First of all, do you struggle with insecurity issues? Yes, unfortunately, I do. If yes, can you tell of a specific situation that happened to you that brought out your insecurities? When my stepfather sexually abused me, I felt so ashamed. I felt so dirty, like I was a lowly worm. All my self doubts, were magnified. I already had insecurities, and after the abuse happened, things got even worse. If you do struggle with insecurity, what do you believe is the root cause of your insecurity? I truly believe that the root cause of my insecurity, began when my parents got divorced. I was in the sixth grade, my dad had just came home from prison, then they told me they were getting a divorce. From that moment on, things went downhill. My dad remarried three different times, and my momma remarried. Neither one of them had much time for me anymore, I felt forgotten. They treated me like a yo yo, I would live with my momma, and then she would send me to live with dad, then with my sister, and then my brother. It was crazy!! Then, when I was finally back living with my momma, my stepfather sexually abused me. Momma did not believe me, and sent me to live with my sister again. So, that is where the root cause of my insecurity began.
