We have lots of insecurities
Women are riddled with insecurities. If you don’t believe me, go into a bathroom in any bar on a Saturday night. “Does my butt look ok in these jeans?” “Oh my god, my hair looks so bad!” Yeah, I go into the bathroom to make sure I still look put-together as well. I am a girl and all. I certainly want to put my best foot forward.
The problem with insecurity is that it rubs off on those around you. I work with someone who is horribly insecure, and just being around this person makes everyone more insecure and unsure of themselves.
The good news
Insecurities can be overcome. It takes work, though. Lots of hard work. It takes accepting yourself for who you are…and who you are not. I know that I will never win a beauty contest, and I am okay with that. I try to make the best of what God gave me. I try not to compare myself to people. Don’t go fishing for compliments to make yourself feel better. Look in the mirror and purpose that, at this moment, you are going to like who you are, and you are going to like what you see. Find something about yourself that you like. If you don’t like yourself, how can you possibly expect someone else to like you?
I am by no means claiming that I am the most secure person in the world. But I am working on it daily.
