If you are asking yourself how can I stop feeling insecure than you’re in the right place.
I received questions over and over again on Quora.com that I’ve listed below for you. Most of the questions I get are about what I talk about on the blog. These questions below will help you to stop feeling insecure about yourself. Quora is a safe space where you can ask professionals and others who use their personal experiences to advise others. We all experience insecurity from time to time in our lives. Some of us more than others. Also, in different areas of our lives might make us feel less than.
Let’s tackle some ways you can stop feeling insecure about yourself and how to change that.
How can I stop feeling insecure about myself? I keep comparing myself to this other girl and I don’t feel as pretty as her.
Learn to love You for You inside so you can appreciate what you see when you look in the mirror. Comparing yourself to another communicates to yourself and others that you aren’t enough and you are enough. Instead of communicating with yourself that you aren’t good enough say what you love about yourself every single time a negative thought comes into play.
I stress changing your mindset and being a positive reinforcement in your life because do you ever notice women who change their appearance and then they still tell themselves they’re not good enough? Such as Kim Kardashian’s of the world.
Reminder 1 // We are all uniquely beautiful inside and out.
Reminder 2 // Practice self-compassion
Reminder 3 // Practice gratitude
Reminder 4 // Remember that everyone has their own path, focus and honor your path.
Reminder 5 // Instead of seeing what you lack to see what you can add.
As a new mom I love this metaphor, treat yourself with the kindness and patience you would treat your child. If you wouldn’t tell your child another child is better than him/her then why say it to yourself?
You can lose weight, change your hair color, change your wardrobe. That is the easy part. Learn to love You for You inside so you can appreciate what you see when you look in the mirror. Take care of yourself because you are love.
Just recently, I stepped out of the shadows and went back into business for myself as I did years ago. I am extremely proud of myself for creating and selling courses. I am putting myself out there. Before I would stay in the shadows. Proud accomplishment — stepping outside my comfort zone.
If there was only one piece of advice I could give that would help youit would be to practice replacing negative self-talk with positive self-talk. You’re going to feel insecure from time to time you’re not alone when it comes to that feeling. When you start to feel insecure about yourself it is your job to motivate, empower, and care for yourself and remind yourself of your greatness.
Yes, train yourself to think, know, believe, and feel LOVE.

You must create new habits and beliefs in order for you to walk into the new you. Know that you are worthy of change. Know that now, in this present moment, is always the right time to make a change. Taking a chance in life is all about walking by faith. Believing in yourself will allow you to see the path you desire before you.
Confidence. Looks are subjective. What looks “good” to one person might not look “good” to another. To be concerned with looks is also to be concerned with others (friends, family, or society) approves of. That’s my take on the subject.
I will share with you what I would do and won’t do after I’ve been rejected. I wouldn’t let it define me. You are more than a NO. One door shut you go open another is my motto. Some move forward based on faith. That is part of it but not the whole pie. I believe you must take action. Were you playing it safe? Can you write a better essay?
JK Rowling Harry Potter author was rejected by 12 publishers and didn’t quit. You want it bad enough you will get the college that is for you. Don’t give up on yourself no matter how many NOs you get. The right YES will come alone. Harry Potter made 7.7 billion. All 12 publishers are kicking themselves.
Music is very uplifting when it is the right songs. It is also messaging that our ego doesn’t attach itself to. .are 10 songs I recommend listening to when you’re feeling down and need to build yourself up. I have the YouTube videos embedded on this page so you can listen
A recent one not on this list is Mary J. Blidge – Happy and My Life is two songs that are very motivational and raises my frequency. Because of this question, I will do another blog post calls Self-love playlists or something. 🙂 Thanks for the spark of inspiration.

I agree self-esteem is about how you feel about yourself. Sometimes even when everyone around you you’re enough, beautiful, intelligent worthy it is enough if you don’t believe it. We must work on our inside before the outside for a lasting change. Continue to support your wife by encouraging her to do more for herself. Spend time alone, self-reflect, care for herself, get to know herself and love herself.
Encourage her to join a yoga or dance class. We feel better when we move our bodies. I wrote this article about feeling good enough this week. I also created a 7-day course to help folks love themselves and tap into their power .
How can I develop a high self-control and self-discipline even when I am alone for long periods of time with nobody to be accountable to?
Checklists, calendars, and reminder notifications will not work if you don’t allow it to work. I recommend you go into a Facebook group online and find a partner who can chat with you weekly and you two can support one another. When I started working for myself as a designer after college, I joined a business group and we chatted weekly. That held me accountable.
Your a mom look for mom groups, productivity groups, addiction groups. You name it — it is on Facebook.
I hope you found this article about how to stop feeling insecure useful. Trust, believe, and have faith in yourself. You are worthy of greatness! xx
