21 Women reveal the struggles of having an insecure partner

No matter how successful or happy you are with life, we all get a little insecure at times. It's part of being human, and necessary for gaining perspective and being able to grow. But being constantly insecure about things that are totally exaggerated in your own head can cause all kinds of problems, especially if you're in a relationship.

These women confessed what it's like to have an insecure partner, revealing what it is that their partner feels unconfident or unsure about. Most of the time it's about physical appearances, but sometimes it's to do with unjustified jealousy – and that can be really damaging to a relationship.

While you might feel obligated to figure out where your partner's insecurity comes from and how you could help them overcome it, there's also a limit to how much you should put up with. As you'll see with some of these stories, sometimes there's just no way for you to help them, which is when their insecurity becomes a dealbreaker.
