Episode #58: An Antidote For Insecurity
The “what” is easy. Craftwork is a specialty coffee shop and vibrant membership-based workspace with locations in Fort Worth (Foundry, Camp Bowie, Magnolia) and Austin (Domain). We serve craft coffee and are a connected coworking space. But you knew that already. Our “why” is our heart – we desire to create spaces and places where our members and customers experience connection and community.
The author of this newsletter often feels insecure.
Usually (and unfortunately) it comes from placing a great deal of importance on what others might think about said author :). The dictionary definition of insecurity is: uncertainty or anxiety about oneself. One thing that stands out in both the definition and the experience of insecurity is the focus on oneself.
If this is the case, then might one antidote for insecurity be taking the focus off of ourselves?
Whether you are feeling secure, insecure, or somewhere in between, we hope that this Advocate encourages, gifts, and connects you. As always, we hope we get the opportunity to see you soon at Craftwork.
Could one cause of insecurity be thinking too much about ourselves? If so, could an antidote to insecurity be the intentional focus on others rather than ourselves? If we are feeling insecure, let’s say at a party, a work meeting, or looking at an Instagram feed, then try the following: proactively shift your attention away from yourself. Consider how you might listen, help, or serve the person in front of you. See if this might be an antidote to any insecurity you are feeling in the moment. If you attempt this at all this week, we would love to hear how it went! Contact us here.
