A very flawed character trait that results from low confidence and low self-esteem, often due to rejection or a humiliating experience as a child. They feel socially inadequate, causing them to worry about what people think about them. They want to be liked by people and will go out of their way to please others, because they don’t want people mad at them. Insecure people often compare themself to others to see how they “stack up” against the perceived “competition.” An insecure male will often be controlling in his relationship, because he feels he is not worthy of having his woman and, therefore, fears his girlfriend will find a better man. He gets angry and jealous if another man only looks at his woman in admiration. He will listen in on other people’s conversations to hear if people are talking bad about him, or will read his woman’s diary to see if she is betraying him. Insecure people will often insult or bully others to feel better about themselves. They will also lie about their alleged “success” to impress people. Basically, insecure people hide their real self to avoid being rejected or despised, when most of their perceptions are false.
Being insecure is probably the most common emotional problem.

When you feel like you're not good enough, you spend hours trying to look your best. You push people away because you're used to being used and people turning their backs. You lie, not about things to seem cool but you lie about being okay. Even if asked repeatedly you still say "youre fine " . people of all ages can suffer with it. And they tend to be the people who are the most caring.
