    especially around girls. Because of this my friends joke about it, and I laugh along, but it actually gets to me mentally. And around the general public, I don't talk, I listen, which places me in the back of the crowd..

    I'm just so lazy... most of the time I can't be bothered with anything. I feel like such a failure most of the time because I either don't bother to do things or I do try but I fail anyway... and then I get shouted at and told off. It just makes me feel like I've failed...

    I'm Spoilt As Can Be

    I could have anything I want in the world, but I feel like a failure. I'm supposed to be in college -6th form- but I fought with my mum. She wants to send me to america, to straighten me out, because I'm a "hoe". I barely passed my GCSE's, I didn't even study...

    I don't know if it's from my mom always telling me I was a disappointment, or if I really am a failure. Either way, I feel like one eternally.
