Insecurity comes from not confident of who you are and what you do. Most people fail just by not following their dreams due to people’s reactions or perceptions of them. What others think of you should not be your business, as far as you are on the right track. To see the result and be proud of who you are born to be, you should know and understand what freedom means. Freedom is the ability or power to act, speak and do things you love. It’s the ability to generally change without any constraints and without feeling enslaved by people’s reactions.
Depending on others to act and do that which you love, means you have sold your power out and that will lead to insecurity.
In the book of Corinthians 7:23 You were bought at a price; do not become slaves of human beings.
The above verse illustrates that Christ has bought us with a high price which was his blood. That is all that has set us free from fear, shame, humiliation. You belong to him, so set yourself free from the very bondage you have eluded yourself.
Ways To Gain Freedom From Insecurities
- Know Your Worth
You might say I came here to learn how to be free from insecurity. But the first place to start is taking the time to know you and value who you are born to be. It’s all about letting go of what people will say. Be proud of yourself and learn to be your number one fan. Go after your talent and run with it with passion and boldness. Because in it lies your greatness. Tip: If you don’t value what you do and who you are that is when you seek people’s perceptions to be able to move on. And when you don’t hear positive feedback from them, it brings out insecurity in you.
- Keep Good Company
Hanging around those that intimidate you will get you more scared to face the reality of life. So to be able to gain your freedom. Believe in yourself and hang around those that will encourage and lift you when you are scared. A good company plays a great role in overcoming insecurity. Have friends that are willing to hold you accountable in your race of life. Those that support you and correct you with love.
Proverbs 13:20 Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm.

Dear to dream big, and be willing and determine to fun after your desire.
- Step Away From The Past Hurt
Stepping away from past humiliation and hurts will help you break free from insecurity.

I know it is not possible to erase the past hurts but it will be better to let go so that you will be able to move on in life. The fear of failure comes mostly in women because they are scared that the same past mistake might re-occur. If you take the lessons from past hurt it will enable you to start a new beginning from a place of experiences.
Please make time to reflect. Reflection helps you see and feel better about yourself. It will give your brain space to bring out the good things about you. Have time to appreciate the good things in your life and those God has placed in your life. It might not be a close friend but someone who understands and respect you for who you are.
