It's funny to me to see how many people I know who are extremely insecure. I've always been insecure, I'm never sure if people really like me or just tolerate me :blush: I've worked hard to not allow these insecurities to undermine me or my relationships.
Now I have a lot of friend that I consider to be very successful in many ways. Marriages, kids, careers, etc. And it's amazing to me how many of these brave, strong women share my issues with insecurity. These are all different kinds of women - age, race, religious affiliation, marital status, etc. Different in all kinds of way, yet we all share the trait of insecurity.
What causes us to doubt ourselves, even when we have displayed time and time again that we are capable of handling anything that comes our way with grace and courage? Why do we assume that every time we succeed it's some kind of fluke?
