Insecurity, something most of us face in one way or another. Some have insecurities about their relationships or their own body image. Some have insecurities about their social status and or their jobs. Regardless of what kind of insecurity you face it is a roadblock to happiness and a successful life. Insecurity is just a form of fear, a fear of failure or a fear of being less than you need/want to be. Fear is something we must learn to overcome and master for it can rule your life and keep you in an unhappy state. It is very hard to live a life full of fear and/or insecurities. Acceptance, Faith, Hope and self-discipline are the direct enemies of both fear and insecurities. The best route to overcoming both insecurity and fear is to learn how to embrace hope, learn to have faith in God as well as yourself and to practice self-discipline. God gives us a spirit of hope and power not of fear, the world lies to us and convinces us we have no hope and we can not conquer fear. We must put faith in the spirit God gave us and not put in the lies of our world we live in. To be honest I think we put too much value on some pretty petty and materialistic ideals, to own all the riches of this world may give you temporary gratification but nothing in this world is permanent so there is no real worth to anything in this world but for what God gives us. The love, Peace of mind and happiness God gives us will be with us for eternity and the things of this world will turn to dust in the end.
God gives us the power,a sound mind and most of all a spirit of hope.
