My new (weird-ish) method of dealing with insecurity

For awhile now, I've been wanting to write a post about insecurity. Insecurity is something I've struggled with my entire life - I can't really remember a time when I didn't feel at least a little insecure. 

When I got to college, my insecurities faded away a bit. I mean, they always kind of sit around with you in the back of your mind, but for me, I was able to explore and figure out who I wanted to be in school, and therefore I got to feel more comfortable in my own skin.

Lately, post-college me has been a little bit insecure. I could give you many reasons why, but for the sake of privacy and not making this post a thousand words long, I'll leave it at that. I've just not been feeling myself lately. And I think we can all relate to that.

I have many methods of dealing with insecurity, but I recently tried something new that I actually found to be super beneficial, and I wanted to share it with you guys.

This probably won't work if you're super young and are devastatingly insecure, but you might want to give it a shot anyway!

What I decided to do was sit down and make a list of all the things I'm insecure about currently or don't like about myself.

Yeah, I'm aware of how horrible of an idea that sounds. But trust me!

Anyway, I made my list and I reviewed them. Then, I made a separate list with ways I could cope with or change each thing on my other list. 

You know what I found? That every little thing I'm insecure about or don't like, I can change. I'm in complete control of those things. And I don't know about you, but that makes me feel a hell of a lot better. (I promise I'm not a control freak ... all the time)

And since then, I've been implementing some of those methods I came across and I've been feeling much better. I'm not 100% yet, but I think I'm on the right track.

I'm not gonna lie - I mostly want to share this for my own wellbeing. If I put this out into the universe, it'll help keep me on track. But I'm hoping that someone reading this might find some benefits to this also. 

I honestly could write novels about this, but I want to keep this short and sweet because I have plans for upcoming insecurity-related posts, and I just can't give away all my insight and surpassing knowledge, right?

Anyway, let me know what you think and if you try it out, let me know if it works for you. If it doesn't, well, don't hold me accountable. :)

  1. This is such an awesome idea! I'm a big lover for writing things down and I can see myself doing this!!! It helps to get all the insecurities out of your mind and on a piece a paper just to really map out and see is this insecurity really worth it, how can I change it, etc. This is a wonderful addition to your site I cant wait to see more!
