Tips for Handling Insecurities in a New Relationship

Sep 13, 2008
Any new relationship can be full of new things to become accustomed to. If you've been recently divorced or gotten out of a long relationship, it can be easy to feel very insecure. You're with someone completely new and different and you're not sure what they are thinking or how they are feeling. Below you will find some important tips for handling insecurities in a new relationship.

Remember That It Is Not Just New to You -

One of the most important things you can remember to help you get over your insecurities is that you're not the only one feeling them. Chances are, your new sweetheart is feeling pretty insecure as well. Naturally, you would probably think that they have nothing to be insecure about. Well, this is probably what they're thinking about you as well. Remember that you're not the only one feeling insecure at this moment - everyone does in new relationships. It makes things easier when you realize that it's a new ballgame for the other person as well.

Be Yourself -

You've most likely heard this before, but it's a very important point of advice. When you let your true colors shine through and be yourself, you are being honest with your new partner. This allows them the chance to see you for who you really are. If they don't like it - then why would you want to be with them anyway? If they are really the one for you, they will like you for who you are. So, remember to be yourself when you are with your new sweetheart and allow them to feel comfortable enough to be themselves.

Don't Over-Analyze -

Many times, when we are feeling insecure about something, we think and think and analyze it until we've made a tiny issue into a huge issue. It's sort of like picking at a small cut until it becomes infected! Don't allow yourself to think too much. After all, relationships and love are not logical - they are emotional. Simply allow yourself to go with the flow and take it one moment at a time. Sure - there are things that you will always be insecure about, but it's who you are. Why let it bug you to death? Don't over-analyze things and you will be fine!

New relationships are tough and sometimes pretty scary. By looking at the tips and guidance above, you can get past the small things like insecurities and move on with the great things - like your new partner! Good luck and go get 'em tiger!
