Insecure Beauty: [Ask Dr. Miro (What You Didn't Learn In Health Class)]

Dear Dr. Miro,

I think my new girlfriend is really insecure. It doesn’t make any sense because she’s gorgeous, sexy & brilliant. Is it possible for me to get her feeling better about herself or is this a big red flag that I need to pay attention to by cutting my losses.

Sincerely,
Shirley She’ll Change

Dear SSC,

No matter how much love and encouragement you give, a gal (or anyone, really) has to find self esteem within her own person. Sure, you will be able to assist her in gaining some feelings of security but there will always be that burden of proof upon you. If being gorgeous, sexy and brilliant was not enough for her innate feelings of worthiness, how are you going to help? Be careful she does not take you down with her in a crazed spiral of not being good enough. It sounds like you know what to do with this crimson flag. Pay attention to your instinct. Those lost, insecure, souls of the world are so easy to love and so difficult to untangle from when it is no longer fun. Perhaps you should consider adopting a shelter dog if you want to improve a gorgeous creatures life.

Lust & Happiness,
Dr. Miro
