    Title kind of says it all, i'm popular around college so it's like i'm expected to be confident but when you look at your past it's kind of hard to ignore everything thats happened and be what they want you to be

    Inside of me there are two dogs.

    One of the dogs is mean and evil. The other dog is good. The mean dog fights the good dog all the time. When asked which dog wins, I reflected for a moment and replied, The one I feed the most.

    When people compliment me,

    I act like I already know but I only act this way because I don't want people to think in fishing for compliments. People have never really complimented me before.. And when they do I feel like they're lying.

    I wear a mask. Lately, I've been learning to show my face, but it was particularly bad in high school. That's where I learned that when you're insecure, you have to choose between hiding behind your big mouth or never being heard. Today, I'm only just learning to have more...

    Insecure & Confident

    Like I have said before; there's things in my life which I am confident and others not.  If I'm insecure about something, I'll show it or it will show and if I am or act confident in something is cause I am.  If I am insecure, I will not act confident.
