I'm insecure about things....

So much so that i have recently made my self seem more like a fool than i needed to be. And i can't say why other than i was being stupid. Of course i worry that i have broke any friendship i had with them. And for good reason, questioning things that i should leave alone is stupid for me to do. I really wished i could stop my self at times. Its harder for me to do than it should be. I hope i have not offended you both. (because i was stupid with more than one person)


This gets me to thinking. How does one stop insecure feelings from making them do big mistakes? Is this some thing medication can help with? Is there any one out there?

Don't feel like the lone ranger. Most creative types spend too much time overthinking things and worrying. They question the status quo because they can conceive of there being alternatives. I honestly believe that underneath, almost everyone is insecure about something.

That being said, if you feel that your natural responses are extreme then ask your physician about anti-anxiety drugs and antidepressant drugs. You might also have them check on things like ADHD (it can also manifest as racing mind, inability to sleep, extreme reactions to things, etc.- contact me through email and I can send you to a site to take a test for Adult ADHD). It could be that chemically (just your own personal chemistry) your body could be askew and that can affect your mental/emotional responses. Take care, my friend. And let me know how I can help.

Yes, insecurity and self-doubt is something that medication can help with. I used to second guess everything that anyone ever said to me and wonder if they took what I said the wrong way.

There are a number of brain chemical issues that can cause that sort of insecurity. Depression, bipolar, and OCD just to name a few off the top of my head.

If you're having repetitive intrusive negative thoughts that are damaging your relationships, it's time to get some help.
