My Insecurity Voice

Have you heard this voice?

You know the one… the voice that takes over when you find yourself a little unsure… a little out of your element… a little insecure.

I hate this voice.

I don’t usually know it’s there until it’s already spoken up and embarrassed me.

Some insecurity voices are loud and boisterous.

Some insecurity voices are mute.

Other insecurity voices are short and quick tempered.

But my insecurity voice… it tends to let my sentences trail off… unfinished… kind of mumbled.  It talks fast but a little quiet.  It tries to redirect the conversation back to someone else rather than on me.

My insecurity voice creeps in when I feel inferior about who I am or what I’m doing.

Sometimes I literally feel like I’m watching from afar as my insecurity voice takes over.

Insecurity is defined as: a profound sense of self-doubt – a deep feeling of uncertainty about our basic worth and our place in the world.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t want my life to be marked by that definition.  I want to live confidently and boldly as the person God has called and created me to be.

What does your insecurity voice look like and how do you wrangle it?

    The insecurity voice: which one would you like to hear about?

    Mine always begins with “But…”. But what about… But don’t you think… But you didn’t.

    But I have learnt (very recently actually), second guessing myself will not help me one bit, but learning to truely trust that GOD knows what he is doing will.
