10 Simple Attitudes to Help You Overcome Insecurity
Do you know when that fear or that feeling of helplessness that does not let you go? This is insecurity, a sensation known to almost everyone just because it does not have to appear as a constant and general problem. In fact, insecurity is present in different aspects of life, depending on each person and their previous experiences.

The good news is that insecurity can be tackled and everyone has that power. Enjoy these precious and simple tips that will help you deal with this feeling:

1. Work on self-knowledge
An important first step is a self-knowledge. The more you know yourself, the easier it will be to identify where your insecurity is, and from there, to realize what small, timely changes can be made to begin to dodge this condition.

2. Look for examples of who you admire
Find people and attitudes that can be referenced for you. For example, are you afraid to speak in public? How about observing great speakers and noticing how they perform in front of an audience?
By imitating some security ideals, you will gradually be able to internalize that way of putting yourself, becoming safer and with more repertoire.

Gradually, you will realize that imitation is transforming into your own way of acting, more consistent and secure.

3. One step at a time
One psychologist suggests that starting with small steps can make the process much easier: “a legal tip is not to think, at first, in big steps, in noisy things, because laziness can speak very loudly.

So, start making small moves and so adjust yourself and encourage yourself to move on. In this way, we become more fit and stimulated for something even greater. This constructive cycle is developing until great things can actually be realized.”

4. Listen to yourself
An important aspect of overcoming insecurity is focusing more on yourself than on others. Listening to external expectations is always important, but even more essential is that you listen to your inner voices.

Focusing on what the other hopes for can make you forget what really matters to you. Try to prioritize your choices and intentions, because seeking to respond to what people expect can be an eternal and endless way.

5. Take care of yourself
Safety and self-esteem go hand in hand and one can influence the other. “Insecurity is very much related to self-esteem. Try to tickle yourself, if you value it more because when that happens, our self-esteem gets more nourished.

Doing good things for yourself, taking care of your body, taking care of your mental health, taking care of the repertoire so that it grows firmer, going in search of something that you are interested in, making beneficial movements for yourself.

All this causes We are safer with our self-esteem, leaving less and less room for insecurity.

6. Forget the Insecurities of the Past
Are not you carrying limiting beliefs back in the old days? If yesterday you could not accomplish something, you may already be able to do it today. Sometimes a person believes he or she is insecure in some respect, but that feeling is based on an experience of a long time ago that may be no longer real.

For example, there are people who have for years considered that they do not have the capacity to lose weight. Others who, because of an experience in youth, think that speaking in public is very difficult. Avoid repeating yourself old insecurities when, in fact, reality is no longer the same. This repetition can favor the permanence of insecurity in your life.

7. Do not give up
Insecurity is often linked to a quitting, a “giving up” of oneself. In that case, the person stays in the same place waiting for something miraculous to happen.

Start making moves for yourself, looking for what needs to be done and what moves are possible at the moment: “We are not born safe, we are not born full of parameters. We are not born, walking nor with the vocabulary that we have today.

We were not born psychologists or journalists, but rather, we are acquiring these securities. That is: the same process is possible with security. It can be acquired and this movement depends on the impulse of each one”, completes the psychologist.

8. Think positive
Try to strive to maintain positive thinking. It will be easier to overcome your fears and face insecurity. If other people can, you can too.
Avoid destructive or categorical thoughts, such as thinking that you do not have the ability or that you will never reach that goal. Gradually, it is possible!

9. Avoid comparisons
Comparisons with other people who have managed to achieve certain things we want is a dead end. As said before, each person has their experiences and their times.

When you visualize people who are referrals to what you want to achieve, instead of overestimating age, salary or results obtained by others, think about how you can get there and avoid making comparisons: they can completely take away your energy from change .

10. In crises, start with something in which you have total security
Did everything go wrong, your self-esteem is boycotting you, got into a screw of insecurity thinking you will not achieve that goal? A good tip to get out of these crises is to do something small, but that you know how to do very well.

Are you good in the kitchen? How about dropping everything for a few moments and preparing that dish that you know will come out perfect? In this way the feelings of helplessness or disability are gradually diminishing and the monster of insecurity is weakened.

Insecurity can accompany us throughout our lives, at different levels, in different aspects of life. The most important thing is to know that it can be overcome by small steps and small changes in behavior. Do not let yourself be defeated by this ghost, grab these tips and move on more and more prepared!

Buhari: 12 million Nigerian children are afraid of attending school

post-image

According to President Buhari, 12 million children in the country have been traumatized and are frightened to attend  school because of the high prevalence of kidnapping.

On Tuesday, October 26, the President announced this during the launch of the Safe School Programme in Abuja.

The President, who was represented at the ceremony by his Chief of Staff, Prof. Ibrahim Gambari, also stated that dealing with security concerns in the country has been difficult.

“The incessant attacks on the country’s education system such as kidnapping, abduction of pupils/students, increased activities of insurgence and general insecurity in our schools have exacerbated many factors responsible for the growing number of out-of-school children.

It is disheartening to note that even when the abducted students are released, the trauma of the incidences remains long in their minds; hence the plan to have teachers trained on psycho-social support.

There are more than 12 million children currently traumatised and afraid of…

Nigeria’s ruling party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), claims it would “convincingly” win the next gubernatorial election in Anambra and the presidential election in 2023.

John Akpanudoedehe, national secretary of the APC caretaker committee, said on Thursday, October 21 at the inauguration of the state congress appeal committee in Abuja that all members of the APC should see disagreements “within the party as family disputes and should not seek to destroy the platform which helped them in the past.”

“With the huge membership strength we have recorded during the last registration and revalidation exercise, there is no doubt that Nigerians still trust us and that we will win all the upcoming elections convincingly, starting from the governorship elections in Anambra, to Osun, Ekiti, and to the 2023 general election,” he said.

“Therefore, there is a greater need to sustain the trust of our party men and women and indeed all Nigerians.
