Quotes tagged “Insecurities”
Trusting in life, seeing the goodness in the people around us and staying present in our day-to-day actions will draw us toward love. We'll feel like we are flowing with life, things run smoothly and there will be a deep sense of calm beneath the ups and downs of our life situation. Moving towards love will always lead to more love.
It's when we let the fear of not having enough take over that our decision making takes a wrong turn. Suddenly we start directing our attention away from our true purpose and instead move towards ego, judgement and material things. Instead of trusting in the bigger picture we let fear take the reigns. Suddenly we get agitated. Stressed. Angry. We start looking at other people and feel threatened, jealous and insecure. So much of this world is build on fear and competition and it's a vicious cycle we have to break if we ever want to find true peace of mind. You'll know that you're on the right track when you can look at someone succeeding in the same field as you and feel genuinely, truly happy for them. Can you?
Take a step back and look at your current state of mind. What does your life look like right now? Are you moving in a direction of love? Or are you letting fear run your life? Do you feel safe or insecure? Trust or doubt?
Here is the key: Always choose love. Every time. That doesn't mean that you'll be avoiding difficulty for the rest of your life - it simply means that you've made the decision to let your heart guide you instead of your mind. Let feelings of insecurity be a sign to take a deep breath and become aware if what's stirring within you. Listen to the nudges of irritation that you are overcome with from time to time. They are here to teach you great things! Every difficult moment is an opportunity for you to choose love over fear. Be grateful for the lows as much as you cherish the highs.
Move with love and love will move with you. Give love. Give all you got. You can never run out.”
Are you ready to stop colluding with a culture that makes so many of us feel physically inadequate? Say goodbye to your inner critic, and take this pledge to be kinder to yourself and others.
This is a call to arms. A call to be gentle, to be forgiving, to be generous with yourself. The next time you look into the mirror, try to let go of the story line that says you're too fat or too sallow, too ashy or too old, your eyes are too small or your nose too big; just look into the mirror and see your face. When the criticism drops away, what you will see then is just you, without judgment, and that is the first step toward transforming your experience of the world.”
