Dont Worry, We All Have Insecurities!

“Insecurity is your intuition telling you that something’s not right… either with them or with you.” Charles J Orlando

So let’s face it. We all have insecurities, a bunch of them, at some point in life. We humans do get insecure about relationships, love, success or people. Of course how each one of us may choose to handle it greatly depend on the mental strength we have. But there is no denying insecurity does creep into each one of us.

Here I am in a very unique stage of my life.  A happy one I would like to call it, ‘because I have it all. I have a comfortable home, a dream job and career, and a loving family that gives me all the warmth and care. Yet, despite all the goodness around me, insecurities do creep within.

Insecurities aren’t positive emotions

Insecurity is a form of fear.  It may just begin from a single thought. But let this weed grow and trust me, it could stem into negativity, which may just be tough to shake off from your mind. I often get insecure about my relationships, that I may lose my loved ones, and I wouldn’t have them around me in my life. Another insecurity I have is towards my health. What if I have to face bad health towards the end of my life or, probably suffer a slow, painful and lingering death instead of a quick sudden one?

An effort to overcome insecurity

To overcome insecurity, one must develop a focus on building mental strength. It is all about being courageous and learning to accept the ways of life. Despite all the insecurities that creep within, what works for me to overcome it, is distraction. I keep myself busy; I work, exercise and tire my body and mind. It works wonders and I am soon able to brush off those negative thoughts. Of course they do come back again. But, I try to never let them bog me down.

What are your insecurities and how do you overcome it?

    Insecurities! How they haunt me! Am I taking the right career decision or not, what am I doing with my life are questions that often haunt me. Focusing on things going right helps me.

    Oh, we all come with some baggage as we arent perfect. But these insecurities can be pretty toxic for our relationships. While it is normal to have this feeling, harboring it for a long time, can sabotage your happiness. So, it’s best to let go of it asap.

    O yes! I security isn’t a very good feeling yet we all experience it at some point in life. I’m really possessive about my relationships with people and if I see someone getting close to the person I am, God help them!!

    insecurity.. oh yes but also stubborn and fixated. It kind of evens out for me. I would have to say my way of going around the biggest insecurity is me not reading replies on posts or reviews online to avoid causing myself to be insecure. We all have our coping mechanisms. Good post.

    My insecurity comes from my profession… as the technology keeps changing every season, there’s a lot of pressure to keep myself updated and that leads to a lot of questions and apprehensions. The only way to tackle this is to keep learning 🙂

    Being insecure is a part and parcel of human psyche. I believe, we should tackle each of these insecurities as and when they appear without giving much fuel to them by brooding about them. Your tips of exercising and keeping one’s self healthy to tackle insecurities make a lot of sense.

    At this stage in my life, I don’t have a lot of insecurities. That’s one good thing about ageing! 🙂 Still, every now and then, the little voice of self-doubt rears its ugly head, but it gets beaten back into submission, by focusing on the positive.
