As women, we have superpowers — that’s right! We are able to juggle so many things and achieve so many milestones. But no matter our character and the many people who shower us with love and care, we admit that we do have moments where we feel inadequate and insecure. The good thing is we don’t always have to succumb to our insecurities. Sometimes, we even have the tools to help us become flawlessly bold. Albeit difficult to do at first, we can rise above them, just like these three women who have opened up about their own battle with their insecurities.
Communications and Sponsorship Manager
“It’s the insecurity that I’ll not be able to fulfil my duties as a wife, a mother and as an employee well,” Rachel says when asked about her greatest insecurity. She said she first noticed and felt unsettled by her insecurity when she started making mistakes at work due to the lack of sleep because she’s been working overtime the day prior and taking care of her baby. Because of her desire to be her best self, she ended up setting standards that are too high to achieve.
Wong Xuan Wei
For Xuan Wei, her greatest insecurity is failing. “I’ve kinda always known because I never let myself do things I’m uncertain about. It took me years before I plucked up the courage to go for a cabin crew recruitment exercise.” She also says that her fear of failure greatly impacts her life in general. “Sometimes I overexert my [efforts] without even realising it,” she says. “However, the setbacks have pushed me to do greater things in life.”
Ng Yee Teng
“In my late teens, I realised I hide when I’m hurting or need help,” Yee Teng said about when she first realised she felt a sense of insecurity. “It has always been tough opening up about the problems I face, especially the ones that affect me the most.” She also said that growing up in the era of social media has made it difficult for her to show her vulnerable side. So, she resorted to showing only the best parts of herself.
