A rather interesting phrase came up tonight in Small Group: Inappropriately Insecure. It was used to describe someone who is so insecure that they rely on the rigidity of rules to get by. Everything is black and white. There's no deviation from the rules and that's the only time they feel safe. I thought it was a rather interesting description and a great phrase. I think I know some people like that and that I once had those tendencies. But, especially at work, I think I am becoming more confident, more secure, more able to determine when rules should apply and when there is flexibility to choose the best course of action. It is liberating to be secure, confident.
