It is very thoughtful if you are in a position where you can understand that your insecurities are intricately linked with your mental health. They never aid you though! Carrying your insecurities along can be a dangerous threat to your mental health, they will affect your healthy self-esteem, and they have the quickest shot at your confidence. As inevitable as these insecurities are, one should work their way out of them. It is not that one has them and one does not, It is more like working on them and hiding them.
Try these healthy tips to start with!
Accept and Approve!
The first step you could take in your path to kill the insecurities is to accept them. If you think there is something that’s dragging you behind, scrutinize it, and accept that part of yourself. It could be a physical, mental, or intellectual notion, after all, none is perfect. Do not seek others’ approval, practice approving yourself.
Take a Different Standpoint
Let’s suppose that your friend reached out to you with her insecurities, you would absolutely make sure that you take a perspective that will make her feel good about herself/himself. Is it bad to contemplate the same standpoint when it comes to your insecurities? Make sure you take a positive angle and let the optimism work its magic!
No Blame Game
If you think blaming someone or most probably blaming yourself would make your insecurities go away, then you are just living in denial. No one is to take the blame for your insecurities, not even yourself. Stop pondering over them and embrace joy with what you have. Acknowledge and be thankful for what you have. Contentment is the key sometimes.
It is always good to share when it comes to mental health problems, let it be a friend who is a good listener, or a professional help would also do.
