Someone or something is paying for our insecurity somewhere.
No one is perfect. We all deal with inconsistencies. But I think one of the most dangerous things to be is insecure.
Insecurity is subtle.
The truth is that someone or something is paying for our insecurity somewhere.
It may be our marriage, our team, our organization, our department, our friends, our children, or our future. But let it be known that it would be nearly impossible to slip through life without our insecurities having some effect on those nearest to us.
So, here are a few things to help you identify if you are insecure:
1 – You’re controlled by what others think of you. You are held hostage by the opinions of others.
2 – You’re territorial. You don’t play well with others.
3 – You’re afraid of being transparent. You fear being yourself because your security is in the perception you portray to those around you.
4 – You overcompensate. You need to be noticed…so you work harder.
5 – You’re critical of others. You hold others to unrealistic standards.
6 – You’re overly sensitive. You cannot handle conflict or criticism.
7 – You’re defensive. You feel misunderstood but in reality your insecurity has blinded you.
8 – You’re offended by this blog. I’m just joking….maybe.
