    Hello, my name is Tigerlilly.

    Strangely enough, unlike some of you, when I was a child, I wasn't the last picked for teams in school, and I WASN'T picked on. I was popular as a child. Unfortunately for me, I was born into a family of a bunch of jealous women. Unfortunately, what they say about women, Black...

    I don't know why, but I'm always scared

    that my friends don't like me. If they don't reply to a message within a certain time or if they don't sound enthusiastic, I assume that they hate me. I get really distressed about it and I feel like I'm worthless and that no one loves me.

    I Know It's Irrational But.....

    I feel like people initially do not like me. I feel like I have to really work to make them like me. Maybe this is why I feel kind of awkward talking to people even over the Internet. I feel like I'm constantly being judged.

    I don't have a gray self image.

    Those that know me regardless of whether or not they like me generally respect me. I know a lot of girls at my school like me(I'm not bring cocky) but I generally can't for the life of me see why.
