The Effects of Insecurity

No comments :

We can't deny that sometimes insecurity lingers into our mind and that we cannot run from it. We try to avoid it but we can't help to compare ourselves to others and doubt our own strength. To begin with, being insecure is not a healthy attitude. Trust me, it will not help you at all. To start, why don't we discuss the effects it brings to us?
  1. Insecure People are Angry. There will be a moment that sometimes, we feel so poor about ourselves; that we are not satisfied with what we have now. We are not contented to the level of accomplishment that we are earning. These results to anger as we, sometimes, resent the success and happiness of others.
  2. Lack of Confidence. If we don't trust ourselves and very doubtful to what we have, and that our confidence level is so low, we become prideful and snobbish. It causes us to withdraw from others and maybe misinterpreted as act of arrogance. It may bring thought to others that we don't want to be surrounded by other people.
  3. Fear. If we are insecure about everything, we become fearful. Due to this, we can't make our own decision and that we will always depend to others. We will become very afraid that our decision might result to a mistake. Well, who doesn't make mistake? Remember that making mistakes is one of the best ways to learn how to do it and correct it in the future.
  4. Difficulty in Relationship. Difficulty in establishing good and lasting relationship is another effect of insecurity. Insecure people tend to question their value and how can they contribute and improve anyone else's life. Everyone needs a deep and meaningful relationship whether it is friendship or a romantic one. It helps us grow and contributes to our maturity.

Every time I feel insecure, I always pray to God, for Him to make me realize and recognize my areas of self-doubt. We can always ask Him to help us towards the freedom of insecurities and wipe away all our doubts. The verse that becomes helpful is this: Psalm 143:8 (Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I entrust my life). Just trust Him, He loves us so much.
