Insecure is Natural Or Not?
Before that we must know what insecurity is. Insecure is a person who is not safe or comfortable will see the world as a threatening forest. Where in it there are many dangerous and selfish people. Usually insecure people feel they are not accepted, excluded, pessimistic, tend to have feelings of guilt, even to the point of feeling unhappy.
But, because of the times in the current era of social media and increasingly rapid technological developments. just by looking at people's posts on social media can trigger feelings of insecurity. For example, when you see someone's post who has a smooth face that is not spotty, or sees a post from someone who has a nice body. This can actually lead to a sense of insecurity which results in self-confidence and can affect a person's mental health.
There are several things that can make a person feel insecure, including:
Experiencing failure or rejection.
Received unfavorable ratings from others.
Wants everything to run perfectly.
So, can insecurity be fatal?
Actually insecure is okay, as long as that feeling makes you able to reach the point you want. BUT, if the insecurity has dragged on, it can be fatal, especially for a person's mental condition. And the effects can be depression, eating disorders, lack of self-confidence, anxiety, personality disorders and so on.
Then, how to over come insecurity?
As I explained, insecurity should be used as motivation for yourself to be better. An easy example is we see people who are good at counting, and we are insecure to see that person because maybe we are not good at counting. So we just use that feeling of insecurity as motivation to encourage us to be like them or even be able to.
And start also to accept yourself and get to know ourselves better, whether it's our weaknesses or strengths. Don't constantly compare yourself to others. Because everyone is different and of course has their own specialties. And keep in mind, that we are valuable.
So, is it natural that we feel insecure?
Yes. in fact, feeling insecure is very natural. However, it should not continue to happen and be felt excessively. Indeed, every human being needs a sense of insecurity to become self-motivation to be better.
In fact, sometimes someone who is insecure is often suspicious of other people and the surrounding environment. Feelings of fear and anxiety are normal and normal to occur occasionally in my opinion. But remember, don't drag on insecure.
