    I dealt with them through either confrontation or avoidance, and that contradiction itself is one of my greatest insecurities. I want to be solid, well founded, and when I contradict myself I feel as though my identity isn't defined. Now that I am mentally healthier (if only slightly) I find it easier to mend these problems, but not solely for my own sake. How could I ask someone to do the same if I can't handle my own insecurities.

    Realizing that insecurities are natural is a great way to be bolstered against them, and I admit I'm actually fond of discovering the reasons behind them. I know myself very well, and I find that to be my greatest asset. Sometimes there are so many questions raised that I am more indecisive than insecure, but after gaining more experience the decisiveness come more naturally. Perhaps it's the value driven thought process, and once the value is shown it becomes easy to react.

    I tend to (try) and ignore them, deal with them in unhealthy ways (e.g. starving myself to become skinnier) or just altogether suppress the trait.

    Dwell on them until they manifest into some kind of neurotic mental disorder.

    Unfortunately I haven't figured the self confidence thing out, so I have no (healthy) advice, but I do know that life is not supposed to be perfect and neither are you and it's okay to have insecurities, just be honest with yourself about those insecurities and accept them as part of your identity that make you individual and unique.

    I do not deal with my insecurities. They deal with me!

    Just kidding...I have dreams about them and then write about them on PerC and fret and stuff a bunch. I wouldn't recommend it.

    Some of them I challenge and I find after I've challenged that fear that it gets easier to manage and clearly see what I want, and not feel as if I am being dictated to.
