurities and something you'll need to work on. If either of you is passive aggressive or refuses to bring up or discuss problems, then nothing can get better for you or for the relationship. Insecurities are based in fear, and the only way to work out these fears is to confront them with the support of a loved one.

Lastly, if you and your loved one still seem to be dealing with the same issues and problems, consider couples counseling. This could save your relationship at the end of the day.
