5 Psychological Tricks to Deal With Your Own Personal Complexes
The trick here is not to avoid fears but rather learn how to face them head on and work with them instead of against them
In life, everyone has their own set of insecurities and complexes. While it’s not easy to deal with these at any time, it can become especially difficult when you are working on your personal image and social media presence. The trick here is not to avoid these fears but rather learn how to face them head on and work with them instead of against them.
Make a list of everything that makes you feel bad about yourself
This exercise will help you to identify the things that you dislike about yourself, which will make it easier for you to deal with them. This can be done either on paper or on your phone. When you are done with it, you can either tear it up or burn it. This will help you to start fresh. Try to not get too critical when you are doing this. Be truthful with yourself and be as honest as you can be when you are writing this list.
Practice self-care and self-love daily
Many people don’t realize that self-love and self-care go hand in hand. This is something that many people need to practice as regularly as they would exercise or go to therapy. Self-care doesn’t only refer to taking care of your body and hygiene but it can also include taking time out of your day to do something you love. You can do little things at home like taking hot baths with essential oils or making a coffee date with a friend.
Don’t compare yourself to others
No matter how much you look at other people’s lives, you will never be able to replicate their success. Different people have different complexes and so each person has to find their own way of overcoming them. Comparing yourself to other people and their success will only lead to you feeling more insecure and depressed about where you are in life.
Celebrate the things you love about yourself
There are bound to be things about yourself that you love. Maybe you have really expressive eyes or a great smile or beautiful hair. If you look at your list of insecurities, you can use it as a guide to help you identify which traits you love about yourself. Once you have found them, it is time to celebrate them. You have to learn how to acknowledge your positive traits as well as your negative ones.
Take control and be proud of your body
You might have an insecurity about your body, and if that is the case, you have to learn how to control it and not let your insecurities take over.
You can try to:
- Eat a balanced diet or maintain a regular exercise routine
- Meditate or practice yoga
- Wearing clothes that make you feel comfortable
