3 Reminders When Aspiring To Defeat Insecurities

We're going to destruct self-hatred.

3 Reminders When Aspiring To Defeat Insecurities

Do you ever avoid social interactions because you are experiencing an incredible amount of doubt about the way you look? Do you ever look in the mirror and pick apart your face with the belief that you are immensely flawed? Do you feel an obsessive craving to compare yourself to every beautiful person you see? Do you hide your face underneath layers of makeup because you are afraid the world will criticize the natural you?


You are finding it hard to go a day without destroying your esteem because you are too busy carrying the burden of hate directed towards yourself. There is a way to form your mind into accepting who you are rather than attempting to change it. You must strive to become comfortable in your own skin, and realize that in order to do this it will be a tedious process. One that many are too lazy to try. Understand that YOU CAN GIVE YOURSELF THE NEEDED CAPABILITY. Realize that the wicked thoughts are in control because you have accepted them to be. Take back the strength that is being used to critically degrade you, and maneuver it to your advantage in order to receive help when invading the dark part of your mind.


While struggling to create peace in a place that weighs you unbelievably down, remind yourself that the fight will be worth it. It is necessary to sacrifice emotion in order to rescue yourself from your own judgment. When you feel yourself itching to insult your reflection, attack this urge. When you begin analyzing other people's features that are in contrast of your own, attack this urge. You can only escape your own thoughts if you BELIEVE it is possible. There is a way to push past your never-ending painful efforts to confront your blemishes. You simply must seek to explore your mindful talents that will show you an uplifting light when you find yourself in the shadows of anxiety. Self-confidence, self-worth, self-acceptance cannot be bought, it must be found internally.


Stop expecting that you will have fixed the problem of insecurity in a week, a month, or even several months. Timing is crucial in your potential to heal. This will be a journey of hardship and struggle that you must be WILLING to endure. It is required that in order to take the next steps in the action of escaping such a low self-esteem, you must give it your all, without an ounce of hesitation. This is something you must handle on a day to day basis. At times it will seem like a new insecurity develops in the blink of an eye and you are unable to handle it, but with great practice, you will master shutting out the thoughts that have made it impossible for you to love yourself.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
