    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 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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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

    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.
