“WHY DID HE SAY THAT”?
“IS THIS LOOKING GOOD?”
“WHY WASN’T I CHOSEN?”
Aren’t these common questions? Well, everyone has these at some point or another. But there are certain ages when these questions are more prominent than others.
Yes, one of them is teenage.
What is an insecurity?
It’s a simple feeling when you are not certain about someone, something or a situation. Since, Teenage is the posterchild for confusion and chaos, this age comes with a lot of insecurities.
Before we get into what surfaces beneath a teenager mind.. Let’s see where these insecurities stem from!
A lot of us are figuring out who we are and by that we mean some pretty basic things. Yes, our generation that loathes the basic so much finds it hard to decide some of basic core values. This is where we become insecure.
I might probably voice my opinion and get looked down on and then be even more bullied if I were to keep quiet. So how do I figure out if I’m doing the right thing? You see this? This right here is where our insecurities stem from.
Sometimes our insecurities are passed to us by our genes!
Our parents even though having the best intentions at heart sometimes question our behaviors in a way that makes us feel insecure. Moreover there could be many uncertainties that are bred in us from the beginning.
Yes, we don’t accept it but our Generation is big on “Approval”. We will not bother about being cool in a way that people approve of it! SO yes, sometimes when this doesn’t happen, we feel sad and insecure.
It’s not like the end of the ….. world but You know what I mean!
There could be a thousand more reasons because just like our Instagram profiles we do have the same teenage account but very like very different tastes!
One of the main insecurities that teens have is about body image. We all look at the mirror a million times, but not cause we are narcissists but because we want to be sure of ourselves.
Let’s move from us to the world !
Another major insecurity is that of change.
WE DO NOT BELIVE CHANGE IS CONSTANT! THE ONLY THING WE CHANGE EVERY WEEK IS OUR SHOWS!
Changing schools, towns, friends, apartments or even travelling routes can be a little unsettling for us. I know change is difficult for everyone but for us it means you literally placed us in a different planet!
If insecurity was a pokemon, the first to be caught would be personality doubts!
Overthinking is password to the account of insecurity and this major personality trait is the reason why we think about our personalities so much!
Our we too indulgent, too quiet, not happening, too nerdy, not dope enough? These are some of the very few thoughts that run a mile per millisecond in our brains!
