I 'm Wondering How Other People See Me

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 15,210 People

    I am usually my worst critic.

    There are times when I really don't like who I am. Once in a while, I encounter individuals who tell me how special I am... I believe them for a while but then when I'm left to my own thoughts, I start deconstructing what they say - that voice in my head, insisting on telling...

    I've never belonged to any specific clique in

    school. I'm not one of those people that has friends in every clique either. In some classes in super quiet and shy but if I know someone in a different class I open up and am very talkative. I literally everyday I change my style being country style one day, gothic the next...

    I do not think a person has to be insecure to

    wonder this. The only reason I can think of why this matters to me (I am not having to go to a job interview of anything, thankfully), is very simple indeed: do they see the person I strive to be....if I could only know that what is said they see is really truth and completely...

    Just because I drive a 911,

    and wear a Rolex doesn't mean I'm a pompous *******....I'm 100% the opposite!! I enjoy nice things (and love to share) I came from almost nothing, and busted my *** for what I have! Finally enjoying life at 40!!

    I Don't Really Care

    I don't much give a click how most people see me. I know who I am (mostly...I'm still working on it...but that's part of life). My friends, my real, true, best friends, are probably the ones who know me the best because I share how I feel and who I am. Even more so these days...

    I'm so insecure, afraid,

    paranoid, and suffer from terrible anxiety but I'm wondering if everyone else sees me as some scared puppy too. I'm also very shy and quiet so do people see me as selfish and stuck up? :/

    Human Condition

    I think that it is pretty normal to wonder how others see you... I think the only time it really becomes a problem is when you are obsessed with how you appear to others. I have been a total outcast my whole life and I get stared at where ever I go. My brother told me that it was...

    I often wonder, I crave acceptance from people,

    maybe it's part of what drives my submissive nature, maybe it's because I'm insecure or maybe it's because I just care what people think. In day to day life, I'm fairly quiet until I know people, when I feel confident, I become the life and soul of the party although there are...

    I mean don't get me wrong I think I'm attractive but it's interesting to see how others see you . It's like your so used to how to look you don't even realize how beautiful you are . And it's not even just about the beauty on the outside . I'm talking about inner beauty
