Ten Great Ways To Feel More Secure
If there is one thing that every single person - regardless of gender identity - feels, it’s insecurity. We get insecure about our careers, our social lives, our relationships and mostly, our looks. We worry about our hair, our teeth, our clothes, our bodies - and it’s the rise of the ‘beauty standards’ out there that makes us feel more insecure than ever before. The constant fear of trying to live up to these expectations is hard to live with, and feeling insecure is often tough to handle. You want to feel more secure than ever and that means figuring out some of the best ways to make that happen.
Before we jump into them, it’s important to know that you deserve to feel secure and confident no matter where you are in your life. It’s okay to want skin tightening but also love your body. It’s okay to want to lose some weight but also love how your curves look in a wraparound dress. You are allowed to love yourself while finding opportunities to grow and that doesn't make you a hypocrite! Now, we’ve got ten great ways that you can feel more secure about yourself, and you can take any of these and run with them, or you can use them all. Either way, you deserve confidence and security - here’s how to get them.
You don't need help to fix your issues, you need help to understand how you can fix them yourself. Noone else is going to make you feel confidence that you don't currently feel. Your friends and family can’t control your emotions but they can definitely support you in yours as you feel them. Find friends and family you can trust in your expression and make them a part of your journey into changing and accepting yourself.

Having integrity and honesty in your life is going to help you to do the right thing in any situation, and you can be a good person and feel more secure that no matter where you are in life, at least you’re good to the people around you.
Your friends, your family, your career, your social life - all of these things should be looked after by you. The majority of people in the world focus far more on what isn't working rather than what is working. Instead of focusing on the things that don’t work, start looking after the things in your own world and focusing on the things that do work. The more you put emphasis on positive things in your life, the better off you’ll be.
So many people are insecure about how they look that they won’t hold the gaze of others around them, trying to hide away. Instead of hiding who you are, make a point of offering eye contact and holding the look of those around you. Get comfortable with it and you'll be able to convey emotion much more clearly.
You have to be at peace with your insecurities. Whether they are in your career or the blemishes in your skin, be at peace with them. If there are things that you can change and you want to change them, do it! Make a plan and make a list of goals that you want to achieve. Put any failures into your positive light, too, and make them work for you. You are going to be more optimistic when you do this.
Sometimes, your security and confidence comes directly from your posture. If you sit and stand straight, you’re going to look happier, feel better and you’re going to show the world that you are eliminating your insecurities one at a time.
You should take the things that make you feel insecure in your life and fight for security. Don't resign yourself to a life of believing you look ugly or aren't particularly stupid. You get to be whoever you want to be in your life because you are the director, the main star and the writer of every chapter that you write for yourself. You are wise enough to work through your discomfort, you just have to believe that you are.
Every single day, you can work on your confidence if you have the drive to do it. You will find that the more you believe in yourself, the more everyone else will believe in you, too. Work on eliminating your security and don't be afraid to demand more. You deserve more and you should strive to get it where you can.
