Insecurity, like many difficult feelings, is one we often try to banish. However, the more we avoid it the stronger it tends to grow. ⠀
Instead, I invite you to get curious. ⠀
Why is insecurity showing up now? What beliefs, thoughts, feelings, actions are coupled with it? Is it really insecurity or something else? ⠀
Is there any benefit to this difficult feeling? Has it ever been helpful? Even once? ⠀
If this feeling sent you a memo, what would it say? ⠀
Are you owning insecurity for something that’s not yours to own? Is it possible that this discomfort says more about them or you? Or, perhaps this feeling is reflective of a larger issue?
Really see if you can get to know the inner workings. Sometimes the results of such an exploration can surprise us, release us, or make us realize we need to recruit some help with it. That’s ok. You’re on your way.
