You may be more critical of potential suitors or, if in a relationship, of your partner. Although you may think you’re being helpful, your words could be received as harsh or judgmental. At the same time, you might be more sensitive to other people’s criticism, because you may feel less confident than usual.
Luckily, you’re willing to work through any relationship issues that come up during this time, and you can make lasting improvements in your partnership.
In fact, this also could be a favorable time to work on your most important and lifelong relationship: the one you have with yourself.
Self-acceptance will be a big lesson now, especially regarding your feelings of attractiveness. You might pick apart your appearance and be critical for your perceived faults and imperfections. If there’s an area to make a positive difference – like improving your self-care habits through diet or exercise – this is an excellent time to do so. For those parts beyond your control, practice loving yourself just as you are.
