I've always struggled with low self-esteem, can't really figure out why i'm so critical of myself but hopefully one day in therapy i'll gain that insight. But it's really been effecting my relationship recently. Maybe it's just so many things like covid, him being busier, and other relationship issues that have been really piling on me but i have been lower than ever this past month. some days it turns into a depression but i do my best to get myself out/distract myself. I know these ups and downs are hard for my boyfriend but how do i really explain to him that it's not something that stems from how he acts or what he says to me. and the guilt of him feeling stressed or anyway upset that he's not a good partner just adds to the self hate. its a vicious cycle.
