How often have I tried to appear confident, when I was not?
How often did I try to hide, what I really felt?
I have spent many years trying to fit in, trying to hide, trying to appear as someone I am not.
What did I get out of it?
More tension, more frustration, more insecurities, more anxiety, more depressive moods.
Yes, everything I didn’t want to have I got more of.
So I tried to hide it, even more,
tried to appear even more confident,
tried to fit in even more,
and it only made me feel worse.
I found myself in a vicious circle without a door to break out of.
At that time I had no idea, that it was easier than I thought to get out of it.

Here are 3 practical tips to overcome feelings of self-doubt and insecurity:
Challenge Your Negative Self-Talk:
Our inner critic can be one of the biggest sources of insecurity. To overcome it, you need to become aware of your negative self-talk and challenge it. When you notice negative thoughts creeping in, try to reframe them in a more positive or realistic way. For example, if you find yourself thinking "I'll never be good enough," try replacing it with "I'm still learning and growing, and that's okay."
Taking care of your physical, emotional, and mental well-being can help boost your confidence and reduce feelings of insecurity. Make self-care a priority by getting enough rest, eating a balanced diet, exercising regularly, and taking time for activities that bring you joy and relaxation. When you feel good about yourself, you're more likely to feel confident and secure in your own skin.
Build Supportive Relationships:
Surrounding yourself with positive and supportive people can help counteract feelings of insecurity. Seek out friends and loved ones who uplift and encourage you, and avoid those who bring you down or make you feel worse about yourself. Also, consider seeking professional support from a therapist or coach who can provide personalized guidance and tools for building confidence and overcoming insecurity.
