We often see ourselves as others see us. If we have low self-esteem, we can grow to dislike ourselves and not think that we deserve a fulfilling intimate relationship.

Keeping silent about the problems in your relationship can lead to much worse things in the future.

When women hide what they don’t like about their partner, they often feel resentful and angry in the relationship and can even cause harm to themselves or their partner.

We all know that communication is important in any close relationship, no matter how difficult it is.

The key is choosing appropriate communication styles such as asking questions and listening, which can help us feel closer with our partner.

Self-esteem and fear of rejection

Women with low self-esteem may resist addressing their concerns about their intimate relationships as they fear that it will lead to further rejection and feelings of inadequacy.

However, it is possible to overcome this problem by first acknowledging the fear of negative outcomes and evaluating the potential benefits of seeking help.

You need to realise that you deserve better and  that you will feel more confident about yourself, once you choose to take action by expressing your feelings and your needs.

“Kill the monster while it’s little.” (Tony Robbins)

The sooner you express your feelings in a respectful way, the easier it will be for both you and your partner to address the issues in a beneficial way for both of you.

When you take action and start expressing your needs on small issues, you will soon realise that you deserve better and will feel more confident about yourself. The more you do it, the more confidence you gain, and the more confidence you gain the more freedom you allow your partner to express his needs.

The terrible dilemma behind silence: 

Low self-esteem will lead to you sabotage your relationships.

Here is the dilemma:

On the one hand, you want peace avoiding discussions and rejection on the other hand you have a need to address important issues that are not aligned to your values.

Silence is not a solution.

Finding the courage to listen to your heart (or to your body) when things seem out of alignment, IS the solution.

Our lives are filled with the fear of rejection. We’re afraid that if we reach out to other people, they will not like us. We worry that even the slightest rejection could shatter our self-confidence and make us feel uncomfortable in our own skin.

Building self-esteem is the first step to becoming more attractive and gaining confidence in romantic relationships.

If you improve your self-esteem by following these simple steps, you’ll be more confident in your skin and better prepared for intimacy with your partners.

What about you, how do you deal with your fear of rejection?
