Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live my friend. In the past week or so I have been feeling a bit insecure as a person. In my discomfort, I found myself motivated to examine the reasons why I felt insecure. In my examination, I discovered several root causes. As I looked closer, I discovered how these cause precipitate my insecurity.
Through taking the time to examine these cause and effects, I have discovered what precipitates my insecurity. In the process, I have been able to own my triggers. Consequently, I have been empowered through my insecurities. Let me share with you what I discovered through my process of examination.
Because I did not see the harvest from my efforts, I became insecure. Upon further examination, I discovered that I became insecure because I had become emotionally invested in specific outcomes. When I did not see the outcomes — that I was expecting to receive — I became discouraged, disheartened and insecure in my abilities.
Because I began looking outside of myself and my relationship with God to complete and satisfy my life, I became discouraged, disheartened and insecure in each of my relationships. As my discomfort increased, so did my expectations. As my expectations increased, so did my propensity to want to blame other people for not meeting my expectations.
Because I was not receiving validation and inclusion from organizations, groups and associations I began to question the viability of Second Chance to Live. Because I began to question the viability of Second Chance to Live I began to question my mission and vision. As I questioned my mission and vision, I began to question my effectiveness.
By examining the reasons for why I felt insecure, I was able to own my insecurity. By owning my insecurity (ies) I was able to look for solutions and stop waiting on people and outcomes to “make” me feel secure. By doing so I regained my security.
These are the solutions that I found by examining my insecurities.
- Do the foot work and let go of the outcomes. One plants, another waters, but it is God who causes the growth. Keep planting seeds and don’t look for the harvest.
- Look to God as my source. Cultivate a relationship with myself and keep the focus on myself. When I have the urge to blame someone, I need to look to myself. I need to quiet myself and own the responsibility for my restlessness, irritability and discontent.
- Remember that organizations, groups and associations are not my qualifiers. At the right time, God will open the doors. The doors that are meant to be opened.
