    Look at a baby - he is so insecure when he gives his first steps. But he will give another and another and another UNTIL he feels secure... Look at a child climbing a tree for the first time... One has to do what makes him feel insecure until he can do it and then he will be rewarded with a feeling of security. So, fake it till you make it... Believe in yourself. He who perseveres, wins smile But, of course, be rational. When I was 6 I thought I would be able to fly like a bird. So I still feel insecure when I try to fly out of my bedroom window.... smile)

    First of all, I don't always succeed in overcoming my insecurity - more's the pity!

    But the best thing I have found to work for me is to try to find something about the situation I am facing (the one that makes me feel insecure) that resembles a different situation in which I have been successful.

    I try to remember or discover what it was about the successful situation that helped me to succeed - and then, I try to find ways to incorporate those elements into the situation where I feel insecure.

    Throw into it the Light of the Divine. This is the safest way. Rise at 6.00 a.m. and sit in silence with your eyes fixed on a picture of your spiritual ideal. Breathe in and out slowly. Relax. Pray for 5 minutes and then close your eyes and focus on your chest, the spiritual heart. Do this regularly without fail for three months and your insecurity will diminish considerably. If you need a formula in this area, then write to me.

    dear, Insecurity is a mental thinking. Every one comes to earth alone.But in all walk of life we depend up on to father, mother,brother,sister, friends and this list will increase every day. As a social being our attachment is more. But some times, suddenly we feel insecurity. Why this?. The answer is vary. It may occur when your lover leave you, or sweet husband/wife leave you for few days, or your child  left you for his higher studies. Such departure put you in loneliness, and it is slowly lead you to think insecurity.
    How to escape from thought of insecurity is to engage with some work.Be busy be active always. If you don't have any work, read good  joke books or try to stitch some thing know stitching. Go out for a evening/morning walk,visit relative/friends.If you do not  have such people, be friends with some good people. To get friends, visit church, visit reading hall.
    Another way to feel security is to visit hospitals, children's home, etc.and some charitable work.

      Many valuable tips and some practical ideas. But you have left out God. Without the roots, the tree cannot grow. Frankly, after some 30 years of prayer and meditation, I still get bouts of insecurity. Transformation requires  descent of Higher Light

    What worked for me was to find something that I loved so passionately that I literally took it with me everywhere I went, and by doing so found like-minded individuals who made me feel welcome and secure. That something could be God, Books, or anything, really. For me it was Doctor Who. I grew up in a town where football was everything and choir kids like me got stuffed in lockers and didn't talk about nerdy things, because we wanted to be cool. When I began watching Doctor Who, I couldn't deny myself, and I began bringing a plastic replica of a Sonic Screwdriver with me everywhere I went, and showing it off proudly. Sure, it made me feel insecure or unwelcome in some cases, but I had just as many people come up to me and say "Is that a Sonic Screwdriver?" or "I love that Sonic! Where did you get it?" I started finding people that I could hang out with and feel secure around. Two years ago I was an introverted nerd who rarely if ever left his room and computer. Now I'm still a nerd, but I'm much more comfortable outside of my "cave." In fact, I met my girlfriend because of the Sonic Screwdriver. The thing is that we're all insecure because we're afraid others won't accept or agree with us, but if one person takes a chance and broadcasts their trepidation, you'll find others like you that have been waiting for the opportunity to come out of their shell.
