    They Ruin My Life ≫.

    I'm self-conscious about nearly every part of myself.I can't really pinpoint *why* I began to feel this way about myself... I have studied a fair bit of psychology and it seems that people who were sexually abused in early childhood often become insecure and fearful adults. I was...

    Practically Everything....

    I have insecurities about: 1. The way I look: I am  27 but often get told I look between 17_21. It annoys me when people say I should appreciate it and that I will love it when I am 30. Even in a coffee shop the other day with a relative of mine. The member of staff asked if the...

    Very Insecure

    I absolutely hate taking pictures, sending people pictures of myself, having my picture as a profile picture, or looking at photos I am in. I think I look very big (which I never understood why that bothers me because I have never judged anyone else on their weight), although I...

    Pretty Much Everything...

    Right now I have more things that I am insecure about in my life than I have things that I am comfortable with. Not sure how long (if at all) it will take for the balance will reverse, but I guess I'm even insecure about being optimistic.

    Beating Them =)

    I used to say I "hated" many things about me, like my size- I'm tiny but round, and it upset me so much. I'm also ginger so...targetted by bullies A LOT. But then I thought...hey! Maybe I'll still feel insecure about these things but...I can inject a little more...

    I feel so perfectly imperfect.

    People might say it's superficial, but at the end of the day it always matters to them. I just wish i didn't have them so i can always consider myself beautiful all the time.

    they creep up on you when you least expect it.  Mine are all out in full force tonight. My biggest insecurity would be the feeling of not being worth it to anyone.   I'm far too easy to walk away from.  Far too easy.

    Feeling Insecure.

    Why do I feel insecure if I don't outright know if someone finds me attractive or not? If i'm not SURE they are into me or they don't express if they are or not, I feel upset. I'm not sure if this is just ego causing me to feel this way, or a need to feel liked and justified. And...

    I'm sad. Why can't I be prettier? Why? I feel like I would have it so much easier if I was. I'm 13 years old and here's a brief description of me: ugly,fat,big nosed, bad acne. No guy likes me and no guy pays attention to me. Sometimes this friend of mine, if you would call her...
