How to get over the fear of losing your partner


You can’t control everything

The day you let go of control is the day you’ll start enjoying your relationship. Physically there’s nothing you can do to stop your partner from leaving. If your relationship has taken it’s toll, you’ll go your separate ways, if not you’ll get your happily ever after.

Accept that it’s natural

Having this fear isn’t new. Even though it differs for each person, the truth of the matter is everyone goes through it, even the most confident people.

It might turn things sour

Thinking about this once in a while is totally acceptable, but dwelling on the issue for the most part of your relationship could just push him away. This shows that you’re focused on the negative and aren’t enjoying your relationship for what it is.

Talk to your partner

One of the best ways to get this out of your mind is to talk about it to your man. Express your emotions and the reasons behind them. Reassurance will definitely ease your pain and stress, and you might even find that he has no intentions of calling it quits.

Face your fears

Facing your fears might help you. Take a moment and imagine life without him for a few minutes. At first, the picture might look sad however after a while you’ll realise that you’re gonna live and life will move on.

Enjoy your partner

Spending time worrying about something you can’t change will leave you to pick up the pieces after pushing your man without realising it. Live in the moment and enjoy your relationship.
