    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.

    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 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...

    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...

    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...

    It Brings Others Down

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

    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...

    I Wish I Could Say I Am Confident
