You’re Not Taking Care of Yourself
Your last break-up was hard, and you took it really hard. It’s one thing to indulge your heartbreak and lay in bed eating mozzarella sticks for a week, but it’s another to still be pajama-clad 24/7 after a month has gone by. Relationships and break-ups can take a lot out of you, stunting your self-esteem and your self-confidence. But without strong stability in those two areas, you’re going to be insecure, needy and vulnerable when you try to open up to a new partner. You have to take care of yourself before you can take care of anyone else. Let’s put it this way: If you’ve stopped showering on the regular because you “have no one to impress,” you’re in no shape to be in a relationship.
It’s hard to know when you’re fully ready to commit to a new person. Be honest, cautious and considerate and you’re sure to find someone way better than your ex.
