I AM INSECURE! Dealing With Feelings Of Insecurity & Inadequacy - How To Feel Better About Yourself
When You Feel Bad About Yourself
We are too flawed, too sick, and too far gone. In this video, others talk about dealing with these same issues. Their message: we are not alone, and it is possible to change the way we see ourselves. When we sin we lessen the influence of the Spirit in our lives. It can be easy to get caught up in a cycle of using pornography and shaming ourselves.
Rather, research has demonstrated the importance of feeling your emotions for exactly what they are, instead of falling into the trap of feeling bad about, well, feeling bad. Researchers at the University of Berkeley recently conducted a study on the science behind these crummy feelings, and our responses as human beings to those emotions. The researchers speculated that accepting negative emotions for what they are could work because it helps conquer feelings of self-judgment. With self-judgment only comes more frustration, accompanied by more guilt and more self-judgment, and so on and so forth. The cycle is easy to fall into, but it can be incredibly hard to break. The study tested the correlation between emotional acceptance and psychological health in more than 1, adults. The results suggested that people who resist acknowledging their emotions for what they truly are are more likely to feel more psychologically stressed.
Feeling bad about oneself is a common response to realising that one has acted wrongly, or that one could have done something morally better. It is a reaction that is at least partly inspired by a cultural background that Western civilisation has been carrying on its back for centuries.

I remember one day when I was around six years old, my older brother came home from school with one of those star-shaped highlighters that had a different color on each point.

I scribbled an obscure masterpiece of color for a solid five minutes—until my pupils dilated at the new pencil case my brother had pulled out of his school-bag. Anything he had, I wanted. It seemed to follow me as I grew a little older too. I found myself wanting many things other people had. In fact, most of the time it was a character trait, a skill, or even academic ability.
