Don’t accept insecurities

In a time like this when social media is at the center of everything we do. It not only makes us seem narcissistic, but, it also gives us a higher value of self. Post a picture and get thousands of likes and views, that can have you feeling like you’re the best thing since slice bread. Yes we love the likes and the praise, but what about the negative comments how should we deal with the negative comments?

How do we deal with the negative comments not just on social media? But in general. Sometimes the negativity are other people’s way of expressing their insecurities. Quite often, people have the tendency to project their feelings unto others. If you are lucky, you may receive some positive energy from their projections, but if not, it’s fear, insecurity, anger, resentment and a whole host of negativity that will be projected unto you.

A lot of times people say that what others say or think about them doesn’t matter. It really shouldn’t matter but, the reality is that, what people have to say about you matters. This is true unless you have really created a mindset that rejects outside opinions. This is possible only with a very strong self confidence and a strong belief in yourself and knowing who you are. ” word is wind” I used to hear that a lot when I was growing up. It was later on in life that I realized that words can be very heavy and that it has the power to weigh you down. Sometimes no matter how strong of a person you are, there are some words that will play on your insecurities. Yes, everyone has insecurities, sometimes small and sometimes big. One of the things that I have realized, is that people can only relate to you based on what they know and how they feel about a situation. So if you share something that you want to do with someone and they have insecurities about that situation; then it is only natural, that they are going to project their feelings unto to you. It is up to you to know that someone else’s feelings or thoughts are not yours. Do not allow yourself to accept anybody’s insecurities as your own reason for failure.

live for you, don’t be held back by the insecurities of others . Make your own mistakes and learn from them.

  1. Very true words! But then most of us are only plain humans with no broad knowledge of what it takes to hurt our fellow humans, manly because we are all individulas with very different levels of self esteem risking to make an asshole of ourselves in public (Like Mr Grump does on every opportunity these days?!) 🙂
    And – that is why I only deal in ‘images of nature’ these days! At my blog you might find nearly 8000 of them – nearly all in ‘full screen’. Please enjoy!

  2. Please do! And in order to make it a bit easier to find your way around, I suggest you take time to google ‘Norwegian counties’. Once you have learned something about their geographic locations, please enter my ‘INDEX’, and you will most likely be able to find what you are looking for in seconds. The alternative is ‘searching through my archives at random’ (which might take months! 🙂 )

  3. I have never heard “words are wind”. That is a good way to view attempted blows to the ego. As an adult, I’ve not yet been fazed by negative words from strangers, but certain words from mouths of loved ones can still pack a punch. I’ll try to keep in mind, if it comes up, that the wind their blowing my way just stinks terribly & one day the air will clear : )

  4. I agree that if you are insecure, then others’ words will most definitely affect you. I lived like this for a while. It wasn’t until I read The Four Agreements that I realized, “what others have to say about you have nothing to do with you.” I think this is Agreement #2. It’s usually (as you’ve pointed out) a projection of themselves.
