    I'm Destroying Myself

    Through my life I've been through a lot of family related troubles. For starters, 4 years of my life were spent as a child spending evenings in a hospital room getting fat on chips whilst my sister recovered from a life threatening illness. This post is not going to be modest in...

    Specific Confidence

    I can't ask out girls. I've tried, I've been in situations where I could have asked a girl out, but I can never get myself to do it. I can't confront friends. And I can't face enemies. Sometimes, people walk all over me.

    I have been bullied all my life.

    Quite literally for being myself. I have never tried to be somebody I'm not and I regret that. I need braces as I have the most horrific teeth that stick out. I am often called "rat" or "rabbit" by people I don't even know. I finally have braces but wish they would work faster...

    Having No Confidence Is Going To Ruin My Life

    How do I sum up my life in this tiny little text box? The deadline for my Master's thesis is in a week, and I did the research but I don't know how to write it up. I'm afraid if I talk to my professor/adviser about it he'll get mad that I've taken so long to do it and that it...

    I Can't Just BE

    I wish that I didn't think if somehow I woke up one day and was comfortable with how I look then everything would be okay and I could have the life that I guess I've always dreamed of or hoped for. I've lost another 15lbs but for some reason I'm incapable of seeing it myself. My...

    its strange how ive gotten to the point

    where i dont even have the confidence to correct my dad when hes about to throw something out that could be recycled. Its not like he would get mad or anything, he would probably just say "okay" and not throw it out, but for some reason i dont speak up

    I literally have like no confidence.

    I don't understand because I have it all, but I'm a deep thinker as I'm sure you all are, but I can't seem to think positive too much or have the confidence in things I want to achieve. Feel like crying most of the time, but now my emotions are like a robot and I don't know what...

    I wish I knew how to build up my self

    confidence. It's extremely low or maybe even non-existent. Buying new clothes doesn't work, neither does getting my hair done, putting on some make up or trying to act like I'm confident. It's really bothersome because I have terrible (social) anxiety which keeps me from doing...

    You Can Do Much Better Than Her...

      Okay, so let me start out by saying that I used to have a pretty positive opinion of myself, I didn't think I was too fat or tall or anything like that. My entire opinion of myself changed when I was thirteen, all because of a stupid idiotic comment made by some boy in...

    Capable But Not Confident
