“When feeling bad or threatened, low- self- esteem people often take a negative view of everything. They notice and remember others’ worst behaviours and think their partners don’t love them. (Murray & others, 1998, 2002; Ybarra, 1999). Although there is no evidence that low- self- esteem people choose less desirable partners, they are quick to believe their partners are criticising or rejecting them. Perhaps as a result, low- self- esteem people are less satisfied with their relationships (Fincham & Bradbury, 1993). They may also be more likely to leave those relationships.”

It just got me thinking. That’s all.
