Don’t Let Insecurities Eat You Alive

I’ve had some insecurities come up recently.. some I’ve dealt with before and some very new ones. All in all they are NOT attractive and I don’t have any time or space for them. Have I always had this attitude towards them? No.. I have struggled for weeks trying to decide where they were coming from and yes looking for something to blame.. No I’m not proud of it, but it is what it is.

But today I have come to the conclusion that I won’t let them take over my mind any longer. I am stronger than this. I’ve overcome the obstacles before and am damn well capable of doing it again.

So how do we get rid of that nasty voice in our heads telling us all these awful things? We get to the root. Sometimes this can be easier said then done.. I know. It’s hard to take responsibility and look deep inside to get rid of the “infection”. But when it’s healed, how much better you will feel and the freed up space for all the good things coming to you makes it all well worth it.

Write down your feelings. Each and every one of them. When did they start appearing in your mind? Was something happening in your life to start the cycle and spiral of negative thoughts? Do you have ANY actual evidence of this thought being true? Or are you worrying about something that you really don’t know whether has happened or not?

Call out the ego.. Yes the ego is trying to keep you safe, but the binds don’t always benefit you. Like the argument with your spouse that you are having in your head, but really isn’t happening. Yep been there. Ego, we appreciate all of your opinions and input, but you aren’t needed on this matter. Thank you.

Rewrite your truth and surrender. Give up all sense of control (I know this is difficult, but you can do this). Trust that whatever happens, happens. It doesn’t happen to harm you, but only to help you grow and get to exactly where you need to be. Even if there is temporary discomfort. It will all work out. It always does. Pray for guidance and help. And rewrite your truth as you now see it. Look for the things all around you that you are grateful for.

Repeat until the ego shuts the hell up.

I love you. You are not alone.
