    I Wish

    I wish I could just be myself. Relax and feel "normal". Secure. But I don't. I'm always nervous, always scared. I don't feel good enough, not by a long shot. And I don't feel secure in myself. I have always had problems with people. I learned from an early age that it was not...

    It's Bringing Me Down

    I'm not sure if this is the right group for me to post this in, but I think this is the best fit with my story. My biggest insecurity is my looks. And, makes me kind of sick that I can't see what other people see in me. I feel like I should be a very confident person but I'm not...

    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...

    Something interesting I've come to learn about

    myself, and how i react to certain men. Those who have read through posts I've made have seen how, with certain guys, I struggle to turn down, or say no too. Something recent I've found with some guys who have tried to take advantage of that on here, when they push it into...

    I'm a very insecure and jealous person.

    I wish I could change it but I don't know how. It's that bad it really affects me and the people around me I let it rule my whole life :( I felt good about myself before my daughter but I feel ugly now, I haven't put on weight and I don't look any different so why do I feel like...

    Hated By My Entire School

    Everyone at my school hates me and I know they do. They think I am ugly and dumb. None of the guys there have ever asked me out and I doubt any have even had a crush on me. I don't have many friends either. Recently on a school trip I became the joke of the whole school...

    I'm extremely insecure.

    . even when I know I shouldn't be.. but yet I still am. I seem to seek reassurance from men.. and because of that often end up in.. well.. not the best situations.. but where I let men have me because.. when they are using me.. i feel wanted.. and for that brief moment.. I don't...

    I can't stand the way I look,

    dress, pretty much anything about myself. I act perfectly fine when I'm around my friends, but inside all I do is compare myself to them and then all I want to do is cry because I hate myself.

    I am so insecure about everything.

    My body is a small worry but mainly it's while I talk to friends online. I start questioning whether I've said something wrong or why I can't make as many friends as I'd like. Sometimes I post something and Wish i could delete it (not on this site) with no way of getting fully...

    I hate my body, the way I look,

    my personality seems to suck(since I can't make good friends with anyone). Everything's all wrong, and I don't know what to do. I noticed a cycle of myself writing about the same bs over and over again, but in different versions. I never really used to be badly insecure. It's...

    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.

    I've been insecure for a really long time.

    The comments started in Middle School from people who I thought were my friends, but they would tell others that I looked like a man, too dark, too skinny, and that no guy would ever want me. I developed BDD (Body Dysmorphic Disorder) and got sent to psychiatric hospitals due to...

    I feel like for some odd reason people talk about me. I heard this paranoia is like a neurosis. Im normal though .. Could be just sometimes my insecurities just kick for some odd reason i dont exactly know.. Hoping i could control and be more confident and be more mindless.

    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

    Nobody would believe I'm insecure, especially not anyone who knows me. Not in the way I act or the way I dress or what I do. But that's part of my insecurity. I need everyone to think that I'm confident, I have to be the center of attention at the party, because if i'm not...
