A study suggests that in romantic relationships, the partner with low self-esteem resists addressing problems. Do you feel it is true?
Megan McCarthy from the University of Waterloo in Canada says that low self-esteem can drive people towards defensive, self-protective behaviour, such as avoiding confrontation.
Here are a few basic problems, which Khurki feel, people with low self-esteem suffer from:
Your partner does not engage in an open and honest conversation about your relationship? It may not be because they do not care but because they feel insecure and are afraid of being hurt.
People with low self esteem are more likely stay in unhappy relationships, as they don’t want the relationship to end. But this could do more harm than good.
Sufferers of low self-esteem do not tend to complain about their relationships with their partners because they fear rejection.
Researchers found that people with a more negative self-concept often have doubts and anxieties about the extent to which other people care about them.
