Insecure Thinking is becoming my new best friend.
How is that possible? I will tell you. I have found that Insecure Thinking is an illusion. A powerful illusion that seduces us into action or has us freeze into doing nothing. We all tend, actually we are compelled, to either freeze, or try to solve IT.
What is IT? That way that our minds can get strapped into a roller coaster, a story about how we are not good enough, not doing enough, we’ve caused something, we are the victim of something, we should have avoided something, NOW we are really sunk… whatever the story is, you can know it by by how IT feels.
IT has us feel all of these wonderful emotions: scared, anxious, nervous… there’s a whole host of emotions we can have when we are THINKING. We don’t like these emotions. We prefer not to feel this way, and we believe we are not supposed to feel this way.
Trying to solve Insecure Thinking is like trying to catch a ghost. You can’t do it. (Ghostbusters notwithstanding.) You cannot fix something that ISN’T THERE to be fixed.
