How do you deal with your own insecurities?

By: Dr. Jennifer B. Lagrotte, DMFT

It would seem that while security in life is something desired by most people, it can easily be something that many are left chasing throughout their entire life. There are many reasons for this, especially for people who have been abused at some point in their life, or have always found fault in themselves. The inability to trust in others can create some difficulty in finding a secure relationship. Feeling unsure of one's self or feeling that they do not really have a right to a better life can also get in the way of a woman finding a secure life for herself.

Life, in general, is something that is never going to be one hundred percent guaranteed; however, one can work to find their own place in life where they are comfortable and have something close to what they want. Relationships, whether they are friendships or something more can help to build some security in life. Friends and/or a significant other can help a great deal, because they are a form of support they can depend on if something were to go wrong. That being said, it is not always easy. To build relationships, one has to be willing to communicate with others in order to meet people. From there, one has to be open to the idea of eventually being able to put trust into someone else has to be there, or strong friendships or relationships cannot grow. Trust, acceptance and open communication is what will often build strong bonds between people, without these, relationships can be hard to keep or even start.

People who feel insecure in themselves will often find themselves avoiding people. If they do not avoid others, they may look to make friends with the kind of people who are not the kind of people who will help to build confidence in themselves or their life choices. If anything, it could actually create more of a problem for the person looking for some relief from their insecurities. In truth, before one can work to lessen their insecurities, they need to first address what it is that is causing them. Speaking with an online counselor through online therapy can go a long way to helping one to address what is getting in the way of their being able to settle in to life. Some might not feel that speaking with an online therapist could help, but it could help one to address their issues and get them moving forward in their life. An online counselor is easy to talk to and can be contacted at any time. Once in touch, the online therapist could help one to settle their fears and work towards lessening their one or many insecurities and worries about life. As time goes one, and one stays with the online counseling, they may find they can relax and enjoy life. It could also eventually lead to healthier, stronger and longer relationships, which can, in turn, create the feeling of more security in life and one's self.
