Our Insecurities Are a Reflection of Our Own Guilt
I tend to do a whole lot of thinking which doesn’t mean anything really, but I find it to be very therapeutic, in the sense that my mind just wonders and comes to these crazy (what I consider amazing) conclusions, and brilliant ideas… These are just thoughts, and for some reason, I may skip a hurdle and ramble on about nothing but the aim of me writing this is to connect, with you, and your inner-self. If I confuse you, I apologise in advance, hope you make sense of what it is I am trying to say. Here is nothing:
What do I mean by ‘Our Insecurities Are a Reflection of Our Own Guilt’?
It is simple, although it may not seem simple: We fear what we know; we fear our capacity in its entirety. This thought is applicable to most things, if not everything, in our lives. Our daily, personal, work life. What I mean by fear, is that, we are afraid of certain situations which make us insecure because of our own guilt and understanding of the reality of the situations, and consequences.
Ever had this crazy feeling that your partner is cheating on you based on discrepancies in their texts, the time intervals taken to reply, ‘awkward’ responses, etc? At the same time is that thought not justified by the fact that you have been in your partners shoes, in the same scenario, and you actually did cheat? You keep thinking about the loop-holes and ‘things’ to look our for, because you think to yourself, “Hey, I’ve played this role before. And I know how it feels to be the person on the other end”. It must suck to be tasting your own medicine, right?
I just feel, that, to an extent, our insecurities are a reflection of our own guilt. We match our capacity to do bad things with the capacity of other people, in the same way we do with good things. We tend to view the world and its crazy predicaments through the lenses of our own scope, and analyse from our own back yards, listening to our own music. Most of the thoughts we have about betrayal, loyalty, honesty and forgiveness are thought from a personal standpoint – with the simple question: “If I can Do That, Then Why Can’t (S)/He Do That? What Makes Her/Him Any Different From Me?”.
If you have never been on the wrong end of the stick in a relationship, then your thoughts will reflect it. If you have never cheated on or lied to someone, then you will find every reason to justify one’s behaviour before concluding that you are a victim. However, if you know that you have been wrong in situations where they may be chances of you suffering fool gladly, to someone, then you will look at the situation from the angle of you being a perpertrator and working from that point of view.
It’s crazy, but I think it has some sort of truth to it.
