Frequently Asked Questions

1. Is insecurity an emotion?

Yes, insecurity is an emotion that influences how we see ourselves and thus impacts our behavior. Insecurity may stem from external factors and evoke feelings that we do not have control over. But sometimes, this emotion may also come out of consciousness by overthinking and self-doubting.

I would always ask myself this question over and over again; does anybody love me, does anybody care for me? I always thought people who were around me were just there because they were supposed to be there but they didn’t really really understand me or love me. That’s how I always felt, but little did I know that that was insecurity. As soon as I realized that it was actually insecurity I began to work on it (i).”
