Insecurity watch

    • Thread Starter

    Like everybody I get insecure from time to time, but sometimes I get insecure about myself like how I look or if i'm doing well enough academically, or when my boyfriend goes out, especially if there are pretty girls there. I trust him fully, and he knows that, yet sometimes I just feel a little insecure that other girls might find him attractive etc. It's not a major problem, I get over it and tell myself I'm being silly which is always the case. I've been thinking as to why I would do this and suddenly it came to my mind that I was never really surrounded by many men when I was growing up. One of my brothers moved out when I was young, the other brother I never even met, and my dad worked most days and nights to support my mum, sister and myself. I don't know, but could this be a reason why occassionally I feel slightly insecure about things like this? It's not a huge problem, or a problem at all, I'm just curious! :p:

    possibly - though tbh when you are growing up its totally natural to get insecure, and some people do more so than others. re the boyfriend thing, i think you'll find thats (unfortunately) pretty common, best thing to do is just enjoy the time you spend with your boyfriend and remember he is with you not other girls. its annoying but..just something you gotta hack dont worrrry
