What is your Number 1 Insecurity? ARE YOU BRAVE ENOUGH?

MPHill (@everymorningbornfromtheashes) 8 years, 9 months ago

Mine is that people will think less of me if I take only what I am capable of doing.

Please share of of your insecurities. As it is an enriching process in understanding yourself, and maybe shed light to others that don’t know you :)

Being asked this question. It is a vicious cycle.

That I am ignorant of the protocol and manipulative tactics people use to fit in socially

My greatest insecurity is probably my fear of rejection. I have let this eat me up and burn me many times in the past and I have had plenty of trouble overcoming this.

@everymorningbornfromtheashes, every time I take my glasses off red laser beams shoot out of my eyes until I put them back on.

@anjelica, Yeah it fuckin sucks. The only thing cool about it is that I have a tattoo on it which says “OK”, and when I get an erection it says “OKLAHOMA”.

I don’t have any. That’s the number one insecurity I have. I’m not normal. I’m just completely satisfied with who I am and out of boredom I create my own insecurities whenever I wish.

@chodebalm, You think that’s bad? My balls are so saggy that I have to tuck them into my tube socks. It’s really quite the site in summer when I’m wearing gym shorts.

I have OCD so I often get pretty irrational insecurities. What’s most frustrating is knowing that what you’re thinking isn’t true but your mind manages to argue with you until you don’t know what to believe! Can get pretty annoying!

@staylucky, @nikkif, Ahhhh I was about to say. Ruminating thoughts…I totally understand where you guys are coming from. That was one of my largest ‘problems’ throughout my whole life.

Nikki F. (107) (@nikkif) 8 years, 9 months ago ago

@ojai how did you overcome it? cause you said it ‘was’, so i’m assuming you’ve found a way past it. it seriously impedes the enjoyment of my day to day life and i’ve been trying everything to get out of this funk.

Matthew (1,127) (@ojai) 8 years, 9 months ago ago

@nikkif, Well, let me paint a little picture. Growing up I always had terrible anxiety, which usually goes hand in hand with depression and ruminating thoughts. Any little thing would send me on a whirlwind adventure of truly ugly ruminating thoughts. I would be so damn analytical and self critical over every single thing that happened to me and every single thought that passed through my head. Picked apart everything around me, crammed it into my skull and would constantly be facing a vicious cycle of thoughts. I couldn’t just calm down and collect my thoughts. Thinking about calming down would be just yet another thing for me to tear myself apart over.

I still have ruminating thoughts but the difference now is it simply isn’t a ‘problem’ of mine anymore. I learned to love it and use it to my advantage as much as possible now. Think about it this way…you know how powerful and overwhelming those ruminating thoughts can be? Well, flip it. You’re the one thinking it. Sure, life is uncomfortable at times. It’s never going to be a piece of cake, there are a lot of negative things out there that you’ll think about sometimes. I believe it’s a matter of taking control, being patient and loving yourself. What do you want for yourself? If the answer is to calm your mind, cancel out those negative ruminating thoughts and be happy then all you need to be is confident. Be confident that you are the master of your reality. The most important part of this all? LAUGH ABOUT IT! Think about our place in the universe. This existence is overwhelming. So, laugh it up. You don’t want to spend your time kicking your own ass with every single thought you think. This life is so immense, so intricate and so much larger than us. It may be hard to take it all in and just ‘be ok with it’ but think about it…we’re all in it together. No matter what happens, everybody is in this life thing together. I’ve learned to laugh about how silly it can be if we take it so serious.

“When you run after your thoughts, you are like a dog chasing a stick: every time a stick is thrown, you run after it. Instead, be like a lion who, rather than chasing after the stick, turns to face the thrower. One only throws a stick at a lion once.”
