We often find ourselves filled with self-doubt and short on confidence. It can be so easy to feel insecure because we easily believe that there is something wrong with us. Our brains buy into negative stories automatically leading us to feel chronically insecure.

What makes us insecure?

  1. Failure or Rejection

Events in our lives can greatly affect us. People are more reactive to failure and it instantly gives rise to self-degrading feelings. You lose the night because of one failed event and forever are insecure to put your best foot forward.

  1. Self-image

Social media today projects, unrealistic and altered images and results in major self-esteem issues. They do not feel satisfied based on what they look like or based on their achievements. They take it personally and believe that they are missing something.

  1. Anxiety and past experiences

Feelings of worthlessness as a child can be carried on into adulthood subconsciously. The thoughts that you are not good enough often causes constant anxiety and makes one highly insecure.

What can you do to overcome insecurity?

A few simple steps will help you overcome your insecurities.

  1. Give yourself enough time to accept and heal from your past events
  2. Reach out to friends and family for distraction and comfort.
  3. Set yourself a limited, realistic goal
  4. Accept all of yourself. Pause and take a self-assessment
  5. Practice self-approval and embrace non-comparison

Such feelings of insecurity can be nerve-wracking and overwhelming at most times. At such an hour, making the decision to seek help for your mental health is a wise choice. Taking the plunge to enrol for counselling can be really transformative.
