We must stop comparing our show reel to another person’s. Their show reel isn’t ours, so it would be wrong to compare ourselves, as if it were.
Our lives may not start out perfectly and we may end up living with insecurities, but as we continue to compare, we will spend a lifetime drawing comparisons. Whilst we’re doing that, we will never rid ourselves of our insecurities.
We get to choose whether we lose them of course, but to do that we must start to believe in ourselves, believe in our abilities, believe we’re good enough, distance ourselves from the negativity and work on strengthening our inner core. Move away and move on from those who spend their lives bringing us down, making us feel guilty for how we feel.
Insecurities are nothing more than irrational, but because we don’t stop to look at our lives, what we have, or who we have around us, it’s easy to see why those insecurities stay irrational and we stay insecure. Insecure feelings on the inside will always mirror how we cope on the outside.
So how do we get past our insecurities?
Well we should use reflection as a tool to quantify, analyse and bring clarity back into our lives. We must begin to look at our life from the outside in, as if we were looking at another person’s life, reading their story back. Be honest about what you see and own what is yours.
We must choose to see ourselves and our experiences head on and only keep what belongs to us and let go of the rest. By looking at ourselves objectively, we can begin to build new sturdier foundations.
The more we continue to believe in ourselves, the more we shall continue to emotionally grow, the less insecure we will stay; that when our inner core heals, our insecurities will lessen and the comparisons will stop.
