insecurity guard

with 6 comments

haha, poor guy looks like he could be taken out by an old lady with a purse. i dunno about you, but i would not hire this guy as a security guard.

what if instead of security guards, they had insecurity guards?  like whenever you were feeling insecure this guy in a uniform would come out and be like, “i’m sorry mr. chang, you can’t do there here.  you want to talk it out?”

to be honest, i have a lot of insecurities.  i mean, i know i come off as a supercool, chill, confident guy that everyone wants to be around.  but underneath, dude got a lot of problems.  i feel like i still haven’t found who i really am and trying to find that out is pretty awkward at times.  i struggle a lot with how people view me.  which shouldn’t mater right?  but man, i’m a people pleaser.  i can’t help but want people to like me, which i assume is pretty normal.  i mean, no one wants to be “that guy that no one likes.”  that’s even worse than, “that guy who smells” cause even the guy who smells will get some sympathy cause maybe he has a nice personality.  that guy that no one likes don’t get no sympathy.

what do people do to overcome their insecurities?  is there a point at which insecurities are so ingrained that they are, in your mind, insurmountable?  or are all insecurities overcome-able?  can someone start a insecurity guard force?  i can make uniforms or something.  they’ll look better than this guy’s.

  1. You know, I’d rather be friends with someone nobody likes that with stinky. When people hurl their negativity at you, store it up as tackling fuel and burn it off by laughing it out. You made a spelling error in your second paragraph, so I will make a joke of it.

    TonEX: “Knock knock.”
    Enocalypse: “Who’s there?”
    TonEX: “Mater.”
    Enocalypse: “Wait, what is a ‘mater'”
    TonEX: “I dunno! Whuzsa mater with you!” :mrgreen:

    I don’t mind being the guy that no one likes, as long as I know there are people out there like you who would give a courtesy chuckle to boost my ego*.

  3. the trick, my friend, is to be secure of your insecurities.

    like me. i’m the most awkward guy in the universe. but i’m beginning to realize it’s okay to be awkward. it just means i’ll be single rest of my life.

    doh.

  5. self-esteem!
    so are you a people pleaser b/c you are afraid if people know the real you they won’t like you?
    i think you just have to embrace/own up to your insecurities but also work on them.
    you just have to accept that not everybody is going to like you. i think when you are comfortable with that your insecurities won’t drive your people pleasing behavior.

    love being yourself in spite of what others think.

    also tony’s joke doesn’t make sense. sorry tony, no dice!

  6. I’m an actual security constable(founder/CEO), and I am always toying with new ideas, so I will actualy put together an “insecurity force” that is branched off my company.
