    Can't Go To Prom

    I am only 15 but I dread my senior year in highschool. When I was in 9th grade my friend wanted me to join her for homecoming. But my experience from the 8th grade dance made me not want to go. At that dance I was left alone and nobody wanted to join me. So I cried. I fear that I...

    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 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...
