Personal insecurities

Insecurities about not being pretty enough or thin enough or good enough for your partner can manifest to your partner in many ways. They might think you’re always begging for a compliment, wanting them to reassure you constantly that they think you are pretty or thin or perfect the way you are. Some people consider this a sign of neediness, which can often push them away.

Relationship/partner insecurities

Another damaging aspect of insecurity is believing that your partner must be up to no good when they’re not spending time with you. Your mind paints vivid images about them seeing other people the moment you’re out of their sight because somewhere in there you don’t feel as though you’re good enough for them.

Mending the Rift

Most likely your partner was attracted to you because you seemed like a fun, happy, independent person. When you begin to change and try to cling to them to make sure they’re not going to leave you, this can often make them feel differently about you. Suddenly, you’re not that fun, happy independent person they thought they were falling in love with. They’ll begin to question the whole relationship.
