Self-doubt is everyone’s greatest adversary, and Beth Moore chooses to address it in her new book So Long Insecurity: You’ve Been A Bad Friend To Us.
Evident in her usage of a writing style extremely close to that of an autobiography, Moore admits that her book is mainly extracted from situations of her own life. She describes intricately how each of her past experiences has pulled her self image down. And later on, she states how in time she learns the secrets to turn her insecurities around.
Spending most of our time under the pressures of modern media is very hard and Moore was never oblivious to this fact. Women are naturally inclined to give in to these pressures easier than men.
As women grow old, most of them become more and more absorbed to the calling of worldly needs. They start to measure themselves by the way they look, by the amount of regular income they make, and by how many friends they gained. And although it is constantly pointed out to us that there is much more to our lives than money or power or looks, it has always been hard for women to really look past these things. But who can blame them? It was after all our very own society’s dictation that taught them to rely on these things in order to get affection from men and their fellow women alike.
This is the continuous cycle that Beth Moore wants to break with the help of her book. By imparting her very own discoveries, she wishes to teach every woman – young or old – the true color of living without the drawbacks of insecurities.
Moore takes us to a walk through a woman’s average life, with every necessary details attached. And as we move along, she discusses how a simple addition of God’s words could change every setting from negativity to optimism. Imagine not being threatened by the head cheerleader from your high school. Imagine not wishing to be in the place of a famous movie star. Imagine being content with your life and all your achievements.
Unlike the opposite sex, women will always be more prone to the burden of these thoughts. But Beth Moore can help you in your journey to be more than just another girl. Through her book So Long, Insecurity, she can help you see yourself as how God would want you to realize all your true potentials.
