Balance your polarity

In every relationship, there is one partner with masculine energy and another with feminine energy. 

If both partners take on masculine or feminine traits, it can cause insecurities to arise. Look at how your roles have changed over time. How can you restore polarity and banish insecurity?

Act like you’re a new couple

When you start dating someone new, the energy is electrifying. As you become better acquainted with your partner, the fireworks you first felt start to fizzle. 

Bring back the passion in your relationship and act like you did when you started dating. Compliment your partner. Plan surprising dates. These small acts can help to squash insecurities and help your partner feel wanted.

Create new stories

Instead of insisting that your partner always does something that irritates you, try shifting your mindset.

Accept your partner for who they are and decide to create a beautiful new story together instead of reliving past pain.
