  • I would try talking to him. If you are disconnected and feeling insucre then you need to explain this to him. He might not even realize that you are upset or bothered.

    Good Luck!

  • I know this sounds silly but why dont you try going and getting your haircut or your nails done....just do something to make you feel better about yourself. sometimes that will help me feel more secure then you try to get over the hurdle with the DH that night with just a little bit more confidence or feeling good about yourself. I dont think its a permanent fix but it might kick start a solution. GL

  • Talk to him about it, I'll bet he thinks you are awesome. Sometimes hearing hm say it is what snaps me out of it. My hubby and I make a point to compliment each other daily, you would be surpised at how much it helps! Start my complimenting him, and he will catch on. Make it real compliments, though, no fake stuff just looking for a return compliment.

  • I agree with doing something nice for yourself to help you self esteem, but also have a good lomg talk with your dh about how your feeling. Im sure everything will work out but you do need his support.

  • Do something for yourself that makes you feel happy. Then, talk to your husband and let him know what you're feeling and how he can help you feel better about yourself.

  • I tend to be insecure. It bites. It sucks. Its a reality for some. Ugh! But...after some counseling the only thing I've found to really work is to focus on myself. Do things I enjoy and take care of me. Make a list of things I enjoy and go down the list one by one. What ends up happening is that I become happy. I smile more and it attracts people to me. The attention helps me feel secure along with the knowledge that I can take care of myself. I honestly think secure people just have a better base of feelings of being loved and cared about. Insecurity. Comes from not having that base.

  • Then you need to talk to him about it. It's the only way you will get over it, is with talking to him and his help. Good luck.

  • why are you feeling this way? what has triggered that or have you always felt that way.
    i found that since i am a stay at home mom and don't contribute financially to the household that i have become very insecure in our relationship....but other then that i know who i am and what i can do and i feel good about these things.
    analyse by yourself what exactly it is that makes you feel this way? write it down...go over it step by step....if your husband contributes to that insecurity you should talk to him. good luck!!

  • How to feel better or more secure in your relationship or within yourself in general...... totally depends on "Why" you are feeling this way.

    One can not make smoething better, or fix it. If they do not know what's causing the issue to begin with. So, that's where you must start. Looking deep within yourself, and being totally honest with yourself (which is always a hard thing to do) as to why you are feeling the way you are. Once you do that, then you can actually start working to change how you feel, view things,etc..
