    I can recall a time when I had quite some

    confidence in myself. Nowadays it seems I am slowly , very slowly getting it back. I wish I could be more confident, especially in social situations.

    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...

    It ****** me off that you have to meet a

    standard to be noticed by society. You have to be stick thin (size 4-6) , flat stomached, long hair, have a thigh gap, have long legs and be tanned. I'm size 8, I have an athletic cross curvy build, I have long REAL hair, I don't have a thigh gap, I have average length legs...

    Self-confidence... I had plenty of

    This is something I have never had- self

    I just want some confidence,

    a sense of self awareness that everything us going to be alright. I don't know what it feels like to be confident. I have NO friends and I don't do anything but sleep all day. I just wish I could have some confidence and motivation for just 1 day. I just wish.

    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

    I hate having no self confidence.

    Always when I talk to people, I think that they automatically dislike me because of how I talk or look or any other reason there is. I am even scared that people on here will think that I am dumb or annoying when I type anything on here.

    I used to be a slim size 10 with curves.

    I loved my body and felt so confident. But since I've got unwell I have gone up to a size 14/16 and I feel miserable. I'm covered in stretch marks and scars. I wish I could feel confident again, but when I look in the mirror I just see this fat and ugly person. I hate it.
