It sounds outdated, cheesy and perhaps slightly dumb, but honestly you have to own what you're wearing, you have to own the words you speak, own and claim everything you do without self doubt. I will not sugar coat it, the world is crazy, there are people who want to help, and there are people who want to hurt, and there is a lot of greed but we wake up every single day into it, and we live our lives now don't we. Insecurity comes and goes, but at the end of the day you must recognize you are unique and beautiful. There isn't another you anywhere in the world, no matter what vicious words may fill your ears they aren't true you must be the only person you can be and that is yourself and you must own your originality. It hurts but most pity parties, and low self esteem seminars I bare witness to are told by girls. I hear girls talk about insecurity like it's the thing to be, I hear girls down themselves to get attention, it's sad, because on some level they are truly insecure but it's deeper then simply feigning flaws but it's deep within them. Insecurity isn't some coveted trait, don't play around with low self esteem it's not some attractive perfume to spray as you please because the only people you attract are those who pity you, or guys who are equally insecure. I once heard a guy say "I prefer pretty girls who don't know they're pretty", he's entitled to an opinion, but anyone who says I prefer a girl who doesn't know her self worth, who doesn't recognize how beautiful she is over a self aware young woman, obviously can't handle one to begin with so obviously there's the root of his preference but I digress, when you allow yourself to be insecure to allow self doubt to take a succubus hold onto you, you are left weak and you are left to be turned and twisted and controlled, own your confidence, own who you are, OWN IT.
