    Eeeeeeeee

    I thought I was ok, but even my music teacher thinks I have no confident! She wanted me to play a solo and I said no and she said why? And I said I'll probably mess up. Then she's like u have no confidence! I guess it's really obvious to me now.

    I'm learning, slowly

    that good does come from within. Peace isn't just something you read about in books, and trust is allowed to. If I let you in, I've given part of myself that few ever see. I don't do it lightly. I will do my utmost to do the same. Somewhere over the rainbow..

    I See No Reason To Be Confident In Myself...

    As I think I am a total freak. The only thing I have going for me is that I work with kids and am well respected and liked by the parents and of course the kids. Other then that, my life is pathetic. I am 25, single, no friends (Lost them through no fault of my own) and no social...

    It Brings Others Down

    People only like those confident in themselves. Does that mean I'll always be alone?

    class and I need it to graduate. I have trouble getting along with the teacher and I think she does not like me. I am not sure I will pass.

    Know Yourself

    I was sitting in a conference today and the man speaking said something that really stuck with me. He said, "In order for others to know you, you must know yourself". I cant stop thinking about this. I used to be a very confident, out-going, likable person (or at least I thought...

    Moshi Moshi!

    It's extremely hard for me to feel confident. I don't feel confident. I often times (All of the time!) feel ugly. "The story is old but it goes on" I don't feel attractive at all. Which comes out being a huge problem as I have an extremely attractive older sister. I feel so...

    I Feel Like A Failed Organism

    I just can't seem to find a female to carry out the life functions. Perhaps my greatest demise has been romance. Good Christ for some reason I have come to believe that if the union between a male and female is not "Ideal" It is probably not worthy of my interest. The story of...

    This Is Soooo Me

    I am terribly lacking in self confidence and i think it probably goes back to my childhood. I was brought up by parents who did nothing to instill confidence in me. My father is a very confident man. He believes he can do and get anything or anyone he wants, but he also tends to...

    I Wish I Could Say I Am Confident

    I have never been confident.

    My entire life I have always second guessed myself, my choices, my actions. I don't know why, it's just the way that I've always been. I envy those that seem to never question themselves.
