    I'm really insecure about myself.

    Always thinking I'm not good enough. I genuinely don't understand when someone likes me. Im not pretty or funny or fun to be around. I think I'm boring and everything. But my ex really wants me back and all, so it has to mean that I can actually be loved and missed right? I just...

    My friend compared me to a man today.

    I was so upset. I mean, when you are being compared to man that means you don’t have something girly to be showed. I don’t know why I was upset though, or is it his opinion just always matters. Well I know I’m not attractive. I don’t care even I’m overweight about 30...

    I know it's corny for a guy to say that,

    but guys never really let their emotions out, so this occasion is rare haha. I am insecure mostly about my face, height and personality, i never had a large group of friends like many people do, i never looked as good as my peers, i definitely never had a relationship, i have a...

    To the public eye, I seem confident,

    even nonchalant, as if I don't care what they see or think. But when no one is looking, I sneak a glance at the mirror. But I don't see that confident, carefree girl they know. Instead I see a scared, nervous wreck. And I'm the only one who knows her

    I hear people compliment me most of the time

    saying I should be a model, actress, news reporter or something along the lines of that. I usually just blush and smile, but the voices in my head put me down so I never truly believe them. I hope one day that I can look in the mirror and not see this shy, insecure, depressed...

    Self-defeatist

    I can't seem to shake the feeling that everyone is watching everything I do, and thinking to themselves, god what a loser everything he does is WRONG. I think that too most of the time--how can I possibly do anything right. I know it's not necessarily true but that's how I feel...

    The reason we struggle with insecurity is

    because we compare our behind-the-scenes with everyone else's highlight reel.
