This obviously does not do much to help one’s sense of autonomy, which is also a key element of healthy self-esteem. Confident women don’t show off or talk themselves up.
Confident people don’t need to tell the world how great they are.
They don’t attach their worth to what a guy thinks and, as a result, don’t feel stressed and anxious when a guy’s feelings are unclear.
Instead, they assume he likes them and are able to be present in the relationship and enjoy it without being weighed down by fears and doubts. Confident people realize if a relationship falls apart it’s because it wasn’t right, not because they did something wrong.
If you don’t feel good about yourself, you will never truly believe that someone else can love you and you will constantly be on the lookout for the other shoe to drop, for the guy you care about to leave, thus validating the fact that you are unworthy of love.
Poor self-worth is what traps us in bad relationships, what sabotages new relationships, and what causes us to feel so devastated and broken when a relationship ends.
Healthy self-esteem is a prerequisite for healthy relationships.
From my personal experiences, and my years spent writing about relationships, I’ve learned that poor self-esteem is the number one cause of unhealthy relationships, as well as the top relationship killer.
Confident women don’t analyze if he likes them – they assume he does.
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.
