"We're insecure. You and me and every woman. Lately I've been realizing more and more that chronic insecurity is a cultural epidemic, but almost no one is talking about it. And it ticks me off. We're insecure about everything from our looks to our worth as women, from our relationships to our futures, and everything else in between. You name, and we're probably insecure about it." Beth Moore, So Long Insecurity
Are you a book addict, like me? I buy way more books than I will ever have the time to read. I am getting better about it but every once in a while I can still throw one or two in my shopping cart.
I purchased Beth Moore's, So Long Insecurity, a couple of years ago with every intention of reading it and finally addressing some of my own insecurities. I even placed it at the top of my reading pile last month but only cracked it open this morning.
The quote I shared is from the jacket cover and I used it because I think it addresses a common misconception that insecurities have only to do with our looks and self esteem. That is just not true. Our insecurities are any area of our lives that we are unsure of and that causes us to worry obsessively over. It could be our finances, our spouse or lack there of, our children, our health and the list goes on and on. I think it's time I address some of them head on and begin unpacking them for good.
If you have a copy of the book I'd love your input. If you want to grab one from the library or Sam's Club, I'd love to have you take the journey with me.
The weather has finally cooled a bit. I think I'll brew a pot of tea...my reading chair is calling me.
