Try to gradually overcome your tendency to feel insecure by introducing yourself to those situations slowly - as a sort of desensitization process.
If you have trouble in social environments, for example, ask trusted friends or family members to go with you and act as a buffer.
Make yourself step outside of your comfort zone by removing your usual precautions.
If you typically interact through e-mail or shop online, try picking up the phone instead. Once you are comfortable doing this, take care of business in person.
Visualize the things that you like or admire and stop looking at yourself so critically. You are likely to be the only person who judges you so harshly.
Accept them exactly as they are.
Accept that they are unable to change, at least at this point in time. Unless you see real change — proof that this person is making an effort to listen and meet you halfway — you can assume that their behavior is what it has always been.
Pay attention to your emotions as you start to think about eating (you might feel hungry, or have a craving to eat something). Notice your emotions as you eat, and after as well.
Keep a few notes — what emotions do you feel, when, and why. What do you feel like eating?
If your partner feels insecure, it’s because they haven’t dealt with whatever is putting them in a negative state.
This could be that their needs aren’t being met by your relationship, or it could have to do with something outside your union, like their own lack of self-confidence or fear of the unknown.
