The next, and probably biggest thing insecurity does:
Insecurity makes me INWARDLY FOCUSED.
It is selfishness at its core. When you’re insecure all the focus is on one person: YOU.
“I can’t do this… what will they think of me?”
“I’m sorry I’m causing so many problems.”
“I know I’m just a big burden…”
“I’m not good enough.”
“No one likes me.”
Add your own…
Insecurity is selfishness. I’m going to take that a step further. Insecurity is pride.
“Whoa, back the train up… you’re saying insecurity is pride? No way. I’m not prideful? What do I have to be prideful about? I have a poor self image. There’s no way I’m prideful!”
Oh, no? Think about this: Any preoccupation with SELF is pride. Whether or not your self image is puffed up or deflated. If our focus is ourselves we are prideful. We are selfish. We are insecure.
Do you agree? Disagree? What sentence would you add up there?
