 Overcoming Insecurity

Insecurity is the monster that sits inside of us and taunts from time to time. None of us are perfect and all of us have faced moments of insecurity at some time in our lives. Nonetheless there are those who are constantly plagued by insecurity. Insecure people believe that they are not good enough, they will never measure up to anything and that they need to do more to receive love and acceptance from others. This forces them to live all their life hiding from people or wearing a mask and act like a totally different person. This feeling of insecurity takes away the simple joys of living. 

It was believed that insecurity was more common among women than men. However recent studies show that the gap is closing down. In reality even though as a generation we are more educated, earning more, and our standard of living is much higher we are a more insecure generation than our ancestors ever were. We are constantly on the edge and rattled about what the future holds for us. The good news is we can overcome insecurities. This blog shows you ways of handling feelings of insecurity.

Concluding Thoughts

Insecurity steals the simple joys of living. It is important to overcome insecurity and learn to accept ourselves for who we are with ours flaws and failures. When we learn to adjust our perspective and see ourselves in the light of reality we begin to accept and appreciate ourselves for who we are. It is important to realize that no one is perfect, no matter how perfect they seem from outside. We need to see ourselves as people who have scope for improvement not as finished products. Commitment to self-improvement helps bring back a feeling of security and the joy of living.
