What are insecurities and how do they apply to your life?

Insecurities are defined by Websters New World Dictionary (2018), as uncertainty or anxiety about oneself; lack of confidence; the state of being open to danger or threat; lack of protection (Agnes 2018).

Insecurity is a feeling of uncertainty, a lack of confidence in your abilities. Insecurity is negative and it means you are not confident, at all. If you are not confident you open yourself up to danger.

Confidence is the opposite of insecure. 

Confidence means you trust yourself, and your abilities. If you are not confident, then you do not have courage! If you do not have confidence, that also means, you don’t know your worth. Confidence is the key to any success.

Do you understand what insecurities are yet? Do you understand how they apply to your life?

Your insecurities are hindering you from your purpose in life, that’s how they apply. Your insecurities, mean you don’t trust yourself, you don’t know your worth! That means, you are hindering yourself from your purpose, what you are destined to become.

You can become insecure about something at any point in your life. But, most insecurities come from experiences from your past. Insecurities can come from a trauma, rejection, failure, loneliness, social anxiety, or negative beliefs about yourself.

Insecurities can even come from childhood experiences or maybe having a critical parent or a dependent parent. Insecurities can also come from the letdown moments in your life.  Insecurities are negative energy and a complete waste of time. You should release that insecure mindset.

Ask yourself what are you insecure about, in your life? What section in your life, do you not have 100% confidence in? Where are you lacking trust at?  Is it a relationship? Is it a friendship? Is it a career? Is it in your finances? Is it emotional? Is it physical? What insecurities are you currently facing?

How can you stop being insecure?

Let things go! Be strong and know who you are! Become confident! Change your mindset, and know that you are worthy of your purpose!

I encourage you to release your insecurities, and be confident in who you are! You were born for a purpose, do not continue to let the pains of your past, hinder you from your future! Change your approach and take responsibility for YOU! Stop being insecure!

Grow into your greatness with confidence.


“It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change, there is power”

Alan Cohen

“Anger is a manifestation of a deeper issue… and that, for me, is based on insecurity, self-esteem, and loneliness”
