Dealing With Insecurities


Staff Writer

Insecurities are a huge part of our lives as human beings. An insecurity is what makes us feel is inadequate. It’s that part of yourself that makes us less confident and vulnerable.

Everyone struggles with insecurities. It’s not having insecurities that creates problems, it’s how we choose to deal with them can be problematic.

It has been my experience that many people choose to deal with their insecurities negatively. I have encountered many people that deal with their insecurities by attempting to make others feel just as inadequate as they do about themselves.

It amazes me how much time people can spend slandering the name of others and being blatantly disrespectful to others in attempt to hide their extreme internal issues. 

Many people even take time to post negative statuses on social network sites such as Facebook and Twitter about others.

People fail to realize that in acting out in this manner, you’re exposing more of your insecurities. It is incredibly easy to pinpoint someone’s insecurities when they choose to act this way.

You create a trend of bashing the same kind of people or people with similar characteristics, making it easier to figure out exactly what it is inside of you that makes you feel meager. 

The more reasonable and beneficial way to deal with your insecurities is to first, address them head on. Figure out what your insecurities are and where they come from. Then work on bettering yourself. 

Having feelings of insecurities does not go away, but working on ways to be content with those insecurities is the best way to deal with those insecurities. 

Do not allow your insecurities to paint a negative image of who you are. Creating a negative image of yourself doesn’t allow for you to prosper in today’s world where you never know when you may need a person’s help. 

In the scheme of dealing with your insecurities improperly, you could be burning bridges that you may not know were there until it’s too late.
