I Am Really Insecure

    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 have gotten to the point of being

    so insecure that when people actually try to compliment me I don't take it seriously. I think they are joking and then i just feel worse about myself. I have the self-esteem of an ant..

    People always say I have pretty eyes: something

    about them being two different colors. I never believe them, but that's not the issue. The thing is that they only notice after we've been friends for years. Two of my closest friends just noticed last week, and we've been close for five years. My dad noticed last summer after...

    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...

    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...

    I just really hate being paranoid everywhere I

    go. I'm really rude to people in real life, but I don't bully them. I'm just too scared to be nice unless I know I can trust them.. It may not make much sense to sensible people, but it makes sense to me..

    I hate that I'm fat because fitting clothes

    make me feel insecure, and I hate being talk cause I can never find pants long enough. I hate my hair because i feel like people think I don't brush it, even though I do it's just curly... And I sit here listen to mean girls talk about me. Always happening

    I don't want to be forgotten.

    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...

    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

    People tell me I'm 'very pretty'

    and such. I just don't see and understand. I go to a new school and people always compare me to my best friend. I feel like she's prettier than me, because people around us always act like she is. The people around me, even my best friend, make me ugly. Like today, on a school...

    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 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'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.
