I have a big problem: my insecurities. When I tell others I feel insecure about myself, they ask my why. I'm not sure I know why, but I suspect one of the keys to feeling better about myself is for me to understand what I'm afraid of. I know I have abandonment issues — feeling like people are going to leave me and never come back; but I have never spent much time delving into why I have such a fear.
I get pretty involved in other people's lives and end up understanding myself in others' context; I becomes we. I have never been able to self-introspect in a useful manner; when I try to think about myself, often times I draw a blank, and then carry on with the motions of life.
My insecurities are irrational, I know that. I have to make an effort trying to feel good about myself. I'm nowhere there yet, but I think I'll get there, with the help and support of my friends. One of the things I thought I'd do — and I know this might sound silly — is to have a "Premshree, you are awesome because..." list and look at it everyday. Think that will work?
