    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

    I don't know what it is but sometimes I can be very confident in myself and my abilities and other times I am not confident at all. I am hard on myself and any little mistake can feel like a complete disaster. Once I lose confidence in myself everything else goes down hill as...

    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...

    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...

    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 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...

    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 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...

    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

    Confidence is knowing that you can do something without trying to top everyone else whereas arrogance, you try to top everyone else and prove that you're better than them.
