I Am Self Conscious

    I go through times when I feel completely

    confident. However, I become obsessed with some of my least favorite aspects of myself. They might seem so ridiculous to others but they bother me so much. For example, the shape of the side of my face seems SO ugly to me and I hate when people aren't looking at me from the...

    Am I attractive? I'm not fishing

    for compliments, nor do I have a low self-esteem issue. I would just like to know your opinion. Thank you for your input💘💋

    Every now and then. But I don't really care

    anymore, what the hell and I gonna do.. I was born like this, so if people don't appreciate the way I am, so be it. You can only handle so much perfection at once, take your time.

    I'm self conscious about almost every part of

    me. I mean I guess most girls are like that, being self conscious and critical about themselves and their bodies and all. I'm also a perfectionist so that just makes everything worse.

    I hate going out in public

    because I think that everyone is judging me or making fun of me behind my back. I feel like people are disgusted with how I look and that they wish I would just die
