It’s almost impossible to express the depth of pain experienced by someone with an abused, neglected, or otherwise scarred background. Even after years of healing, the wounds can be shockingly fresh. One of the most common results of a conflicted past is an insecure present.

Insecurity, while not restricted to youth, is at epidemic proportions among youth today. Over the next several weeks, we’re going to be releasing a four-part series of articles on insecurity along with a companion three-part podcast series. You can listen to the podcast series here, here, and here.

It is my prayer that these bite-sized segments will not only be helpful, but life-changing for some. They’ve certainly been life-changing for me.

this is part 1 of 5 in the series
