Don't let this defeat you.

Do you know what makes you feel insecure or is it something that just happens?

You can be living your life loudly and proudly, full of self-confidence and self-assuredness, when out of the blue something triggers your insecurity and you no longer feel equipped to conquer the world. It happens to all of us one time or another and for some of us, it happens all the time.

The worst thing you can do is shame yourself for feeling less than secure and confident. You need to either be able to ride out those feelings or do something that makes you feel better right away.

For some of us, we feel more secure when we have a person or persons backing us up, and for others, it’s more a sense of autonomy and the feeling that we’re completely free to do whatever we want.

However, to have that sense that all is right with the world and that we are happily a part of it comes from self-love. When you love yourself enough to accept your mistakes and your errors in judgment, you don’t fear the unknown or the possible as much. You believe in yourself enough to know that you can handle things when they go awry and that you’re worthy enough to take your place in the world.

You shouldn’t focus on your flaws or indulge in feelings that you’re not good enough or that there’s something wrong with you, even if you feel that you’re different than everyone else. Find a way to make peace with your differences and celebrate them. Repeat to yourself that you’re worthy, fabulous and that you deserve all the wonderful things that life has to offer, no matter what your status is or that you have a crooked smile.

Security comes from within and being able to ignore the messages that you’re lacking in some way. You’re amazing and you need to believe it. Here are the biggest zodiac insecurities, according to astrology.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries, you are truly unique because the things that make you insecure usually make people feel safe. You don't like feeling as if your life is routine, without challenges, and boring. You crave excitement and challenge and you need those things right away because you have no patience. You need to see the mystery in the known and find the excitement in the everyday. Don't equate conventional with dull; if you dig a little deeper you'll see that settling down doesn't mean you give up the things that bring you the most joy. You're always interesting, whether it's skydiving or shopping for groceries.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

There are times when you are so selfless that you actually feel adrift and like you don't know who you are or how you fit into the world. It's wonderful that you want to do so much for others but you can't lose yourself in the process. Make yourself your number one priority and then do what you can within reason for others. It doesn't help anyone if you give up fantastic opportunities because you think someone else needs it more than you. You sometimes feel that you're not worthy enough to accept the things that are offered to you but you deserve everything.

When you're being vulnerable and instead of feeling supported, you feel attacked that's when your insecurities start to show. You don't have to hide away from the world; they're not out to get you. You have every right to hold your head up and have the things you want in life. It's good that you share your feelings but don't assume that everyone is receptive to them. For the most part, people aren't out to get you, they may just not be on the same track that you're on and that's okay. You'll find those who understand and appreciate you.

If your partner doesn't reassure you about their love or the people closest to you aren't praising you, you tend to feel insecure. You need to feed off other people's feelings of love and admiration for you, and when you're not feeling like you're getting it, you feel uneasy and as if you're not only not loved but that your acts of kindness are seen as annoying. You know what? You need to do you, no matter what the consequences. If you want to express your love, do it, just don't have expectations and then people can't fail you.

You can't control everything and there are some messes that you can't avoid. You're in control of how you feel so don't let someone else's messiness affect you.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

You feel insecure if you're being ignored. You don't get how someone wouldn't pay attention to you — you're charming, witty, fun, gracious, smart, and while you hate to brag, you're not hard to look at, so why is that person acting as if you don't exist? Look, you don't come to life just because someone notices you. You need to rely on your inner sense of self and know that if they don't like you or find you amazing that's their loss, not yours. You know you're spectacular so don't let someone else harsh that buzz.

You feel secure when you have all the knowledge you need, but the moment when you're on a road you know nothing about or are in a class where you have no training or background, you feel very insecure. It's great if you can totally plan everything and do all the pre-activity research you need but life doesn't work like that. You need to be able to go with the flow and instead of panicking at not knowing something, open yourself up to it. Unfamiliar things shouldn't make you feel anxious and insecure.

You feel insecure when someone comes to you for help and you don't have the answer to their problem and don't know what you can do to help them. Sometimes all you can do is be there for someone and listen to them. You're one person; you can't solve everybody's problems, you can't even solve your own. Reassure yourself that you're doing the best you can and that is a lot.

sometimes. That's not to say you should get drunk off your ass at the company party, but if someone from work sees you acting like a fool, it's okay. The more you show that you're not the same way all the time, you'll probably be more likable.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

You can start to feel insecure if you're forced to be something you're not. If you need to wear a uniform for a job or appear more conservative than you are for a job interview, you feel as if you're lying. We all have various personas that we bring out when we need them. You're not being fake. If you need to be a bit more reserved at a social function or more straight-laced at your church, you're just being appropriate for the situation.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

If someone is giving you notes or constructive criticism, you feel insecure and everything they say hits you in a devastating way. You need to develop a tougher skin because people are always going to want to give you their opinions. Try to be open and listen to them and use the useful pieces of information — the rest, toss if you don't feel it's helpful or that it's coming from a hurtful place. If what they say is helpful, then why wouldn't you want to hear it if ultimately it helped you to get better?
