7 Ways to Overcome Insecurity

Finally, remember that insecurity makes us self-centered in the worst way. To overcome it we have to take our minds off ourselves now and then and develop compassion for others. In helping people we not only make a difference in their lives, but we begin to see ourselves as giving instead of always reacting out of need.

I promise you that even though you think you are a lost cause today, if you commit to undertaking the above steps without condemming yourself for not being perfect at them, it won't be too long before you realize you are becoming the person you always wished you could be.
