You know what I’m talking about. We, as humans, are built to be motivated for a reason. We have an emotional, cognitive, and physical connection with this universe. We are able to relate to our own feelings and learn from our mistakes. Why, then, we think that a woman can’t be with a man and vice versa, that a man is impossible to connect with, is something we can’t comprehend.
One of the biggest reasons we find ourselves unable to connect with others is because of our own insecurities. Because many of us view women as “less intelligent” and men as “less capable,” we may subconsciously feel like we can’t be with others. And when we feel that way, we have a harder time being open to new relationships. We are more apt to reject the idea of romantic relationships for fear that we might not like someone.
I think a lot of that is a matter of perspective. Some people think they are inferior because they are a woman or a man, but I would argue that the most fundamental cause of our insecurities is our own insecurities. We feel that we are not strong enough to be with other people because we are not strong enough to overcome our own insecurities.
What we can’t do is not try to conquer our insecurities. We can’t do that, but we can try to conquer our own sense of worthlessness. We can be less fearful, and that is certainly one way to do that.
Like most of us, I was born with the cancer gene. I have come to the conclusion that if I don’t die of it, I will not be able to get a job, have a family, or make a life for myself. I feel like it’s not a question of if I die, but when.
The problem is that insecurities are a very important part of who we are. Everyone has them. We all know that we would not be who we are if we did not have these insecurities. Even if we could conquer our insecurities, we would still not be who we are if we did not have them. There is nothing wrong with having insecurities, but there is nothing wrong with not conquering them.
The answer to your question is a resounding YES. The fact that we don’t know when we’re going to die is one of the greatest fears out there. That fear is what makes us want to get the most important things done in life.
In the end, we have to ask ourselves what is more important: conquering our insecurities or living our lives with our insecurities? That is the answer.
We cannot control the future, only the present. What will happen in the future we can control; what will happen to us, we can control. When we confront our fears, we can decide to accept them and move on. When we confront our fears, we can change our thought patterns so they no longer cause us to panic every time we feel afraid. We can change our thought patterns so they no longer cause us to panic every time we feel afraid.
In the trailer, we see Colt dealing with his insecurities when he’s confronted with a choice between a woman who hates him and the woman he loves. The woman he loves is a man, but he is the same person as the woman he hates. It’s a classic case of what would happen if we were to get cancer and find out we had a brother who’d had the identical disease.
