Is it okay to have insecurities? I am so confused. Not all of it comes from the people around me. No matter how much I try to feel good about myself. The moment I look at myself in the mirror, I feel bad. I have acne on my face, my face looks dull, I am fat and not that tall. Trust me, I have a lot of insecurities, and I just don’t know how to deal with them. My insecurities are getting the best of me. Is here anyone who can share his or her experience on how to overcome such feelings?

It is absolutely and perfectly okay to have insecurities. Everybody does, some show it ,some don’t. In my case, the most terrible thing about my insecurities were that I didn’t know I had them unless someone pointed it out. For example I have very chubby cheeks, and I didn’t think much of them until someone pointed them out,made fun of it and said to take out the gulab jamuns stuffed in my mouth! Like really ? The funny thing is I don’t even like gulab jamuns🤷🏻‍♀️😂 And it went on as a joke. And from then on, joke after joke continued. A girl from my highschool literally said my cheeks were similar to hanuman Ji’s.?!!? Like seriously? These jokes made me insecure for a very long time ,and tbh I’m still a little insecure. But not as much as I used to be, all bcz I learned that everybody has insecurities,embracing them makes you brave and beautiful,and the ones who make fun of other’s insecurities are the one’s who hide there biggest insecurities behind these jokes.
I have a hell lot of other insecurities as well, but I’ve learned with time and experience that how you see yourself is much more important than how other’s see you. If you project yourself as a strong, brave and confident person, others will see u that way. It’s just about knowing that you’re not alone.
Hope it helps💗
