    I want to love myself more,

    I don't want to feel fat. I don't want to feel ugly. I know I'm not deep down, I don't know what's wrong with me. I weigh at my most 135, last time I weighed myself I weighed 124. Maybe I just hate when my body shaped? I don't know. I have days where, I don't want to get out of...

    if she's amazing, she's not easy.

    If she's easy, she's won't be amazing. if she's worth it, you won't give up. If you give up your not worth it. #let'sstartalloveragain

    I've changed my profile pic to one of myself.

    I'll be changing it back to a random pic soon. I am a little uncomfortable with people seeing me on here, I don't want someone I know in reality to be on here reading my problems. But I do want u guys to see me at least once in a while so here I am. I hope no one knows me.

    I have realised that I lost myself a little

    after breaking up with my ex. It's not that he changed me or anything but I became more insecure and worried a lot more than I used to when I was with him. Before I met him though I was strong and independent but now I am single again I want that back. I'll admit I have been...

    I'm that girl that likes to take pictures just

    to get the compliments. It boots my self esteem! And gives me more confidence in my every day life. There are those that give me a lot of crap for it but if it makes me happier, then whats the big deal?

    The Sad Story Of Me.

    I used to think I was pretty. Maybe in 1st grade, then I didn't care about looks, I was fine. A kid. In second grade that is when it began, my sister would always call me ugly, fat, dumb. I was a kid. I believed her. I wasn't fat. But it made me so sad. When I developed my...

    or not and I click "hot" on all the unattractive girls because I feel like everyone should feel like someone likes them.

    I used to be confident last year.

    But after I lost weight, people kept telling me as if it were some kind of compliment. I didn't even notice until everyone started telling me! I became insecure after that. Still trying to work on loving myself and being confident again.

    I hate having to walk around in school

    or anywhere and constantly compare myself to everyone. I hate feeling like everyone likes my sister more. I wish when a boy liked me he wouldn't go away after a few days. I wanna feel beautiful, happy, I wanna love myself but I have no idea how to even come close to that.

    I think the first step to confidence is taking

    responsibility for your lack of self rather than blaming others. You are responsible for your own happiness and only you can make a difference.

    I am always not confident about myself

    as I fear judgement. I keep having the feeling that I am not good enough, as if everything I do offends everyone. And should anyone comment on anything I do in just a slight negative note, I get all upset about it and I don't get why. It's like I have yet to find myself - who I...

    I have no clue how to make friends.

    I have no confidence either. I can't think of anything after saying hi. Other people say to talk about common interest, but I have none. I'm the most boring person to talk to, ever.

    People always say that I'm beautiful.

    I am a guy with ears

    that stick out and a big forehead and because of this I have long hair to hide this. I really want short hair and to feel "normal" but I am so nervous and self conscious. Because of this I never feel good enough and have no friends.
