a quickie: insecurities

young friend asks: you still have insecurities, at your age? that's an awfully long while to be carrying it around.di ka ba napapagod? i mean, don't you want to do something about that?

my reply: ok, here's a preview of your life 20 years from now

the insecurities. they dont go away. they remain there for a reason. they are there to keep me grounded. i am humbled by them. and they keep me aspiring.

but the big difference? how i react to them now. i hardly think about them. im reminded of them when im quite selfish or 'attached' to the physical. but i dont dwell on them. i acknowledge and embrace them as my own. but they don't possess me anymore.

it's a big difference for me.

Right. You'll never really get rid of them but will (or should) eventually learn how to deal with them. (if that even makes sense.)
