Are you a victim of self-doubt, do you lack self-confidence, do you usually feel like a fraud, do you feel that you can’t love or be loved, has insecurity and negative thoughts turns you into introvert?
Emotional insecurity is a feeling of general unease or nervousness that may be triggered by perceiving of oneself to be vulnerable or inferior in some way, or a sense of vulnerability or instability which threatens one’s self-image or ego.
It’s normal for us to feel insecure once in a while, but some people feel insecure always due to some negative occurrence like: negative self-beliefs, perfectionism, social anxiety, loneliness, experience of rejection and failure, past traumas and the kind of childhood experienced.
I want you to know that we are not born to be perfect but to be happy, no one ever born is perfect and no one will ever be, your imperfections are what makes you who you are, your imperfections make you unique and also makes you awesome. You can overcome insecurity in a psychological warfare using tactics and strategies:
Number one weapon to conquer your insecurity is self-compassion, you must love yourself and accept yourself for who you are, you must believe in yourself that you worth it and you must maintain positive self-image of yourself.
You must have the courage to shun and rebuke the voice of your inner critic, correct and motivate it when needed, nobody can do that for you but yourself. What we think we need the most is what we are best without, get out of your comfort zone, engage with life and socialize; by doing what you love in order to be happy with yourself and others.
Rebuke fear and frustration that brings anxiety, insecurity is just a delusion. You’re absolutely unique just like everyone else. You’re bigger than your ego, self-doubt, negative self-thought and others opinion about you. No one alive has witness the struggles you survived; that’s what makes you the hero of your own story.
Those who are perfectionists often suffer conditional self-esteem which makes them love themselves when things go their way and hate themselves when it doesn’t. I implore you to learn how to love yourself, even when you know that you’re not at your best; focus on your intrinsic values, qualities and embrace positivity.
It is awful when you’re going through something that is killing you from inside but you have to pretend as if it doesn’t affect you at all. I dare challenge you to rebuke and break free from fear that kept you in dungeon of insecurity. Improve your self-compassion, it will boost your self-esteem and you will experience a wonderful fulfilled life.
