Today, I wanted to talk about insecurities… I am not sure why I haven’t talked about this before actually, this is definitely a topic meaty enough to feed a handful of episodes. I don’t think I know a single person who doesn’t question themselves and their worth constantly. I don’t think there is anything inherently wrong with questioning yourself on a regular basis – it is a good way to keep yourself in check – but you have to make sure you do it in a kind, non-judgemental way. I guess this is the key to dealing with insecurities and I could possibly just end this right here by telling you this: be kind to yourself, be compassionate to yourself, be gentle and go easy on yourself.
Why are we so hard on ourselves all the time? To try and switch things up, for the next few days, every time you think something negative about your appearance or your mind, imagine you are talking to your best friend. When you look in the mirror, compliment your appearance. Assert yourself and accept yourself, see if you can turn it into a new habit… I will try too.
