Insecurities, we all have them in one form or another.
Hi everyone, welcome back to the blog! In this post we are going to compile a list of some common and uncommon insecurities and we will follow each one with a little positivity. Maybe this list can help you, face and confront your own insecurities in a positive way. You can also pull up this post during your next date night and it may spark some deep, healthy conversations with your partner! Let’s get started!
1. I’m not sure if I fit in with your family.
Try not to focus so much on people liking you. If your partner loves you, that should be all that matters.
2. I don't think your friends like me.
Ask yourself, is it really your concern if a group of people like you?
3. I don't feel intelligent enough for this conversation.
Be confident, stand behind your intellect and remember, you don’t know what you don’t know… who cares.
4. I don't think I have what it takes to achieve my dream job.
You should always try to reach for your dreams when you can! It shouldn’t matter what anyone else thinks!
5. I'm too heavy.
As long as you are healthy and you feel good, that’s the most important thing. We all come in different shapes and sizes.

9. Socienty says I should be earning a certain amout of money at my age and I'm not.
Don’t let society tell you how much you need to earn in order to be happy. If you’re happy with the amount of money you’re earning at this point in your life, then smile and keep it moving!
10. I'm just too different, no one will like me.
Being different is what makes us all so special! If people get to know the real you, they will probably love you!

Remember, clothes don’t make you who you are. There just clothes!

As long as you’re healthy, love yourself for who you are. If you want to change something about yourself……work hard and change it. It’s important that you love yourself!

15. I don't think they are going to like me for who I am.
All you can do is be yourself. It’s not your concern how anyone else feels about you!

Try having a long honest discussion with your partner and you’ll probably hear the opposite. Our partners love us for who we are.
17. I should stop doing my hobby which I love, because my associates think I'm weird.
What truly matters is that you enjoy your hobbies, not what your friends or associates think about it.
18. I don't think I have what it takes to start a business.
If you’ve crossed your “T’s" and dotted your “I's" when it comes to your business idea, then maybe it’s time to make a move! You have to believe in yourself and your mission statement.
19. I think I'm too old to go back to college.
You may never be as young as you are today so maybe you should just go for it!
20. I don't think I'm strong enough to completely open up tp my partner.
If you have a loving and caring partner by your side, they would probably love nothing more than for you to open up and show them your true self. To be completely vulnerable is such a great feeling, especially when shared with that special someone.

As you can see, there are tons of insecurities that can creep themselves into our heads. It’s all about recognizing and facing them head on! Don’t be afraid to call yourself out and ask yourself why is it that you feel the way you do. Most insecurities are just fear that we make up in our own heads. But they can also be sparked by people or businesses that don’t care about us in the first place, so why should we allow them to dictate how we feel about ourselves. Just remember, we are all great just the way we are!
