When trust is broken for a couple, it can be tough to recover. Just one issue of infidelity or mistrust can plague an otherwise healthy relationship. Sometimes, however, your partner's issues have nothing to do with you and more to do with their own feelings of anxiety. If you suspect that your partner lacks confidence in themselves or your relationship, you should know the signs your partner is feeling insecure.
Fishing for compliments, wanting to keep you away from acquaintances, and even putting you down, are just a few of the signs that your partner is dealing with some relationship insecurity. Although it may seem innocent or even flattering at first, this kind of behavior can spell trouble for your relationship in the long run.
If your partner is insecure, you should do your best to be a supportive companion and let your partner know how much they are appreciated, as Women's Health advised. That positive feedback can help quell some of the feelings of apprehension and help establish confidence in your relationship.
And although you may want to do everything you can to help ease your partner's anxiety, don't go out of your way to change your lifestyle, as Psychology Today suggested. If you do, you are taking responsibility for your partner's insecurities. No matter what they may be telling you, it's more than likely that those feelings of insecurity were there long before you entered the picture.
