Christina Ricci says, “We all have insecurities, and the thing that makes them crippling is that we all have the ability to blow them up into such huge issues in our minds, that we might as well have a facial deformity.” People are smart, strong and powerful beings, but the one thing that will always bring us down is ourselves and our minds; as a result of these inner struggles ideas and future changers don't prevail in life. The only thing that comes out of insecurities are jaded views and mind sets. I here by declare myself from these insecurities.
In the erratic, high stress, and prison like environment that is the public education system, we are immersed in a pool of self doubt and uncertainty. As a high school senior the very idea of failure or not meeting up to certain standers harbor hidden insecurities. The very thought ( For most people) of standing in the middle of a crowded room to speak strikes fear in to them, but its ...view middle of the document...
Life without the chains of insecurities digging into the wrists of achievement, while whispering self hate and doubt into our minds ear, would be a better place for all.
The successful writer Jeremy Aldana says,“Insecurities have the ability to shape and mold our minds to live with everything that’s bad; like crying on the inside, while smiling on the outside…thus creating pain…” Those self doubts creates angst and bad stress which is terrible for our minds and bodies, insecurities push us down under the water of one’s fears and drowns us in our own what ifs, creating the noose that will wrap around our necks successfully causing us to sink deeper into our own self made oceans, while clinging on to the rocks of hope and goals that are always just out of reach of the hands that are beaten and over worked with the thoughts of ‘if only’ and ‘why didn’t I’ just on the tip of or minds.
Here’s my main point, I don’t want to feel bad or scared from an assignment or test, no more thoughts of ‘I’m I doing this right?!’ or ‘What if I fail and don’t graduate.’ no more run on thoughts that lead me to a depressed mood, no more stopping myself from achieving my full potential in life. I want to live life the way am suppose to, I want the freedom to go out and be truly confident without the intense feeling of fear or being judged.
We need to stop trying to live with this unwanted guest in our minds and kick em’out! The amount of things that would get done and come to life is astonishing in its self, but the only thing that is absolutely the hardest to do is come to terms with ourselves and cut the too tight noose that has been tied by our own hands, and saw through the overly thick rope made of our own self-doubt.
Yes, people are strong, smart, powerful and can be put through anything and walk away with their heads held high, but not until we declare ourselves from the none improving, humanity holding, slowly killing insecurities.
