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.
Having high self-esteem doesn’t guarantee a happy relationship, but it does equip you with the skills to identify what you want and what you deserve to have, and the strength to walk away if something falls short.
Here are ten things people with high self-esteem do differently in their relationships:
1. Confident women know they are worthy of love
These women know they are worthy of love. They know they are already amazing just as they are. They have accepted themselves as they are right now. Not as they wish they were or think they ought to be. Women who are confident and know their worth, demand to be loved and respected by a partner who embraces her entirely.
2. They set healthy boundaries
Having healthy boundaries; means you prioritise your needs and your emotions. Confident women know what to accept and are not pressured or guilted into doing things they do not want to do. They are faithful to their values and beliefs. They do not do things that go against themselves to keep a guy happy or interested.
3. Confident women trust their decisions and themselves
They trust their decisions and judgements. They act on how they feel and are comfortable being authentic.
4. Confident women accept responsibility for their actions
They take responsibility for their actions and emotions. Both for the bad and good choices they make along the way. They use mistakes as an opportunity to learn, grow and become better people.
5. Confident women don’t stay in a bad relationship
When you value, respect and love yourself, you will weed out anyone that doesn’t see you the same way. Confident people will not remain in a relationship that does not value, respect and accept them as an individual. They will work at improving the relationship, but if that does not work, they are not afraid to walk away from a bad relationship.
6. Confident women choose wisely
Confident people choose their partners with their head and heart. They will ensure they are compatible with someone before they invest themselves and get too involved.
