I am in a relationship where I feel like I am a nobody since my boyfriend is extra popular and a campus hero. I admire the fact that he gets a lot of attention, and it would be nice if I too had my share. At times, I feel insecure because of all these and also because a lot of girls have a crush on him.


Dear Distressed,

Remind yourself that you are 'special' on your own as well. And your partner actually chose you over the many other girls whom have a crush on him. Extreme popularity in your partner can be intimidating sometimes but a strong self-belief and assurance overtrumps any sort of insecurities.

Please practice self-affirmation every day, to learn more on the technique visit a mental health professional and they will be able to guide you properly.

In short, we can say that try chanting to yourself every day in the early mornings, after your wake up — "I am beautiful, I am powerful, I can do whatever I want, I am enough and I am grateful for everything I have in my life right now."
