Celadon Posted November 10, 2004 Share Posted November 10, 2004 This isn't an post looking for advice, just wanted to share some thoughts tonight. You know, it seems like a lot of people feel insecure - including me sometimes. And insecurity makes people do stupid things, like when a woman hangs on to a bf only because she's afraid of being alone, or when someone who has a s.o. flirts with someone else anyway. I was just realizing that I let other people's behavior bug me when I myself feel insecure. But you know what helps? Saying affirmations about yourself. Then it matters less what other people do or say. AFfirmations help you realize what is the truth about yourself - like you're a loyal friend, or good at putting on parties, or someone who is creative. I'm big into respect, and when someone is selfish it bugs the heck out of me. (Not like I'm perfect, but I'm just saying...) But by focusing my strengths, then it's like a friend's disrespect doesn't matter as much. Then it's not like a reflection on me, but it's their problem. Anyway, I was just thinking about this stuff. Hope maybe it helps someone. Anyone else have thoughts on how to feel more secure, feel free to add 'em! Quote Link to comment
