Hey guys! Welcome back. It’s been a long time since I did a Coffee Chat, so I thought I would do one today. The topic I chose to talk about is insecurities because I know there are many of us who struggle with having them. I know in the past few months I have been dealing with all of mine. I think one of my biggest insecurities is not feeling good enough. That’s why I give up on so many dreams and goals. I just don’t feel like I am good enough to be doing that thing. So I give up and just move on to something else.
These past few months I have been reflecting on the past few years in college and also looking ahead on the next year or so of my life. This year I will graduate from college, move to a new place, and start a life. This time next year I will be sitting in a completely different place. The crazy thing is I have no idea what I will be doing. Insecurity comes into that when I start doubting myself. I limit myself based on what I think of myself. I limit my dreams by thinking I can’t do something or I’m not good enough.
Instead of feeding my insecurities, I need to starve them and start giving myself more credit than I do. I need to start focusing on the positives and learn how to be myself. I need to be more comfortable with my dreams and take the steps I need to reach them. It doesn’t have to be popular and people don’t have to understand it, but I need to do what it best for me. My insecurities are weakened when I remember my dreams and how amazing it would be to live that life. So that’s what I need to do.
I don’t share my dreams or goals with too many people because I have learned from experience and through other people that sometimes it’s best to keep things to yourself. I have learned to filter what I tell other people. I don’t have to share anything with anyone and I like that feeling. I enjoy being independent and knowing that I have full control over my story. It helps me feel empowered.
That’s how I deal with my insecurities. Both inner and outer insecurities can be weakened by taking appropriate and necessary steps to change my life. The closer I get to living my dream life, the happier and more successful I will be. So today is day one of me working to reach that goal. I hope you will come along on this journey with me. I will be updating you on here as well as on social media, so be sure to follow me everywhere.
