1. You violate your partner’s sense of privacy.
You start snooping and browsing through your partner’s phone and computer. You try to search your partner’s inbox for any signs of infidelity or cheating. You want to know if your partner is doing anything fishy behind your back and so you resort to violating their privacy because you’re too afraid to bring it up in a real conversation.
2. You rage out on your partner for no reason.
When you are feeling insecure, it can often lead you to feel overly emotional for no reason at all. Sometimes, emotions and feelings will conjure themselves out of nowhere and you won’t be able to explain it. You just end up lashing out at your partner even though they did nothing wrong.
3. You develop a reluctance to say sorry.
Your insecurity is always telling you that your partner is doing something wrong behind your back. And so because of this insecurity, you will think that your partner is always at fault and you will develop this irrational reluctance to apologize whenever you are the one who screws up.
4. You accuse your partner’s friends of being something more.
You will start to invent irrational stories out of thin air. Your insecurities will force you to believe without reason that your partner’s friends are more than just friends. You will start to manufacture fake narratives in your head because of your insecurity.
5. You feel like you have to force yourself to become the ideal person for your partner to be with.
You will never feel like you are never enough. You always think that your partner wants to be with someone else, and so you try your best to become more like a person who doesn’t even exist. You are essentially becoming jealous of an imaginary person.
6. You keep wondering if your partner wants you to change.
In relation to the previous entry, you will never feel like you will ever be enough for your partner. You will think that your partner is secretly wanting you to change into someone else and so you can never really feel comfortable with being who you are.
7. You seek validation and love from other people.
You are so insecure and you can never look to yourself for the confidence that you need. Your self-esteem is dependent on the validation of other people. Your sense of self-worth is dependent on how other people see you.
8. You constantly ask your partner if they love you.
You will never believe it. You will always be asking your partner if you are loved but even then, it’s never going to register in your mind.
