Validating yourself in relationships - without being co-dependentTrusting people, being vulnerable and putting yourself out thereHow to have more intimacy - and confidence - in your connection with your partner

HOW TO BE CONFIDENT ON YOUR OWN IN A RELATIONSHIP
If you're a word of affirmation person, this almost seems like a contradiction, but I promise you, it's possible.
You must be willing to be yourself -and to be honest.
1. Know yourself. Be yourself.
2. Have confidence about what you bring to the relationship.
3. Give yourself confidence - through journaling, through taking action, through coaching, through spending time with God, through challenging yourself, etc.
4. Ask for what you need - and be honest about how compliments encourage you.I spoon fed my husband what he needs to say to encourage me.
How did I figure it out? I had to first know what I needed.
All relationships need time together and time apart.
Allow one another to go do their own thing - to fill their bucket, and then also prioritize filling your bucket as a couple.
Make your relationships baseline foundation open communication.
Communicate about everything - the more you communicate, the more confidence you will have. Be patient though, every partnership communicates differently.
Be willing to be emotionally brave - to talk about uncomfortable things.
Do you want a better sex life? Talk about it, it detail.
