Another coping mechanism for insecurity is constant joking.

While a sense of humor is almost necessary for emotional health, the excessive joker doesn’t seem to know the limits of appropriateness.

One of the greatest challenges we face in our lifetimes is becoming comfortable in our own skin.

Here are some common signs that indicate insecurity: Insecure people tend to be very sensitive to critique and respond with defensiveness.

They aren’t comfortable enough with themselves to accept that they might be flawed. They’re open to hearing about ways they might improve.

Quality relationships have been found to be a better indicator of good health than smoking status, weight, or genetics.

Even though we can’t quantify it, this emotional energy is a very real and important part of our lives.

I read one of the most eloquent explanations of why people behave the way they do in a book called The Celestine Prophesy by James Redfield.

It’s a fictional adventure that tries to explain a few things about reality.This burden of energy fatigues the people around them and causes conflict.Conversely, a person who has learned to create their own energy is free to give the excess to other people.Today, the idea that energy connects us all is becoming mainstream, especially with the advancement of quantum physics and the cultural phenomenon People need emotional energy like they need air.Scientists have found that infants respond dramatically to human touch, and will almost “starve” without it.If they disagree with the criticism, they don’t try to argue because they’re happy with who they are. They fill every void with meaningless chatter, almost to avoid having to reflect on themselves.
