    Especially when much older men are in the

    restroom using a public restroom when I am in there using the restroom. It's too creepy even for me.

    Most of the time, I dismiss what people may

    think of me and do my own thing. But I practically have little breakdowns from time to time. Rarely. I feel a bit ridiculous asking this but, what do you think of my appearance? I'm the one with the braids.

    I have a history. Both my parents died

    when I was a kid so I go through bouts of depression and anxiety that I strongly work on myself through. My fiance told me today he thinks that a relationship would be easier if he were with someone else. I think he's wrong because every relationship is hard work and every...

    Why Yes, I Am Insecure...

    "Why are you so self-conscious?" I've gotten asked this question so many times recently. And, unfortunately, I don't have a good answer. Not completely true. My answer is always the same: "When you struggled with depression and eating disorders for three years, you tend to be...

    I have my confidence

    but I still have those few insecurities that can eat Mr alive. For example, I never walk barefoot because I'm horribly insecure about my feet

    Yes, girls buy expensive stuff to impress other

    girls, because no guy has ever said "Oh, she's ugly, but that purse bro.. I had to smash."

    I try to help lots of people in my life

    and my friends and family are very important to me. Whilst I try and remain optimistic all the time, there are times when I can't help but feel insecure. This is all down to past experiences and past behaviour from "friends and colleagues". When I perceive the same actions or...

    Feeling Put Down by my Boyfriend.

    I have been dating a guy for about 3 months now and he is very nice but sometimes I find some of the things he says to be insensitive. I am 21 and average looking and he is 27 and quite handsome. A lot of people give him compliments on his looks and a lot of girls like him and I...

    He says he loves me. I know.

    But I can't help but think in the back of my mind how that is so. Because I'm a good woman, he says.. And I think, my mom was a good woman who was ****** over by men. These men pretended to love you, they lied , pathologically because they've been together for years. I been...

    I'm probably insecure more times

    than I'm not. I've been trying for years to figure it out and try to fix it but it's still very much a work in progress

    And It Scares Me

    I don't like being insecure and I know that by being this way I have a higher chance of pushing away the exact people I want closest to me. I don't want to make someone feel like they are responsible for me and my happiness. I don't like to talk about it because I don't want to...

    You Deserve Better...

    Do you ever feel like nobody gives a ****?That's definitely how I've been feeling lately. I get people telling me everyday that they love me (which I am so grateful for) but then they turn around, when we go to parties and stuff, and act like I'm not even their friend. All this...

    "Your smile curves downwards" When he said

    that it struck a nerve. My mouth does this to hide my insecurity It has become habit It has become instinct It just makes me sad that I can't have an upward smile because I'm insecure about showing my missing teeth on the each side of my mouth. I do that so people who I meet for...

    Tbh, I've gotten to the point

    where I didn't go ANYWHERE. But then one day I realized that I'm not ugly, I just surround myself with beautiful, judgmental ********, that's all.

    As a survivor of childhood abuse,

    I have often struggled with many insecurities. I missed out on many coming-of-age experiences in my younger days because of the abuse. When I entered the adult world, it became painfully obvious to me how much growing I had to do to get to even a basic level of success in life...

    I hate that feeling when you finally try to let

    out how you feel about yourself and your life to a person but they keep on trying to make controversy of the conversation when the best advice is simply just a hug or 2 minuets just about you
