A ride through the mind of a very insecure person

Published

on

We all have our insecurities, and we all sometimes doubt our capabilities, but to a certain extent and then it becomes unhealthy. Insecure people often suffer from anxiety and is in constant fear of being judged or mocked, that’s why they suffer almost every day, and especially when it’s accompanied with overthinking.

If you’re wondering what goes on that troubled mind of theirs, here’s a glimpse of some of the voices inside their heads.

1. “Too many people, don’t you wish you are back home where you can’t mess up?”

They will count their every move, and think of every word, their anxiety is at its highest when they’re surrounded with strangers and they just can’t wait to get back to the safety of their homes. And when they do, they’ll probably recap every action, every word that they have said, maybe blame themselves for being so awkward and hesitant.

2. “Should I? Or should I not? I probably shouldn’t.”

Acting in a spontaneous way is probably out of question, every move they make is counted and all the possibilities are thought of ahead and considering worst case scenarios is a must!

That’s why they often hold back from so many possibilities and chances, such as a great job opportunity, that they’ll think they’re underqualified for it. Or a relationship, with a person they love dearly, that they think is out of their league.

3. “Shut up, they’ll mock you.”

Here’s why insecurity is the worst, it undermines your worth and blurs your vision that you can no longer see the goals that you have set for yourself, fear holds insecure people back and along with them are ideas that just stay this way, a raw idea that didn’t get the chance to transform into an action, just because that person is too insecure to share it with people; thinking it will be thought of poorly.

4. “I shouldn’t have said that, why do I always mess things up?”

Insecure people tend to isolate themselves, they create a comfort zone of their own and stick to it, getting out of it is usually a challenge for them; one they’re not willing to take. Just like introverts, they find comfort in certain things that they are not willing to change.

It’s true that insecure people are the ones who created the box for themselves and hid inside it, but it’s also true that sometimes their loved ones don’t offer them a hand to pull them out.

Help your loved one fight their insecurities, remind them of their worth and encourage them into taking actions they fear. And for those with anxiety, take a leap of faith, and learn to push back when thoughts start to pull you in.

A journey towards Self-Love Pt2

Published

By

A part of your journey towards self-love is to let go of things and people who cause you harm, self-doubt and insecurities. Those who hold you back, instead of pushing you further. You may think you’re in a dark place and should be in there left by yourself, but no, there are people who choose to leave you alone and then there are others who are capable of giving you a hand and pulling you out into the light.

Besides having someone to help you out, it’s you at the end, who are capable of giving yourself the love it deserves, and what follows are simple ways toward doing so:

  • Cut the toxicity out of your life.

This toxicity can be habits or people, the common thing is that both cause you damage that you should be willing to let go of and not feel sorry about it. If you got used to a certain bad habit, try to substitute it with a healthier one, or cut it down a notch.

If it’s people who are causing toxicity in your life, make boundaries or even better rid yourself of their burden, you may still be holding on to them because you have known them for years, but trust me, it’s not worth draining all of your energy. And you’ll realize that once you start to shift this wasted energy from them and towards your own self, that is when you’ll know the relief of letting go.

  • Make a day for yourself.

Take a day for yourself, learn to enjoy your own company. You can go out, have lunch by yourself, go to the movies or maybe make it a spa day. Anything that will help you relax and put your mind at ease. Or you can simply stay home, and do some self-care routines that you surely have been ignoring.

And never feel guilty for taking some time off away from your friends; because this is simply you putting yourself on top of your priority list and it’s nothing to feel sorry for.

  • Keep those who understand you closer.

Stick to those people during your journey, those who understand and value your worth, and sees you for who you really are. They will see things in you, that you’re yet to discover about yourself. They will help you find them and it’s an essential part of your journey, as it is crucial to be surrounded with people who remind you constantly of your worth, and validate your points.

  • Forgive your past self.

In order to kill your demons, you have to confront them first, work on banishing your dark sides with the light of your forgiveness, show willingness to not only fight those demons but to have the power to accept them. Focus on who you want to become, instead of blaming yourself for what you might or might not have done.

  • Exercise.

Loving yourself is accepting it and changing what can be changed to the better. Leading a healthy life can have positive outcomes, on both your mental and physical health.

Eat healthy food, and monitor your change, the results will boost your confidence.

  • Stop focusing on winning people’s approvals.

And try to focus on wining yours! Your approval is the only one that matters, if something makes you happy then do it. Don’t wait around for someone’s permission to do what you love, and you surely don’t have to do what everyone else is doing.

BBC interviews Al-Daheh Ahmed El-Ghandour

Published

“Meet the geek behind Egypt’s hit online science show” was the title that BBC has given to its interview with our own Ahmed El Ghandour aka ‘Al-Daheh’, and it gives us pride to have one of our brilliant minds being acknowledged by such a well-known media platform.

El Ghandour launched his science blog back in 2014, and now his channel has clocked up more than 19 million views.

He might just be the only person who is capable of turning science into something fun, accessible and understandable to all segments that follow his blog.

“I love all scientific subjects, never really stuck to learning only one.” Al-Ghandour tells BBC.

And that’s what makes his blog even more interesting, and succeeds in attracting different segments; seeing that he covers topics ranging from evolution to war, from science to history and more.

He describes the character of Al-Daheh as lonely, nerdy and insecure. Always appearing by himself on the show. I believe this is one of the reasons that his blog is succeeding, because the character of Al-Daheh is one that appeals to all and gets you hooked to know more, he always tells the information in a fun, kind of a weird way.

One of the theories on how countries evolve and ways towards gaining sustainable development, is the education entertainment theory. And that is through spreading awareness and  educating masses by means of entertainment. This is why, Al-Daheh is a personal favorite to me, and one of the few influencers to be using his platform in doing his fans real good.
