“Each one of us requires the spur of insecurity to force us to do our best.”
-Harold W. Dodds
We all have them: insecurities that we’ve possessed since we were young. Insecurities that, when triggered, cause highly emotional responses and cause us to behave irrationally. These insecurities, at first glance, appear to be our arch nemeses. Powerful enough to deteriorate our lives and cause us mental anguish, but too deeply embedded in our psyche to separate as an external entity. In these cases, we are our own worst enemy.
