It is definitely possible to conquer insecurity once the root cause is identified. For example, if you feel insecure about socializing ask yourself why? Are you scared of talking to people? Did you have a traumatic experience? Are you setting the bar too high? Keep asking these sorts of questions until you narrow down on something actionable.
Social anxiety can be the biggest hindrance to developing true confidence. It is more than just being shy. It is defined as the fear of being judged and evaluated negatively by other people,leading to feelings of inadequacy, inferiority, self-consciousness, embarrassment, humiliation, and depression. These feelings are caused by over-activity in the part of the brain that controls fear response.

You can view masculinity as a sword; though the sword can cause harm, it can also be used to protect, and it is in a man's nature to want to protect. Suggesting we simply take away the sword of masculinity, we will do more harm than good, especially to future generations; men and women.

We may prefer an easy life, but that will not result in a fulfilling life. Fulfillment can come in many forms, depending on the person of course, but it can never come from doing nothing...
A major difference between Confidence and “confidence” is resilience. Set back is an important part of building Confidence. The mental fortitude to know, or at least genuinely believe, that the action you take is the right one. Men who act “confident” are weak when met with resistance and that causes them to fumble. That weakness stems from a lack of self-assurance...
Drive is an important part of being a man and getting in touch with one's masculine essence. It's an important part of living life to its fullest. We don't need to create an empire to fully enjoy life, but we do need to go after the things we feel we should. If you have ever thought; “It would be cool if I could do that, but...”. I can tell ya, there is literally no better time to start than NOW...
