In many instances, women fall for the wrong men because these women are battling with low self-esteem. In fact, a 2014 Glamour survey revealed that over 50 percent of women are unhappy with their bodies, and approximately 80 percent of women can’t even look at themselves in the mirror without overwhelming feelings of disappointment and self-loathing. And with these unfortunate statistics in mind, it’s not surprising women can end up attracting men who don’t treat them well, don’t fulfill their needs, and don’t provide them with love and emotional support because these women think they don’t deserve any better.
And because these women tend to only believe the worst about themselves and mistakenly think they’re not pretty enough, good enough, smart enough, or successful enough, they pick men who directly play into these insecurities. Fortunately, if you’re struggling with self-esteem issues, there are steps you can take right now to combat these feelings of self-doubt, such as putting an end to negative self-talk, finding new and interesting activities you enjoy, and letting go of your incessant need to compare yourself to others. When you’re able to see just how amazing you truly are, you’ll be better equipped to attract a man who recognizes this about you as well.
