Feeling insecure in relationships is common, but the cause has more to do with our personal history than anything else.

We can probably agree that insecurity is one of those feelings from which nothing good can come. But most importantly, what causes insecurity in a relationship?

So what’s the difference?

2. Self-Discipline: the ability to control one’s feelings and overcome one’s weaknesses

Simply put, discipline is a practice without any values or judgment attached to it. For instance, a boxer trains for several weeks for a fight, putting his body through strenuous…

Most people have been “in a rut” before, but how many of us know how to describe or explain the feeling? Or how to make it stop?

It’s All in Your Mind

The idea of being “stuck in a rut” sounds like a physical phenomenon. Because the word stuck generally means “being trapped in something.” While there may be several definitions for stuck, the one that’s most fitting for this article is “unable to progress.”

Do You Tend to Overthink?

Overthinking isn’t always a bad thing on the surface, but it certainly can turn into a bad habit. While everyone overthinks occasionally, some people are troubled with an endless stream of negative thoughts all the time.

Chronic overthinkers rehash conversations they had yesterday, second-guess every decision they made, and imagine catastrophic results all day long.
