Low Self-Esteem Can Affect Your Love Life In These 4 Ways

Titilayo Ilori

Dealing with low self-esteem can make you miserable. Low self-esteem can weaken your relationship if it is not dealt with on time.

So, it is best to know how low self-esteem affects your relationship. This is important because you want to know how to face the problem once and for all. Here are four ways your relationship can be affected if you have a low self-esteem.

1. Boring love life

People who suffer from a low self-esteem find it extremely hard to have an intimate relationship with their partners. They draw back simply because they don't know how to go about expressing emotions or because they are shy. You should never feel inferior, as this will give your partner an edge over you.

2. Dependence on your partner for self-worth

People with low self-esteem depend on their partner for happiness, but the sad thing is, your partner can use this against you knowing fully well that your happiness lies in his or her hands.

3.  Fights and disagreements

Some people with low self-esteem turn out to be jealous and temperamental and this could result in fights and disagreements that would be unhealthy for your relationship. You should learn to control your temper so you don’t miss out on a great relationship.

4. Worry and anxiety

People with low self-esteem worry over things that are not worth worrying over. They worry about the things that can’t be changed or what they don't have control over. This can also have a negative effect on your relationship.
