Okay. Insecurity is a horrible feeling and I can’t imagine what it is like to feel it on a daily basis. The truth is, I’m not one for feeling insecure about myself – as much as I suffer with anxiety, it’s directed more towards my loved ones and the people I care most about. I’m not self-conscious or insecure when it comes to myself, but this post is a mere reflection of expression: a personal opinion whereby I’m stating that sometimes, something or more importantly, someone can make me feel insecure.
It’s a feeling I absolutely hate and so wish I could change – but then it’s like am I being hypocritical in saying I’m not insecure about myself if someone or something is making me feel this way? A question I often trouble myself with, but I like to think the answer is no. Unfortunately, no matter how confidence someone is, there is always going to be something or someone that can make them feel less… Significant is the better term. And that’s just life.
Nobody is perfect. This idea of perfection is found when you learn to love yourself no matter what your flaws are. Everyone is unique and nobody is the same. But one of the things that inspired this post I guess is this idea of seeing insecurities in other people, but the type of people that use it to their advantage to make other people feel insecure too. It’s those type of people that put me on edge.
I don’t want to judge, because everyone has a story and there are many reasons why people feel the way they do – but some people can be so wicked about it, and I don’t understand what they get out of making others uncomfortable. Does it make them feel better?
I feel so judgmental, but at the same time I really despise people who use their own insecurities to make other people feel bad. It’s like a form of bullying. But you know what, when I feel this way, I go to one of my friends and they make me feel ten times better about the situation.
So, I guess the point of this post is merely a rant, a reflection, and a conclusion that good friends and being appreciated can make you feel ten times better. Don’t worry about what other people do or say – just focus on the people who mean the most to you and are always there to help you out.
