No matter if it’s damage from a past relationship or past failures, it’s not uncommon for someone’s self-confidence to take a hit after a negative experience. Most people recover, but there are some men and women who carry those setbacks with them and in term end up lacking just a bit in the self-esteem department. If you’re dating someone who is insecure, you know just how challenging the relationship can be, but, don’t give up just yet! Here are 14 dos and don’ts to keep in mind while dating this type of person.

    Really??? I believe
    this article has many great suggestions in reference to the topic and the
    issues it aims to address; with the exception of one substantial principle. For
    starters, it is not okay to accommodate a certain level of insecurity within a
    relationship. This principle needs not to be overlooked an highly emphasized in
    the message that is being relayed with regard to individuals whom experience
    emotional, verbal, and physical abuse in relationships with partners who
    exhibit such behaviors and similar signs of insecurity.

    I think that the most sensible thing to do in such
    situations is to address the issue in itself with the other person exhibiting
    such behaviors. I mean, for the most part, everyone has insecurities. With that
    being said, is it fair to ‘walk around on egg shells’ and compensate for the
    lack of introspection from another? I don’t think so… I was once in a
    relationship with someone of the same caliber who exhibited a sabotaging level
    on insecurity in the past. After months of trying to console and accommodate this
    individual, I came to the conclusion that this individual needed to make some
    drastic emotional and spiritual changes to move forward with their life.

    What I am proposing is that expecting someone to make
    substantial changes and to be a better person by enabling them to deal with these
    issues and acknowledge that they need to be dealt, is utterly ridiculous.
    Relationships are difficult and extremely testing without these game changers.
    You cannot expect someone to take care of you and your issues if you do not
    take care of yourself. A spouse wants to feel like a spouse and not a therapist
    or a worse; a parent. So, while it’s good to give a little attention and
    understanding to these issues, its also good to balance it with tough love and
    encouragement to do better. That’s what a spouse is for.
