    I've been getting more confident

    and I chose a dress to wear for tomorrow. My Ma instantly asked who I was trying to look cute for. I guess she's use to me wearing jeans.

    I dealt with years of no self confidence & just

    I moved from the northeast to Florida

    for college and I feel like while I was down there I was either socially or emotionally deteriorating. I was there for 10 months, never made one friend because I was too scared, shy, and worried of what people thought of me.

    This is something I have never had- self

    confidence. I have always measured it by the way people around react to my actions. I have always let people decide my worth and guess what, I have always been proven worthless! And all that I do is sit and cry about why me? why am I always the wrong one? why do I have to get...

    When i was a kid i use to be over confident

    and full of energy and never had a problem socializing after years of being picked on and betrayed i isolated my self and contained my emotions. Ive opened up a lot more while growing up but i still hide in the shadows sometimes

    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...

    My whole life I've been bullied.

    Since primary school I've been called every name under the sun, and expected to keep quiet. Now everybody thinks they can push me about and that I'm the verbal punchbag of the class. Retaliating doesn't help, I've walked out on numerous occasions, stood up and yelled but it...

    So I tried to talk a picture today.

    first time in a LONG time. I kept deleting the ones I took. I couldn't stare at myself for too long but my sister(who usually doesn't care) took one of us together and made it easier to do. I posted it on my Facebook and I felt really accomplished. ?

    and I don't think the other girls like me. I always feel like people are talking about me so then I start looking awkward and that will make them talk about me more but the guys seem to like me but that's always.

    I feel like I'm more myself on ep

    than on Facebook. Being able to express myself on this site feels like I am free. On Facebook its a fear to post because of judgements or not receiving enough likes. Hopefully one day I can post in Facebook without insecurities but right now I need time.

    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 have a fear of blushing.

    So much so that I blush very easily and it interferes with my life. I am fearful of speaking up at work or in groups because of this. Anyone else in this boat?
