Everyone feels a little unsure at times. As humans, we constantly think, and some of our thoughts can be filled with doubt. This can lead to thoughts of insecurity. Too much insecurity can lead to other problems — in relationships and in your everyday life. However, there are ways you can work through your insecure thoughts and live life more confidently.
Insecurity is a feeling of inadequacy not being good enough and uncertainty. It produces anxiety about your goals, relationships, and ability to handle certain situations. Everybody deals with insecurity from time to time. It can appear in all areas of life and come from a variety of causes.
It might stem from a traumatic event, patterns of experience, social conditioning learning rules by observing othersor local environments such as school, work, or home. It can also stem from general instability. People who experience unpredictable upsets in daily life are more likely to feel insecure about ordinary resources and routines. On the other hand, insecurity can have no definite, external cause. Instead, it can appear as a quirk of personality or brain chemistry.
Understanding the nature of insecurities can help you manage your own and offer others the support they need. There are almost limitless areas of potential insecurity. Moreover, insecurity often bleeds over from one area of life into another. However, there are some types of insecurity that appear frequently. Attachment theory originated out of a desire to connect the attachment patterns of early childhood to later relationship patterns and expectations. Job insecurity occurs when you are anxious about your continued employment or about the continuation of certain benefits attached to your employment.
It can be triggered by anxiety over your own job performance or anxiety over factors beyond your control, such as the economy, industry trends, workplace conflict, or the danger of company restructuring or failure. High rates of unemployment and temporary work increase job insecurity on a national scale and contribute to widespread mental health problems.
A common source of insecurity is body image.
Many people feel insecure about the way they look and question whether they measure up to an imposed ideal. There is no necessary connection between actual body health or appearance and body insecurity. People of all body types can experience this type of insecurity. Another common type of insecurity surrounds the way we are perceived by our peers and the ease with which we interact with them. This insecurity can be a recurring, low-level problem or can blossom into full-blown social anxiety disorder or social phobia. s of insecurity are as variable as the condition itself, but there are some common tendencies you can look out for.
One of insecurity is low self-esteem or negative self-image, particularly when that image seems to be inconsistent with external observation. Low self-esteem means you think badly about yourself or your abilities. It can lead to other problems, especially concerning mental health. Talk to a doctor if your self-esteem is very low. Because the measurement of self-esteem generally relies on self-report, insecurity can lead to superficial self-esteem.
People with insecurity often want to appear secure, and their explicit comments may be at odds with their automatic responses to certain stimuli. The act of faking then reinforces the social insecurity. It stems from the sensation that you or your performance is never enough.
It can appear as a manifestation of insecurity in any area of life but is frequently found in cases of job insecurity and body insecurity. Eating disordersfor example, often appear along with both harmful perfectionism and attachment insecurities. Social insecurity can lead people to avoid social interactions, isolating themselves. Sometimes these people prefer to interact virtually in internet situations they feel they can control. Attachment insecurities often result in problematic attachment styles, or dysfunctional approaches to relationships.
The two most common are anxious or avoidant attachments. Anxious attachment styles are characterized by emotional dependence relying on someone else for your emotional well-beinga fear of being aloneand fantasies of perfect relationships that can never be fulfilled.
Avoidant attachment styles also stem from insecurity but go in the other direction. People with this style tend to keep relationships superficial and disengage from more intimate connections. Job insecurity not having a stable job can work to motivate some people, but it more often in poorer performances. It can lead to absenteeism avoiding workturnover intention wanting to change jobs soon after startingdisengagement from colleagues and in group projects, and poor work attitudes.
Depression or Anxiety. All types of insecurity can lead to decreased mental wellness. Depressive or anxious behavior or thinking is often an effect of insecurity, particularly when that insecurity produces or is accompanied by erroneous beliefs and patterns of thought.
Occasional insecurity is a natural part of life. For deeper and more longer-lasting feelings of insecurity, however, professional therapists can help you sort through your emotions and develop strategies for everyday life. Broad and meaningful social networks — friendshipsrelationships with coworkers, and more — help to lessen both insecurity and its negative effects. Having a wide circle of friends and many close connections allows you to develop the tools and confidence to engage in deeper adult relationships.
Developing good friendships both in and out of the workplace also has a proven record of success as a coping strategy that helps prevent job insecurity, depression, and general anxiety. People who disengage from colleagues in response to job insecurity more frequently suffer in their mental health and job performance.
While having an overly trusting behavior creates its own problems, ask yourself if you have any reason to distrust expressions of affection or liking from others. People with insecurities sometimes express doubt and perceive rejection in everything from partner relationships to new acquaintances.
These expressions can be self-fulfilling. Practice taking displays of interest at face value, something that can be easier in more casual relationships. You can build up the confidence to accept deeper affection and intimacy. Mental Health Reference.
