    Even though i have some others tell me how good

    of a person I am, it's hard because I see so many other people in life who are truly happy. Who have not let life bring them down. I hate myself for the choices i made and i feel even though i help a lot of others, it's not enough. What good is it if I can't find a way to help...

    A Sad and Lonely Place

    I have little or no self-confidence when it comes to relationships. I have really big commitment issues. I'm unusually shy which makes it difficult to make any friends. I don't have very many and I spend most of time alone. I don't have any special talents. I don't excel at...

    Self Doubt.

    I know noone should be insecure about themselves. everyone is to some point though, no matter how much they try. I try so hard not to be, but it doesn't do much good. I still am. I know I'm not the hottest girl on the planet. Wouldn't want to be. but sometime it would be...

    My manager once said to me there is a

    From Failure To Fruitful

    Often our plans fail that God's plans for us may succeed. - Ellen G. White I have had many so called "good" ideas or plans that failed and it turned out to be a blessing in disguise. I have also had experiences in my life that appeared to be a complete failure and turned...

    I hate feeling like I'm behind.

    I know that I'm still very young, and I have a lot of growing up to do, but sometimes I feel like I need to have myself together, or that I should've had myself together long ago. Everyone seems to be coasting through life so easily. Getting jobs, getting their license, getting...

    Everyone has their insecurities,

    so do I, but i spend time trying to hide them. I dont like being perceived as weak, an insecure little girl with issues. I don't want to be seen that way, although sometimes I wish I did. I feel so lonely sometimes and I'm stuck with this voice in my head always judging me...

    I struggle with low confidence

    and low self esteem, but I'm definitely trying to put in the effort to build it all up again. I tend to compare myself with others, which I think happens naturally with everyone. One thing I'm learning is that it really is damaging. It's hard to stop, but it's extremely damaging...

    Feeling Ugly

    I've always had issues, from anxiety to family to trust but I feel my worst issue is my insecurity. "You're pretty", "Why are you even worrying about that?" "Get over it" and more things similar to the previously listed. I don't know what exactly started the insecurity. I mean I...

    The Green Eyes

    I, like many of us, have moments of insecurity. However, my moments are not few and far between, no no. The feelings come when I wake up, through the day, in the evening, when I go to bed, and in my dreams. I have always been shy at first, until I get comfortable, but even then...

    I just see other people

    who are better looking than me, have more good things in their lives, more material items. I compare them all to myself and frankly, I'm inferior. Maybe I have more of a soul but to be honest, I'm convinced it means all that much nowadays. It should but it doesn't.
