I Allways Worry What People Think of Me

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 397 People

    Could Be Medical

    I've never been diagnosed with an anxiety disorder or anything. I just feel so self-consciences and I crave people's approval. If I don't get it, I feel like a failure and that I should just immediately give up, go home, crawl under the covers and cry. I'm...

    Why Do I Care?

    I don't know why, but I have always cared what people thought of me. If I'm doing something, I'll stop and think if I look stupid doing it. It doesn't matter if I am having fun doing it, it just matters what I look like doing it and what people might be thinking. If they...

    I Need to Stop Worrying, People Like Me.

    i have fans on EP even after only sharing a few stories. People seem to like me based on a general impression I give them. They don't pick-out certain things that made them want to click the "favourite" button, when I ask them. They say that they got a general...

    Annoyed At Myself For This

    Even here on EP it's like that sometimes. After typing something I suddenly get self-conscious, thinking isn't this too blunt, too cheesy, too smart-alecky or whatever. Then I say to myself: "Wtf, just post it already!!!" and then "I can't believe I just posted that..." then I'm...

    I Hate It

    I have always worried about what people think of me..ever since I was a kid. I was picked on to an extent for my weight..though I wasn't THAT big back then. If my hair wasn't right, if I didn't have the right clothes, etc. I worried about what others were thinking of me. I was...

    I Want To Be Free From It.

    I cant say that I always worry about it, but it is a pain when i do. It stops me from being myself. I get too easily influenced by other peoples body languages and tones, even the very subtle stuff...sometimes i think i see things that are not there. I do have phases where i am...

    I Wish I Didn't

    But its hard for me. I guess around other people that I don't really know, I get this sinking feeling and that's why I don't talk all that much. I choose very carefully what I want to wear in the morning because if its something that's just....out there, I guess, I know people...

    I don't why I am this way but I always worry I'm not good enough for people, I mean I guess really deep down I believe I'm equal but my mind isn't letting me accept that. You could be the worse to me and though my mouth is saying I'm fed up, my mind is saying "I just want you to...

    Always, Not Allways

    I do wonder what people would say if they saw me now, dressed as I am at 9pm in a dressing gown, scarf, sunglasses and flip flops, eating rice out of a plastic pot. But then that is why as you can tell by now I am a social recluse. It's better for us all this way, believe me.
