Insecurities (Pronounced: ī suk īt’ iss) A common ailment that afflicts human beings who care what people think. Among writers, it really sucks; causing them to doubt everything they thought they knew as factual as being refutable on every level of intellect that is bigger, wiser, and better than they will ever aspire to be in any reality and/or universe—ever.
(*This anecdotal definition’s antidote? Hard work and perseverance, sprinkled with a good source of trusty reassurance.*)
