    I'M Afraid Of Getting Judged

    I can't say that I have a bad life. Or that I hate my life, because I don't. I love my life except for one thing. Being judged. If you knew me, you'd think that nothing would bother me. That I wouldn't take any insult or joke about me to heart. That I would just laugh it off. You...

    So I Don't Tell.........

    Everything that is inside me. I just grin, try to make people feel good & go along pretending that I have nothing to be ashamed of. That I am not a girl hurting inside with no one to trust, no worries to share. I pretend that I am okay with the stress of always wondering if I...

    I tend to hide my personality around people in

    fear that they won't accept me. It's only too late, I find that hey, they would accept me. It's a " I wish I had opened up earlier." Type of thing.

    I Used to be. Not anymore

    and you shouldn't either. People will judge you anyway because they are miserable and as well known misery loves company. You being afraid isn't going to change that. What it will do is keep you from doing anything that makes you truly happy.

    Only By Those Whom I Love

    I couldn't care less if strangers judge me.  I have no emotional attachment to them.  If strangers want to judge me, they can go f*** themselves.  I'll probably never see them again, and they'll go home, go to sleep, and never think of me again.What I dread is being judged by...

    Since I Was Very Small

    I've been afraid of being judged since I was very small. I remember being around 5 and not understanding why adults would laugh when I talked. I was a really happy little girl, but I was pretty emotionally intense and have had a strong need for respect as long as I can remember...

    Urgh I wish I could just speak my mind.

    But I just can't seem to do it. I'm always afraid of what others would think of me.. And so I don't speak a lot and keep many things to myself. /:

    I get panic attacks for only interacting with

    strangers. I cannot accept positive inputs cuz my feelings are telling me that the person might be lying. Negative inputs hurt me a lot but I tend to hide them because I am afraid that more will come if I show that I am hurt by the comment. Performing things I am not proficient...

    Only God Can Judge Me...

    I remember being taught growing up that only God can judge. No one should be judging anyone else. Of course, I went to Catholic school, so the priests and nuns were exempt from that. After all, they are the "telephone line" between us and God, right??That's probably where my fear...
