Why are people insecure?

Insecurities feed mental health issues like depression, low self-esteem, and anxiety. They are also often a contributing factor to eating disorders and substance use disorders.

Insecurities are related to standards set by the people we interact with, such as our family, friends, and peers, and societal expectations that may be legitimate or perceived. Insecurities develop when we compare ourselves to others and feel less than.

How insecurities impact mental health

Insecurities are brought on when we recognize differences between ourselves and others, either on our own or through someone else pointing it out. For example, who is teased on the playground at school for being in a larger body than their peers may come to feel insecure about their weight and body. Since feeling insecure seems like an unavoidable part of the human experience, we need to understand how to deal with it.

Many of us deal with our insecurities by trying to hide the things we are insecure about.

We work hard to hide our insecurities from others, to avoid the judgement we expect will be directed towards us if our insecurities show. For example, a person who is insecure about their weight may wear baggy clothes to hide their shape of their body. The long term solution to overcoming insecurities is self-acceptance.
