10 Things Women Who Value Their Self-Worth Do Differently In Relationships

4. Confident women trust themselves and the decisions they make.

A key component of having high self-esteem is trusting yourself to make the right choices while also realizing you are well equipped to cope should things go awry. People with high self-esteem don’t constantly question their actions and feel conflicted about the right thing to say or do. They act on how they feel and are comfortable being their true, authentic selves.

People with low self-esteem don’t trust their judgment, don’t trust their gut instincts, and are afraid of being wrong. As a result, they either live their lives in a constant state of anxiety, or they look to others to guide them along the right path. This obviously does not do much to help one’s sense of autonomy, which is also a key element of healthy self-esteem.

5. Confident women don’t show off or talk themselves up.

Confident people don’t need to tell the world how great they are. Only insecure people secretly feel that they are unworthy and feel the need to hide this by bragging about their achievements or talking themselves up.

A woman who reveals herself gradually, carefully peeling back the layers over time, is significantly more attractive than a woman who lays it all out there. When you feel that you are worthy, you don’t need to tell people…they just know. A big mistake insecure women make in the early stages of dating is selling themselves to a guy. This can be completely innocent, but it comes from a deeper sense of insecurity and inadequacy. Confident women don’t need to sell themselves; rather, they use dating as a means to determine which guys are worthy of their time and affection.

6. Confident women accept responsibility.

Confident people accept responsibility for their actions and emotions. They don’t blame or shame their partners if they feel unhappy and don’t accuse him of “making” them feel a certain way. They don’t blame men for being jerks and they don’t view themselves as the victims of other people and circumstances.

They realize that their time is their responsibility. As a result, they don’t wait around in dead-end relationships, hoping something will magically change. And they don’t blame their exes for wasting their time. They take responsibility for their choices, both good and bad, and use mistakes as opportunities to grow and become even better.

This Is The Only Relationship Advice You’ll Ever Need…

The fact is, if you don’t feel good about yourself, nothing he does will ever be enough. If you don’t truly believe you’re worthy of love, you will never believe someone can love you.

    Although I am not a woman, I can relate to setting healthy boundaries. I have been hounded by people, who wanted my time, but it wasn’t what I wanted to do, so despite that they were visiting me from far away or that our mutual friend had died, I just had to stay away no matter how f-ed up that was. I just wanted my life back. In both cases, it was tantamount to female stalking. I told them “no” a thousand times.

    This issue applies to both sexes. More than this, as people we have to start paying more attention to ourselves. We have a responsibility to get and do exactly what we want and I only mean this as it concerns our true passions. If our passions are a bit out of sink with what society values, as with doctors, engineers, lawyers and the like and say was are poets, for example, we have to own up and get jobs that support our true loves and fulfill our dreams: William Carlos Williams was a doctor while writing when he wasn’t working. If we still don’t know what we want, there are hints in everything we do. Do each one as it makes itself known.

    It took me 56 years to finally narrow my loves down to two things, writing and philosophy, and maybe law. I was stumbling in the background for too long trying to decide. I have to do both and you have to do everything that burns inside of you because that is who you are and why you are here.

    For women and men, stop thinking that you have to have children before your clock stops ticking or maybe that’s what you are here for, but imagine taking a couple generations off. Our world doesn’t need another child. We’ve got plenty. We need to stop passing our ambitions off to our children. They’ve got their own purpose. We are supposed to fulfill ours. Until you have arrived and you are certain and financially secure in that arrival, keep living for you. When you are happy, it it contagious. It sets the tone for the rest of us.

    My sister and I were raised by a single mother, who inevitably had to give up her career. She could never go back because the field had changed. She was lucky and made it through the morass of having no marketable skills and my father, who died having left her enough to live on until she got married again. My sister and I got money until we were 21. How many of you have that? Life is tough. Secure your life before you can help others. Draw lots of lines.

    Women stop thinking a man is going to help you. The rich-poor gap is so wide almost everyone is falling through the crack. No one is safe. My mother, as I said, came up empty as time went on. She never built her social security because it is based on taxes from wages. You have to work to get it and you have to work your entire life. We still have social security. Imagine how fragile it is? It is only one Republican president away from potential dismantling. They want to take that money and play the stock market and guess who is going to benefit?! Not you.

    For gosh sake start to value yourself. It is your life. Stop letting other people live it for you, otherwise you are going to die with profound regret and you are going to be bitter. We don’t need anymore bitterness. Take responsibility!
