1.)Evaluate your negative inner voice- One of the last things that we want to do when feeling insecure is to stand face to face with the negativity that we are feeling. Unfortunately, these thoughts can turn into a traffic jam of insecurities within our mind that never stop. It can be helpful to explore the insecure thoughts and combat them. This can be done by writing down the negative thoughts, Seeing them on paper and then processing through these thoughts can help separate true feelings from those that are pushed on your by others. This can be done on your own, but doing so with a counselor or therapist is helpful for processing.
2.)Surround yourself with supportive people- There is no greater feeling than being around those who understand what you’re going through and will talk, listen, and support you through difficult times. Sometimes we push away these individuals not because it is intentional, but because we are overcome with emotion and distance ourselves. Try to find comfort in those who you do believe you can trust. This can be family members, church members, friends, and even animals. Look to surround yourself with happiness,
3.)Seek to change your negative picture- The outlook on self begins to change as insecurity grows. This can change the outlook that we see of our lives into a dark, negative picture. Seek to change the picture once piece at a time like a puzzle. We can become very overwhelmed with this because we want to change everything at once which can sometimes add to the insecurity when it does not happen as quickly or how we would like it to. Start with one area or matter. If your own self reflection is affecting several aspects of life, seek start with the area within your control, set a goal, and create a plan.
