How to Compartmentalize: 4 Simple Tips to Remember

Don’t you wish you knew exactly how to compartmentalize—your thoughts, emotions, even your stuff? Well, putting your stuff in shelves is for another discussion, for I’ll be talking about compartmentalizing what we think of in our everyday life.

It sure can be difficult, can’t it? Imagine going through a difficult challenge in your life right now—job-hunting, breaking up with your lover or going through a natural calamity—and yet you must still be able to handle your daily routine as if none of those is happening.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying you should suppress your emotions. I’ll never do that myself. But I know there’s a time to reflect and think about things. Learning how to compartmentalize means knowing how to manage yourself such that you still get to do what needs to get done.

Three Things Insecure People Don’t Let Go Of

Insecurity comes in many forms and with different causes. Each of us lives differently, on our own, and we’re simply exposed to different environments which could be a stimulus in one way or another for any type of insecurity.

There are plenty of facets in which insecure people struggle. All of which may generally fall under career, relationships, health, spirituality or personality.

For example, you may be insecure about your career because for a long time you’ve been waiting for the promotion, or a raise, but it seems that nothing is going to change soon. Or you may not feel so confident with your significant other because you think you’re not the type who’s worth keeping. Health is wealth, but you may be fearful you couldn’t afford keeping up with good health. You may also be unsure about your spiritual beliefs and because of that, you study any materials you can lay your hands on. Do you hate some of your mannerisms? Would you consider them as a source of your insecurities?
