Insecurity is:

  • Feeling of not being ``good enough'' to meet the challenge of a situation you face in life.

  • Sense of helplessness in the face of problems, conflict, or concerns.

  • Belief that one is inadequate or incompetent to handle life's challenges.

  • Fear of being discovered as inadequate, ill fitted, or unsuited to meet responsibilities at home, school, or on the job.

  • Sense of not fitting in, being ``out of synch'' with those in your peer group.

  • Perception that life is unpredictable with most of the expectations you have to meet not clearly understood.

  • Sense of always climbing up a mountain, never being able to reach the top.

  • Sense of lacking support or reinforcement where you live, work, or play.

  • Results from a sense of being unaccepted, disapproved, or rejected.

  • Inner turmoil coming from a lack of direction or bewilderment as to where you are going, what your goals are, and what responses are appropriate for events in life.
