    I think insecurity is the root cause of all my

    problems. If I can get over this, then I will feel as though I can overcome anything.

    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...

    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"

    I've had past boyfriends

    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.

    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...

    People make me so nervous. I am so afraid that everyone will instantly dislike me. That's why I don't show people the real me until I've known them for awhile and am positive they won't leave me. I'm trying to break out of this insecure state of being though. Wish me luck, I...

    I always feel like someone is looking down on

    me. ALWAYS. Whether it be because of how I dress and act or because of who raised me. I guess I don't really help myself either, walking around with purple hair and suspenders but it's me. I'm insecure and scared of rejection but I won't apologize for being me.

    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...

    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.

    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
