Overcoming Insecurity.


I am going through a phase. *Correction. A nasty phase. 


I am freaking drowning in insecurity.

Deep down, I know that insecurity is not going to get me anywhere. I know this could possible ruin relationships. But even with this realisation, I still continue to carry on with this habit of mine.


I completely despise myself, when I bind myself with this emotion. I spend hours reassuring my heart that I ain’t gonna loose anything or anyone which truly belongs to me. Yet, there is this emotional war which takes place inside my head , weighing all my good qualities and bad qualities.

Although , it is quite common to feel possessive over a person you love , I feel I take it to a whole new level. As much as I respect freedom in a relationship, I get too scared about the possibilities of loosing them to someone else. My insecurities engulf me and drop me into a tornado of emotions, and I DON’T LIKE IT.

Lately, I have been finding ways to fight my insecurity and I felt the need to share it with you all , as I know that there are many more souls out there who struggle with insecurity just like me (if not more).

  • Music. It always helps. 
  • Remind yourself that you are the best. You may not be perfect, but you will always be you, and trust me being ‘you’ is the best thing you could be.
  • Start loving yourself. In this world where materialistic love is drowning people, the best love you could get is the one from within yourself.
  • Remember that bucket list you made? Start working towards fulfilling some of those wishes. 
  • Vent it out. Talk about your feelings to someone, or write it down on a piece of paper (Or you could just make a blog post, like I did.). Once you do this, you will feel so much more relieved than you were before. 
  • Sleep. This one is quite hard, especially with the World War III taking place inside your head. But, sleep has got to be the best therapy I have ever come across.

Insecurity is an ugly thing and all I can do is hope and try my best to come out of this phase.


Take care,

From the not so-

  1. Start loving yourself. In this world where materialistic love is drowning people, the best love you could get is the one from within yourself.

  2. Hey! I hope you’re feeling alright by now. May I offer a suggestion; to simply not care. This was what I found the most effective when I was facing similar problems.

    You see, the things that you do and suggested, they’re all temporary solutions. They don’t tackle the root of your problem. Listening to music is just a gateway for a quick escape, and the rest of the methods are, ironically, requiring you to care even more. I’m not sure if I’m making the right presumption but it seems as tho you’re trying to escape thinking about things and dealing with your insecurities head-on etc.

    By not caring about anything, you won’t have to deal with insecurities. Why? Because insecurities stem from caring about what others think us. If you don’t care bout what others are saying and thinking bout you, then logically speaking, it’s not possible for you to develop insecurities. It’s hard tho, to not care, but once you practice enough, I can guarantee that you’ll physically feel enlightened. In the process, you might even build up some ego and have a chuckle when you look back at this post.

    Another way to deal with insecurities is to turn it into a game. Instead of wondering, who will Ieave, ask yourself, who will STAY? I believe that difficult times exist for us to weed out the negativity in our lives, and in this case, I’m referring to those who don’t bother keeping you by their sides. Not only will this make you a stronger person once the storm passes, you can also properly access your feelings in an objective fashion and find out who really matters in your life. At that point in time, you will then figure out if your initial insecurities about losing people were substantial in the first place 🙂

    p.s. Sorry for the long comment and I don’t mean to school you or anything; just offering my thoughts and some tips that I know will help you thru this internal struggle. I’ve been there before, and trust me, you’ll emerge a stronger person and gain a new perspective of the things around you!

A glass of whiskey for your perspective?!
