Insecurity The Stalker
People say that insecurity plays a large role into the development of someone's humor. So the funnier you are, the more insecure.
I'm not totally sure I agree with this. You're telling me someone who was abused as a child until adulthood is a Louis C.K level comedian?! I knew I should've gotten spanked more. If I did, I would've gotten myself a Netflix comedy special by now.
Although, it makes a little sense. Those who have insecurities usually have more materials to run on. Too much insecurity and you murder women for the heck of it. Just a touch of insecurity and you can be a comedic mastermind.
Like everyone in the Milky Way galaxy (including the Aliens), I have insecurities. Like a balding man in his mid life crisis, I have a gut. Not a beer gut, but a gut full of delicious and mouth watering roast pork.
I'm not completely weighed down by it, because I have a lot more things to worry about. You know, the usual things people worry about.
Whether you're ever going to have a satisfying career, whether you're ever going to happy with who you are in the future, whether you're going to accomplish all your hopes and dreams.
You know, the usual.
Like Natalie Portman in the movie Black Swan, insecurity plays two roles in our lives. It plays as motivation for us to prove ourselves, and it also turns us into psychos. Actually, that might just be in the movie.
Everyone has insecurities, but hopefully not in the Black Swan level. I'm no Gwyneth Paltrow life coach, but I think accepting these little quirks about ourselves is one good step to moving on.
