Insecurity

We all experience the feeling of insecurity, and the way through is to face the present moment; the reality of right now.

Our minds are wired to compare and programmed to seek control – it’s an old evolutionary tool designed to keep us safe. Unfortunately it often doesn’t work in our favor, producing critical better than / less than comparisons, and churning anxiety about what’s out of our control – which is everything besides our own behavior.

We can face reality at the very moment our insecurity and anxiety peak.

Breathe, deeply and slowly. That’s real. Notice your surroundings; feel anchored to where you are standing or sitting. That’s real.

Bring yourself back to right now – we can find comfort and grounding in the facts of the present moment (outside of our heads) rather than getting swept up in the what-ifs of insecure thoughts.
