Practical ways to overcome insecurities

Published

on

Everyone has their insecurities but some are better at hiding them while others are good at dealing with them. Sometimes you just don’t feel like you’re good enough or doing enough. In this day and time where people get ‘standards’ from social media, it is even more difficult for people to manage their insecurities.

A lot of people suffer from depression and even go as far as committing suicide just because they were bullied, rejected or criticized because of their inadequacies.

There is no one way to overcome insecurities as everyone deal with it differently. However, these are few tips I believe would set you on the track:

Build Your Confidence.

When you have self confidence you can’t be bothered about anyone who thinks you’re not good enough. The truth is most people point out the insecurities of others just to cover theirs.

They project their fears on you and try to convince you that you can’t succeed. What you need to do is learn Self Approval. If it’s good enough for you then put it out there. Even if it’ll take a while, your work will surely get recognised.

Do not depend on other people to tell you what is or isn’t good enough for you.

Always Surround Yourself With Positive Friends.

 It’s also very important to be around people who give you strength in your weakness and knows how to give you the right push.

Always avoid toxic friendships and stay away from people who see you as a nonentity or a “never-do-well”. People like that only know how to condemn without giving any good suggestion.

Pray About It.

There are times I get so worried about issues and I just pray. Even when the problem haven’t been resolved, within me I get a kind of reassurance that everything would be fine.

Never underestimate the power of prayers. The answers may take a while but knowing that you didn’t leave God out of it should be a source of relief because He is the one who makes all things beautiful in His own time.

Do Not Be Afraid Of Criticism Or Rejection.

The reason why some of us are not pursuing our dreams is because we’re scared of being criticized or ignored. What we fail to realize however, is the fact that sometimes criticisms bring out the best in us.

I once asked a friend to review my articles and the response I got was a little different from what I expected. He told me that one of the articles was too basic while he  complimented the other, talking about how I owned that particular article.

As my friend it was normal for me to expect him to applaud me, but it was even better he told me the truth because it affected the way I wrote my next article. I was able to make it more personal and relatable.

There is nothing wrong with trying to improve yourself to meet certain standards. Just make sure you’re doing it for you, not because of someone’s approval but because it’s what you want.

Instagram makes move to begin removal of fake likes and followers

Published

on

People will do anything in their power to work less and still earn money. this is why casinos, the lottery and crypto-mining are so popular. It’s also the reason behind a lot of people hoping to make it in the social media “influencer” space going to extremes by manufacturing likes and followers in the hope they can convince companies to give them free stuff to advertise on their platform.



This is a phenomenon which Instagram is currently dealing with as the site is seen as a growing platform for influencers and brands to market products given its young and impressionable user base. In fact, there is even a current trend reported in The New York Times called “nanoinfluencers” which is even seeing people with as few as 10000 followers approaching companies for free products in exchange for advertising them to their followers. All this means though is that people hungry for the extra income and swag are turning to “fake” likes and followers through apps which will automatically like and follow everything you post, thereby artificially boosting the popularity of our posts.  Something, which even if it’s just a few, is not fair to the rest who are legitimately trying to build up their network.

However, according to the latest report, Instagram has developed a way to counter this issue by using machine learning tools to help identify which accounts use these services and automatically remove the likes, follows, and comments that come with it. Like with Twitter’s crackdown on bots, the hope is this will remove much of the fraudulent activity that takes place on the platform and protect companies who want to promote their products from illegitimate claims.

 It’s definitely something which needs to be done and hopefully clean up the social media platform from those trying to “game the system”. While Instagram has long removed fake accounts from their platform, this will be the first time they are narrowing in on fake likes and followers and it will be interesting to see exactly how widespread the problem is by seeing how much it changes existing nanoinfluencers on the site.Personally, I’m still amazed that all it takes is 1000 followers for companies to take an interest in you. Now all I need to do is find a thousand friends who actually want to follow me. How hard can that be?
