Calling them "insecurities" misses the mark...

Updated: Apr 14

The term ‘insecurity’ has always sat uncomfortably with me. I’ll tell you why…

I think that calling them ‘insecurities’ normalises the longevity of whatever you are feeling insecure about. When they have become normalised, they have a home. When they have a home, they become your property. When they become your property, you own them. And not in a positive way!

Instead of calling them ‘insecurities,’ try and think of them differently:

Calling them ‘insecurities’ misses the mark. They are conditional belief systems intent on perpetuating our disempowerment. You are an absolute warrior every time you break free of them.

If you rename them ‘limiting belief systems’, this doesn’t cement longevity. In fact, the term identifies an area of work that needs addressing. If you call them ‘limiting’, that signifies something that is/or has the capacity to become debilitating. If you have identified this, you have a motivation and focus on creating positive change in your life. In most cases, this won’t just be positive for you, but it will be positive for the people in your life too. Double win.
