    I really take what others say

    or their actions toward me to my heart... I don't know why. It's like as if my spirit gets elevated or depressed depending on their evaluation (of me). I don't know why. I should stop doing this.

    Hiding

    This year I began to withdraw myself from all and any social situations. At school I am in my own little world. I'll rest my head and dream of other things, of better things. And people sometimes notice. And they ask me "why?" "Why are you always so checked out?" "What's wrong...

    I USED TO BE VERY INSECURE.

    ...... It seemed that all my life I needed others to validate who I was. That was a real problem because everyone is so different. To live that way you have to be a chameleon, able to change constantly. That was very frustrating to say the least. As a young person I began to...

    I've been insecure for a really long time.

    body or not. I'm really insecure and rarely wear flattering clothes in public. I just don't like my body, I feel fat... And just ugly.

    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
