We are all, in our own way, insecure. We don’t like to say it because it’s unattractive to other people, right? Or maybe it’s because we don’t want to believe that words or actions or slights can make us feel so cornered.
We don’t like when people point out the flaws we have, and we don’t like disappointing other people. We don’t like the feeling that there is an attribute we carry that is unpopular or gives us a reason not to fit in.
It doesn’t matter how successful you are, how much money you make, how physically fit you might be, how beautifully your home is decorated, to be comfortable and secure in one’s skin is difficult. And it has to go beyond the external work. It has to come from deep inside of all of us.
But is it really about not being insecure anymore? or is it about allowing insecurity to wash over us, to sit with it, and dealing with it before moving on?
