The Results of Insecurity
I'm sure you have seen or felt some of the areas where insecurity shows up in your life .. Now as you look back .. or stare at it as you look into the mirror .. it's time to turn your attention to its effects.
To start, insecure people have difficulty establishing good, lasting relationships with others. They simply cannot see how they could add value to anyone else’s life. This is a tragic loss, because every one of us needs deep and meaningful friendships to help us grow in our faith.
Also, men and women with insecurity are often seen as prideful or snobbish because they may lack the confidence to associate with others around them and it tends to cause them to withdraw from other people - which can easily be mistaken or perceived as an act of arrogance. They can thereby give the impression that they simply don’t want to be around others. What’s more, insecurity frequently leads to indecisiveness and fear. People can be so consumed with self-doubt that they can’t make any decision at all. They wonder, What if I make a mistake? Have you ever heard someone say ... "they feel like they are stuck in a rut"?
Well, so what if you make a mistake .. or wrong turn .. making mistakes is one of the best ways to learn how to do something correctly. Don’t be afraid to try. Even if you don’t succeed, you can at least rest in the fact that you did your best - or you can take this approach and ASK GOD: http://www.iaskgod.com/content/thought-conditioner-15
After a while, insecure people typically become angry. When they go so long feeling so poorly about themselves, they start to resent the success and happiness of others. Can you see how something as subtle as a lack of confidence can have a debilitating effect on one’s life? Don’t let such devastation affect your life or your relationships. Pray for the ability to recognize areas of self-doubt. And then take a step toward freedom today by asking the Lord to heal your insecurities.
