Our insecurities eat us up inside. And we all have them. Somehow, somewhere along the way we developed them. Here are some steps that will hopefully help you like they helped me.
1. Say It Out Loud.
When you say something out loud it makes things all the more real. We don’t share our insecurities, or if we do, not all of them. I used to hate my teeth, they’re not straight and they’re yellow. I never say this, cause I’m afraid that people will notice, but then I realized that they will either way, And if they think that there is something wrong with it then that is their problem. The moment I said this out loud the moment I began to accept it and move past it.
2. Determine the Root Cause, and Realize That It isn’t Worth the Stress and Pain
More likely than not, we develop insecurities because of the societal norms and standards. These norms and standards are heavily propagated, by media, individuals and even our own families. Let go of the things and people who make you feel like you are not enough. Because they will hurt you. EVERY SINGLE DAY. Remember that we are all equal, we all walk on the same earth, yet we are also different. Celebrate what makes you different.
3. Let Go of The Thoughts That Do Not Make You Strong
Sometimes you can’t change the way people look at you or what they think about you, but YOU CAN. So let the bad thoughts go. Let go of the people who don’t make you feel good about yourself, and engage in activities that make you feel good. Do not dwell on the negative thoughts and feelings. Don’t focus on the things that you don’t have but wish to have, even if this is hard. Just focus on what YOU have; which is a lot and more than enough. ❤
We can’t get rid of our insecurities altogether. They will always creep up from time to time. But when they do, we can just always remember, that there is so much more to us than our insecurities. Let’s not live our lives allowing them to hug us so tight that we can never move forward.
