  1. What to do: It’s easy to feel like a failure when you’re constantly struggling with new challenges. But degrading yourself for not being perfect at something the first (or second, or even third) time you try it isn’t going to help. Instead, ask your partner for support. Tell him/her how you’re feeling, and then ask them to love you, even if you mess up another 100 times. Chances are, they’ll be relieved that you’re human too. Asking for help can be tricky for many of us (any super-moms out there?). But leaning on your partner when you’re feeling vulnerable is the whole point of intimacy. Let them hold your hand during this difficult time.
