    The fact the society has made every single

    person wish they were someone that they're not, ******* kills me. I hate that I walk through school worried about what other people think of me. Because of society, I hate everything about myself

    It sucks not to be confident.

    Worrying about how you look and how other people see you is almost crippling to me. I want to be able to walk out of my house and feel comfortable in my own skin. I'm very over weight, decent height, short hair and an odd face (not that ugly not pretty). I pretend to have...

    I'm writing this cos I'm really low.

    And I don't wanna talk to anyone. I just wanna tell someone. I'm really losing confidence in myself. Noone wants to hang with me or flirt. If I go to party, nobody gives me a second glance. I feel worthless. Cos no guy wants to be with me and no Person wants to be my frnd. And...

    For a while now, I've been home,

    unemployed and frustrated. Even though I know I'm preparing academically for a major career direction, but it's still very difficult some nights to convince myself about the choices I've made. I feel sometimes you just need a win to banish your demons and get your life back on...

    What is it with him? No matter what I try sex

    seems to be an issue. How do I get him to want this? I feel like being married it shouldn't be so hard to seduce him. Yet he seems to flirt with every other girl. Tonight we have people over at our house and he is so keen on the one on one time with all the girls, but when I try...

    I really hate myself

    and my personality, I truly suck, I can feel like garbage and immediately pass to feel fine like in a second, and the next second I'm garbage again. I hate this feeling, its like having a crush on yourself and not knowing if you like you back.

    Whenever I see women in movies,

    TV, magazines, etc. I think they are perfect and gorgeous. But if I see them with my boyfriend I get extremely jealous and mad if he looks because I know I will never look like that. They don't even look like that. My boobs and butt are small and it is hard to gain weight even...

    My self confidence is zero.

    Especially public speaking, I get terrified. I had a coursework to prssent a presentation to the class (about 15 people) about the chosen topic. I totally skipped it and lost 7% of the final marks. Felt like this is a problem when I start looking for jobs and getting interviews...

    I am so ugly, fat, and worthless. I am used to being told I would be cute if I lost weight. I am used to guys ignoring me. No guy ever talks to me and at my age I'm supposed to be sleeping around and dating a bunch of guys but I haven't done anything with anyone. I am worthless...

    Just remember this...

    if someone is putting you down, hurting you emotionally, making you feel like crap because of something you say or do, because of how you look, or because of the things you like - just remember that THEY are the ones with the problem. Not you. They hate themselves or something...

    I can be incredibly insecure at times.

    Most things I try to do end up being complete failures which has made me scared and left me not wanting to take risks. I doubt myself all the time and I wish I could have more self-confidence. I feel so bad about whatever I do that I wish I had a bit of confidence in my self.

    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...

    I am 20, gay, and I am ugly.

    I hate how fat I am, despite losing 75 pounds. I also hate my facial features which is something I can't change. I think I look ugly when I smile cause my cheeks puff up like the fatty that I am.
