Insecurities: Remembering who you’re at your core
Insecurity is a feeling that can take hold of us at any moment in our lives, even when we least expect it. It can be a subtle undercurrent that we carry around with us for years, or it can suddenly surface after a life-changing experience, an incident, or a new encounter. Regardless of how it begins, insecurities can shake our foundation and make us question everything we once believed about ourselves.
I have been thinking lately about “Insecurities” and how we can go for a lifetime without knowing we have any. We often believe that we are in control of our emotions and have a solid understanding of who we are and what we stand for. However, life has a funny way of challenging our assumptions and making us question everything.
It could be a new relationship that exposes our deepest fears and insecurities or a new job requiring us to step outside our comfort zone. It could be a new group of friends who have a different perspective on life. Whatever it is, it can cause us to question everything we thought we knew about ourselves.
This can be a scary and unsettling experience, but it can also be a journey to self-discovery. By facing our insecurities head-on, we can learn more about who we are and what we stand for. We can also discover our strengths and weaknesses and find ways to grow and improve.
Insecurities can be a powerful motivator for change. They can drive us to work harder, become more confident, and live a more authentic life or they can drive us far away from things we should be facing head-on.
By embracing our insecurities, we can take control of our lives and shape our future in the way that we want.
In conclusion, insecurities can be a difficult and challenging experience, but they can also lead to personal growth and self-discovery. By facing our insecurities head-on, we can learn more about ourselves and what we stand for, and ultimately become the best version of ourselves.
Personally, I think the best thing about insecurities coming to the surface is that you can deal with them and become the best version of yourself and one way to do this is to always remember who you are at your core and not to let any circumstances or life happenings change it.
It’s important to hold on to your values and beliefs and not let insecurities define who you are or dictate the direction of your life.
So, if you’re struggling with insecurities, know that you’re not alone and that there are ways to overcome them. By focusing on self-awareness and its triggers, self-acceptance and even going for therapy, you can learn to embrace your insecurities and use them to drive personal growth and self-discovery.
