better at hiding them while others are good at dealing with them.
Sometimes you just don’t feel like you’re good enough or doing enough.
In this day and time where people get ‘standards’ from social media, it
is even more difficult for people to manage their insecurities.
lot of people suffer from depression and even go as far as committing
suicide just because they were bullied, rejected or criticized because
of their inadequacies.
There is no one way to overcome
insecurities as everyone deal with it differently. However, these are
few tips I believe would set you on the track:
Build Your Confidence.
When you have self confidence
you can’t be bothered about anyone who thinks you’re not good enough.
The truth is most people point out the insecurities of others just to
They project their fears on you and try to
convince you that you can’t succeed. What you need to do is learn Self
Approval. If it’s good enough for you then put it out there. Even if
it’ll take a while, your work will surely get recognised.
Do not depend on other people to tell you what is or isn’t good enough for you.
Always Surround Yourself With Positive Friends.
It’s also very important to be around people who give you strength in your weakness and knows how to give you the right push.
avoid toxic friendships and stay away from people who see you as a
nonentity or a “never-do-well”. People like that only know how to
condemn without giving any good suggestion.
Pray About It.
There are times I get so worried about issues and I just pray. Even when the problem haven’t been resolved, within me I get a kind of reassurance that everything would be fine.
underestimate the power of prayers. The answers may take a while but
knowing that you didn’t leave God out of it should be a source of relief
because He is the one who makes all things beautiful in His own time.
Do Not Be Afraid Of Criticism Or Rejection.
reason why some of us are not pursuing our dreams is because we’re
scared of being criticized or ignored. What we fail to realize however,
is the fact that sometimes criticisms bring out the best in us.
I once asked a friend
to review my articles and the response I got was a little different
from what I expected. He told me that one of the articles was too basic
while he complimented the other, talking about how I owned that
As my friend it was normal for me to
expect him to applaud me, but it was even better he told me the truth
because it affected the way I wrote my next article. I was able to make
it more personal and relatable.
There is nothing wrong
with trying to improve yourself to meet certain standards. Just make
sure you’re doing it for you, not because of someone’s approval but
because it’s what you want.
