Things to Remember When Insecurities Creep In

There are days when you simply don’t feel good enough about yourself that it takes extra effort to like how you look and this is one of those days. I ate insecurities for breakfast today so I don’t know what’s up. I can’t blame my hormones again or the planets, it’s just plain insecurities creeping in when you least expect it.

I knew it was a bad idea to check someone’s profile but I still did because I’m an idiot. So I saw this beautiful photo and though I know it’s heavily made up (as in gawang make-up artist talaga, mukang wedding stuff levels ganern) plus the fact that I know how that person truly looks like under the make-up, I still felt ugly. (hoy althea, bakit insecure ka masyado???? Oa mo)

I felt like I wasn’t pretty enough. That I am not beautiful and I look like shit. And though I know it’s not 100% true (the fact that I look like shit cause we all know I don’t really HAHAHAHAH) why did I feel shitty?

I don’t know. So here’s something we can all agree on when insecurities are served for breakfast, lunch and supper.

Things To Remember:

  1. Do not go checking someone’s profile or look at someone’s photo when you know you’ll end up regretting it. (wag kang pacheck check kung mapapangitan ka sa sarili mo after mo makita ang “after” photo from the make-up artist)
  2. People do not post unflattering photos of them most of the time. (so anong problema mo diba? Alam naman natin pare-pareho na kung ano ang maganda, yun ang ipopost)
  3. Stop eating insecurities any time of the day. It will not do you any good. (ang daming food choices for breakfast like self-love, acceptance, care and understanding, bakit insecurities ang napili mo today?)
  4. We are all created different and equal. Stop looking at Brenda’s and Susan’s. At the end of the day, everyone is beautiful and ugly all at the same time. I mean everyone feels the same thing and they just don’t say it. (quits lang gurl)
  5. The surface do not matter as much as what’s on the inside. Your soul should always be the more beautiful one than your face.

  2. Kapag may ganyang moments ako, may isang linya akong panlaban sa mga ganyan eh … yung tipong pangit na pangit na ako sa sarili ko. Sinasabi ko sa sarili ko na. “Maganda ako. Magandang maganda ako sa paningin ng nanay at tatay ko.” Hindi ko alam kung anong merong magic o gayuma yan pero everytime na nilalamon ako ng insecurity, yan lang ang iniisip ko nadidispel na ang nega vibes. 😀

  3. #1!!!!! and also #5!!!!!! Pero mas type ko yung #1, madalas kasi yang insecurities na yan galing sa mga nakikita natin, pwede mo naman iwasan yun eh. Kung kaya iwasan, iwasan na lang. 😀 I’d pick maganda ang ugali kesa maganda ang fes anytime of the day.

  5. Feeling insecure is normal; there is no cure, but to practice building confidence. A great way that helped me was practicing gratitude– write three things you are grateful for.

    1. Definitely! I’ve learned so much and one thing is insecurity is sort of easy to fight when you always think about the things you should be thankful for 🙂
