The Importance of Self-Esteem in Happy Relationships

It’s so important if you want to attract or keep a romantic relationship to build up your own self-confidence, self-esteem and self-worth.

Do you feel like you can’t trust yourself, your own decisions or perhaps some days you don’t like yourself very much?

The Rules (TR) talks about a concept called being a ‘Creature Unlike Any Other’ (CUAO)- that you are enough just as you are.

It’s great if you follow TR and allow the man to pursue you and you can fake it ’til you make it in the ‘CUAO’ department to begin with.  However, in my opinion if you want to keep a relationship for the long-term and have a happy fulling relationship then it’s essential to work on being a CUAO and developing your self-confidence, self-esteem and self-worth if these are issues that you struggle with.

Do you always ask others for advice not trusting your own opinon?  Not know what you want and be indecisive?  And look for others to give you the confidence you seek?  The feeling you are seeking comes from within.

It helps to look after to yourself, physically, emotionally and mentally.  It helps to take care of how you look – but more so to please yourself and make you feel good about you.

When you feel good about yourself then this emanates from you and is a very attractive quality.  You may know people who aren’t conventionally attractive but they have something about them as having self-confidence, self-esteem, self-worth and self-knowledge is very powerful.

This isn’t about being egotistical either, but about being able to have the compassion, love and forgiveness for yourself (that you may have for others).

Self-help, The Rules and therapy are all good avenues to explore.

By learning to love yourself you’ll be able to open your heart and give more.  You will be less needy and desperate and able to offer your significant other support, love and have a much healthier and happy relationship.
