    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...

    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...

    Wanna talk about insecure?

    If I lose your trust once.... That's enough to make me paranoid. I won't believe you if you say you're being faithful when I find things I shouldn't find on your phone. (Random women's pictures, racy text message exchanges, etc.)

    And So Not Worth Anyones Time

    I always compare myself to other people and wish i looked more like them. I guess i'm not like other girls. I don't want to be, but sometimes i get really frustrated i'm not ''as good or as cute or have this or have that''. I see people, happy, kissing, in love. Why can't i have...

    I hate people looking at me.

    I'm at a venue now with my boyfriend and people have to wait for me to participate in order for them to, which makes me really anxious because I can't stand being watched or potentially criticised. I've decided not to participate, and have upset my boyfriend because of this...

    I'm so insecure about my boyfriends ex's.

    . The more i slate them to him to try and make me feel better the more i push him away! He's not a pro at reassurance!

    Because jerks punished me.

    And made me wonder who is wrong. And meds wrecked me. And left my mind a war zone. Plus docs misdiagnose. And nurses told stories. And companies scammed me. And i was told thats modern business. In a civilized country. Lmao.

    This is very much me.

    I think it's a permanent resident in my mind. When I think I have overcome it, it crawls back and it hurts. I'm surrounded by girls who are so curvy and they are so lively and so different and so beautiful it's so ******* annoying and it ****** me off, why can't I be like that...

    My Insecurities Are Ruining My Life

    I'm insecure about several things, but the biggest insecurity I have by far is being in a relationship. I've been cheated on before, so now I'm always scared they're going to leave or cheat. I'm fine when I'm with current boyfriend, but when I'm not with him, I start to 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 overanalyse. The slightest thing I will blow

    it out of proportion. Nobody is supposed to love me. Nobody is supposed to care. For all intents and purposes, where it counts, I am not a person. This is learnt. Anything to contradict that and I just. My whole world is ripped apart. I don't even trust my greater intuition. I...

    Literally, I'm just in full hatred

    and disgust of everything that has to do with me. I cry 24/7 and my mom worries about me and assumes stuff, I can't stand looking in the mirror sometimes, and despite what people say I hate being myself I'm nothing close to "beautiful"

    that have cheated and lied to my face so many times. I was just in a relationship with this boy who I loved with all my heart and my insecurity has destroyed it. I have no one I can trust anymore.

    It is easy enough for someone to call you

    beautiful but it can be really hard to believe it. I get uncomfortable being around other people sometimes. I seriously struggle at being accepted for who I am which makes me become shy and paranoid. People say I look nice but I just don't see it.

    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 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...

    and every time someone laughs, I just assume it's about me. I could probably find a way to criticize every part of myself.
