Your partner fell in love with you. All of you! Your imperfections and flaws included…
At one point they looked into your eyes and thought “Yup, I want to spend the rest of my life with THIS person. You. Are. The. One”
When your significant other compliments you and tells you how handsome/beautiful you are, believe them! Let yourself accept the compliment and feel the affection of their words pour over you.
As an individual and a normal human being in today’s society, it’s easy to be harsh and self-critical. You start to focus in on your mistakes and ‘flaws’ rather than your accomplishments and special attributes. This can lead you down a spiraling path of self-doubt, negativity and even depression! All of which can unfortunately spill into and poorly affect both your relationship and family dynamics.
But your partner doesn’t see these flaws that you see.
They see your kindness, your happiness, your love, care, nurture, and patience. If you listen to your partner when they tell you this, and choose to believe them, you allow yourself to become an even better version of yourself than before. You let them lift you up, leave the cloud of self-doubt and to start feeling optimistic!
Learning to love YOU and learning to see all the beautiful attributes that led your partner to fall in love with you will allow you to build up self-confidence; which will then translate to success in both your relationship and your professional life.
“You come to love not by finding the perfect person, but by seeing an imperfect person perfectly.” - Sam Keen
