Hello there!

I decided to take part in this beautiful project called #GoldenInsecurities, created by my good friend Caylie (@dystopiaglory). I highly suggest you check her article out and take part in this project!

There are many ways you can take part in it! So check out her article to learn more.

So today, inspired by her project, I wanted to talk about how we can find inspiration and strengh in our insecurities. If you start thinking this way about your insecurities, you will only go forward from now on. Discover the security in insecurity.

Identify your insecurities

To act upon your insecurities, you first have to indentify them. The deeper you go, the better you will understand them.

Here are some questions you should ask yourself:

  • What do I tend to feel insecure about?
  • Why am I feeling insecure about these things?
  • When do I feel this way?

Share your struggles

The most powerful words that we can hear during struggle are “me too.”
- Brené Brown

Sharing our insecurities is a way of accepting them. When we keep them to ourselves, we don't give anyone a change to relate to us. This can often lead to the thought of us being "weird" or being the only one going through it. But the truth is, you are not alone. By sharing your insecurities, you will feel and make other feel like they are understood.

By conecting with people that struggle with the same things as you, you will acknowledge your insecurities and start acting upon them. You will inspire others to work on them, and they will inspire you as well. The sooner you deal with what makes you insecure, the less stress you will feel.

Positive self-talk

"The biggest critic lives in your perception of people’s perception of you (not people’s actual perception of you)"

It is all in our brain. We tend to think that everyone pays attention to all our flaws but in reality, most of them time, they don't even consider them as flaws. We are our own biggest critic. The moment you decide to see the positive side of things, everything will change. Half of the things you are feeling insecure about, are just in your head. And the other half, they are plenty of things you can do to "fix" them.

Commit

"To overcome your insecurities, you need to break away from old habits and patterns of behavior. You then need to replace those habits with empowering habits, daily rituals, and routines that support your goals and objectives. Moreover, you must condition a new set of beliefs that align with those habits. Only in this way will you acquire the mental strength and momentum needed to overcome your insecurities."

Use your insecurities to inspire you and motivate you to do better. Do something small that helps you move forward. And work inside out. It won't be any different if you just change how you look to "convince" yourself and others. You have to change your mindset and believe it first. And then you will start seeing changes in the outside.

Your struggles have been making you, not breaking you

You are the person you are today because of the things you experience in life, the good and the bad. You are learning everyday and creating yourself everyday. Sometimes it is necessary to go through difficulties to be able to grow as a person. All the things you are feeling right now, all your past experiences that make you now feel insecure are part of who you are today and who you will be tomorrow.
