lost my self-esteem
I'm 22 and feel resentful towards my boyfriend of 15 months. We went through a period of lots of arguments and disagreements and during this time he said things such as "you don't complete me", "I'm just with you until the next best person comes around" and "you are not the strong confident woman I want you to be".
He tends to judge me a lot and even though he doesn't say it, I think he hates the fact that I am a quiet (introvert) and sometimes shy person.
Before I met him I was making progress with working on my confidence and self-esteem, and then after the arguments and said statements my self-esteem is now almost non-existant. He has apologised for hurting me with what he said but now he has a problem with the fact that I just can't get over it and get back to being confident.
I want to feel confident again because I don't want my low-self esteem to make me look unattractive in his eyes but I have no idea where to start. I just keep hearing his cold words.
