Things to Remember When You Feel Unsure of Yourself
Whenever you’re unsure of yourself, whenever you're in doubt, ask yourself this three questions. What do you believe in? What do you hope for? But most important, ask yourself, what do you love?
There are times that we feel unsure about ourselves. I know exactly how you feel. I used to be incredibly unsure of myself… and sometimes I still am.
But being unsure is not all bad. Anxiety, self-consciousness, an inability to adapt and feeling “different” – they’re not all bad. Those are inner traits that we already have since we were born. Without them we would have never learn from our mistakes, our faults, and we would have never pass or overcome all the wild trials that we had in life. They are one of the reasons that shaped us into the person we are today.
The enemies we encounter in life, especially our own inner evil traits, use the things were insecure about against us.
We can run, but we can't hide forever. We have to adapt. We have to join. We have to overcome through our insecurities.
But we have to free ourselves from our own inner demons and take control of our lives again by being secure of which we are - flaws and all.
This is a journey we have to take.
And here are some important things to keep in mind:
1. Live the story you want to tell.
There is no greater agony than bearing an untold stories inside you. Don’t ever be afraid to show who you really are, because as long as you are happy with yourself, no one else opinion matters. Tell the story you want to live and you will eventually live it.
2. Insecurities and doubts are unreliable and changeable.
The biggest challenge you have is to challenge your own self-doubt and your insecurities. It is the reasons that defines and limit who you are. Until you make unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate. Don’t let self-doubt deter you from progression. Always focus on learning.
3. The moment of truth is one of the most powerful assets.
You can lie to anyone else in the world, but you can't lie to yourself. Stop pretending to yourself, because you might forget who you really are. Love yourself, forgive yourself, and be true to yourself. How you treat yourself sets the standard for how others will treat you.
4. It's time to focus on what matters.
Sometimes all you have to do is forget what you feel and embrace what you deserve. Focus on where you want to be, not where you were, or where you are. A self-focus determines your reality.
5. Everyone has their own way.
Every single person on the planet has a story. Don’t judge people before you truly know them. Stop judging. Cause judging a person does not define who they are. It defines who you are.
Overcoming insecurity is simple. Not all people know how to because not all people know how their mind works. Insecurities are boring when the mind adopts a belief - any belief. You must remove your beliefs by questioning them – seeing the falsity in them. And when your beliefs, one by one, start to fade, so will your insecurities. When all your beliefs have faded, your mind will return to its natural blissful state.
