Do you struggle with insecurities? If you said yes you’re in good company with the majority of the world, because we all do in some way or another!
Amy Young is a life coach that doesn’t fit the standard cookie-cutter mold approach toward wellbeing, so hopefully you can handle a few jokes and humor along with your advice! In this video Amy shares her tips on how to make friends with your insecurities in order to lead a happier, healthier life.
Maybe you’re insecure about your appearance. Perhaps you’re insecure about your past or any other combination of self-proclaimed flaws.
According to Amy the key isn’t trying to get rid of your insecurities, but rather learning to embrace them and recognize that they’re a part of the package deal that makes up who you are. You don’t have to love your insecurities, but you do have to coexist with them because they are part of you whether you like it or not.
So instead of trying to hide them (not a good look), or apologizing for them all of the time (also not a good look), focus your energy on learning to accept them. There is only one you in the entire world. There are plenty of people that will accept you exactly the way you are, and you will increase your odds of having lasting relationships by becoming comfortable in your own skin.
Comparing yourself to other people won’t get you anywhere.
So embrace your big nose. Embrace your acne. Embrace your body that might not look like the celebrities on TV. Embrace your lisp. Embrace your funny laugh or crooked teeth. Embrace your scars. Embrace anything and everything about yourself that you might see as different.
Your imperfections may end up being your significant other's favorite things about you in a future relationship. You heard it here first.
Just because people in your life up to this point haven’t made you feel as special as you are, does not mean you aren’t special! Just because a past boyfriend or girlfriend didn’t see your full worth does not mean you are worthless!
If you are insecure make it a goal to gain confidence in your flaws. The people who matter most in your life now, and in the future, will love you regardless of them.
