Reward Yourself For A Job Well Done

For every goal you reach, have a planned reward. Focusing on the anticipated award helps to take the focus off of the problem ahead.

Understanding What You Feel
Ask yourself why you have feelings of insecurity in the first place. Determining where those feelings originate helps you discover two vital things: 
  1. That your insecurities have a valid foundation and that you are not silly for feeling insecure; 
  2. That these issues have a logical cause and can, therefore, be logically cured.

Try to gradually overcome your tendency to feel insecure by introducing yourself to those situations slowly - as a sort of desensitization process.

If you have trouble in social environments, for example, ask trusted friends or family members to go with you and act as a buffer. 

Make yourself step outside of your comfort zone by removing your usual precautions. 

If you typically interact through e-mail or shop online, try picking up the phone instead. Once you are comfortable doing this, take care of business in person. 

Try to think of yourself in another light. Maybe you have trouble handling stress in the workplace, but are you a good mother, wife, or friend? 

Visualize the things that you like or admire and stop looking at yourself so critically. You are likely to be the only person who judges you so harshly.

Doing What You Know Best
Find something you are good at doing, and do it. Finding a hobby in which you excel will help you because it relieves stress and builds confidence. You will then have an escape on those bad days when it feels like nothing is going your way.
Buy a high-quality journal and write a list of the goals you want to accomplish in it. Include a list of the things that you find positive about yourself. Write down any compliments you receive and all professional or personal successes.
Every few weeks, go back and read what you have written in your journal thus far. You will now be able to clearly see the progress you are making.

Don’t try to fix the difficult person

Accept them exactly as they are. 

Accept that they are unable to change, at least at this point in time. Unless you see real change — proof that this person is making an effort to listen and meet you halfway — you can assume that their behavior is what it has always been.

IDEAS

Pay attention to your emotions as you start to think about eating (you might feel hungry, or have a craving to eat something). Notice your emotions as you eat, and after as well. 

Keep a few notes — what emotions do you feel, when, and why. What do you feel like eating? 

What causes insecurity in a relationship

If your partner feels insecure, it’s because they haven’t dealt with whatever is putting them in a negative state

This could be that their needs aren’t being met by your relationship, or it could have to do with something outside your union, like their own lack of self-confidence or fear of the unknown.
