    I am not confident at all.

    I feel like such an unlucky person. I hate my life and I just feel like ignoring myself and everybody else. I can hardly remember the last time I felt confident. Maybe that was 27 yrs ago.

    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...

    No, I'm not confident at all.

    At least not in my abilities. I consider myself good at some things, but when I see a person who does better than me in that field, instead of being motivated to do better, I feel like I shouldn't even bother trying anymore. For example, if I see someone who is really fit, I...

    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...

    I'd like to leave the house

    and walk somewhere far away to a field full of flowers & just lay there forever. And not have to worry about anything or anyone.

    It seems like everyone expects

    so much of me. It just makes me so anxious. It's hard for me to start new projects because I'm afraid to let someone down.

    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...

    so used to being told I was weird

    and that I was making it all up has lowered my confidence in my abilities and my self esteem. no idea what exactly that is.

    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 hate my look, my laugh,

    my smile, my personality; so I hide it. I hide everything from everyone and maybe that's why I'm alone, but I'd rather be alone than have friends who don't care to find the real me.

    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 get very uncomfortable,

    sometimes angry, when people stare at me. Everywhere I go, it happens. Women stare at me and give me these bitchy looks and men, they just stare. And stare. Sometimes I feel like saying "What are you looking at?" whenever I'm out in public. Somewhere in my subconscious it...

    Hurt people hurt people.

    I know because after years & years of hurt from different people I hurt the first person that ever actually cared about me. I couldn't trust him because I was used to fake people only. I was angry at them and all the pent up anger waste out slowly on that person. I don't ever...

    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.

    It Brings Others Down

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

    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..

    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 Wish I Could Say I Am Confident
