    I don't really look at myself in the mirror

    anymore (except to brush my teeth and hair, etc) because as soon as I see myself I just feel disappointed. I don't think I'm expected to look like anything I just dislike most things about myself. Whenever I go shopping and stuff I get frustrated because no matter what I do, no...

    To insecure girls "I'm SO insecure.

    I need to have a boyfriend to feel like I'm worth something." I hear things like this all the time. So I have a message for you: You are insecure because you don't find enough about yourself to think you're awesome. So you look for it from men. No matter how much of it you get...

    I've always been insecure.

    Even as a child all I ever wanted to be was this "perfect" kid my parents were pushing me to be. And I think that's why I'm still insecure now, mainly because of how I look. Sometimes I just wish so, so badly I could be or look like someone else. Everyone assumes I'm very...

    I can't be myself at my school without getting

    judged. I try not to care but I can't do it. So I'm trying to switch to online. But I can't convince my parents. Fml I can't keep skipping classes because of anxiety, depression and insecurity.

    since I was a child, I was treated like I

    wasn't good enough for anybody. it sucks not having the self confidence you need to do the things that you like

    Insecure

    I never liked anything I did.  Even when people gave me sincere compliments.  I just feel as though everything I do seems so substandard.  Even though I know I tried my best, and that people are actually giving me positive remarks, I still maintain that tendency to...

    Everybody always tells me I'm pretty

    but I don't always believe them. I mean I have never seen myself through their eyes but compared to my friends (more on the popular side) I think I'm ugly and don't fit in.

    I have severe stuttering

    and I really ******* hate it sometimes. I can't even talk around my friends or be myself because I'm so self-conscious about it. I can't even answer questions in school without fear of being laughed at or humiliated. And I really hate when people tell me to "slow down" or "relax...

    I grew up being teased.

    .. About my skin tone and my weight. I've always wanted to make something of myself so I could brag but what I want to be seems impossible.. I want to model. But same time I can't show my body.. Not when my mind has been flipped inside out and all I see is scars and skinniness...

    I was unpopular as a child.

    I was always told to 'be myself' and was isolated and bullied because of it. I've had to put on the 'mask' of someone who shoots back and forth between being the funny guy and the quiet guy, because that's the first 'fake' version of me that was accepted by enough people for me...

    The insecurity really impacted me

    when I found out that my previous boyfriend, Chris, was cheating on me during our entire relationship. I talked to him about what my dad put me and my family through after we found out about his affair, and it didn't stop there. I'm scared to get too close and let others in...

    People talk behind my back.

    They push me around. I hear many things about my weight. The way I look. People make me feel like I'm not worth it. Anyone else feel this way?

    And So Not Worth Anyones Time

    It is stupid, isn't it. But I don't want to be forgotten, to be passed as another death with nobody to remember me. There is a reason for why I aimed so high, desperately trying to gain attention and preserve their memories of me so they would never forget this meaningless...

    I Hate The Girl In The Mirror

    I am insecure. I can never be satisfied with myself, I try to lose weight, hate my appearance, and actually believe I am not good at anything. Maybe it was because when I was in middle school I was severely bullied. Everyone including some teachers, called me ugly. I was the...

    .. I don't know how I become insecure because 5 or 6 years ago I wasn't, probably because when I had 7 years old I haven't seen a glass window and my nose was slightly crooked, so some of my friends teased me but after something changed because i started going out with boys and I...

    My aunt used to call me fat,

    everyone used to say "i'd be more prettier if i were thin", everyone used to laugh at my hair, now I almost never can feel good about myself, and because of this I started to be quieter and quieter. I wonder if I'll ever be able to feel good about myself the wat I did

    I'm overweight and I hate feeling like this.

    I have no willpower so dieting is hard. It's also really hard to get up in the morning so I never exercise so I guess I'll always just be fat and ugly.
