Unfortunately, insecurity is a natural part of the human experience. I think I'm a relatively confident person, but I still feel insecure A LOT. One of the costs of being alive is the fact that, no matter who you are, you can expect to deal with insecurity of some kind on a daily basis. It may be something small or something huge. Regardless of what makes you feel insecure knowing what to tell yourself when you're feeling this way can help you keep excess negativity out of your life.
We all feel insecure about different things but whatever it is you're feeling insecure about isn't really the point. The point is this all levels of insecurity are unpleasant, and while feeling insecure is totally normal, it can steal your joy and seriously hinder your progress if you let it. So don't think you have to eradicate all insecurity from your life.I frequently think to myself, "No one can possibly be feeling as insecure as I'm feeling rn. But that just can't be true. I don't care how confident and self-assured someone is; no one is immune to insecurity. Allow yourself to feel whatever you need to feel, but don't mistake feelings for facts, and know that you're probably being way too hard on yourself. I try to use my insecurity as a motivator instead of a crutch, and you can, too. It's hard and it's scary, but if you push yourself to do/say/think the things that you're afraid of (but really want), then you'll slowly but surely cross items off that mental list of things that make you feel insecure.I only recently realized that these two seemingly conflicting emotions don't have to be mutually exclusive, and I think it might completely change my life. We've already established that feeling insecure isn't inherently bad, so there's no reason you can't feel happy while also feeling insecure, right? Right. So give it a shot!
