An insecure person is someone who just feels like they need to compare themselves to others. They think that if they tell themselves that they are good enough that it will come true. What they don't know is that they are already good enough. They will see themselves as less than perfect, and hate themselves for it. If you or a friend is like this, know that you or them are amazing the way they are. If they see it or not. Urban Dictionary

When you feel like you're not good enough, you spend hours trying to look your best. You push people away because you're used to being used and people turning their backs. You lie, not about things to seem cool but you lie about being okay. Even if asked repeatedly you still say "youre fine " . people of all ages can suffer with it. And they tend to be the people who are the most caring. Urban Dictionary

Being insecure is when you hate something about yourself. For example, some people are insecure about their acne, or their flat chest. And being insecure sucks especially when you're insecure about everything. And it takes a LOT of time and patience to get over your insecurities, and sometimes you never get over them. But I want you to know that you are a badass bitch and you are sooo beautiful and hopefully someday you realize that. But your brain just does this thing when you look at yourself where it points out all of the bad things about you and it's really difficult to train your brain not to do that. But it isn't impossible and its worth giving a try. Urban Dictionary

Something that almost everyone is because of the stupid standards society expects us to live up to Urban Dictionary
