    I'm Workin On It.

    I'm tired of being afraid and not knowing why. I'm tired of shying away from human contact but in some ways I'd just rather be all alone. Free to be myself without the worry of judgement. Everywhere I look I see people that in my mind are better than me at EVERTYTHING and deep...

    Dearest Insecurity.

    When did I become your door mat? The one to take on the others that no one else would give the time of day? The ones that play on you, with you, and pretend to be something they're not. Insecurity I set you free, I don't need you any more. You can leave the same way you...

    Being Insecure.

    I hate being insecure. I've missed out on so much because of my insecurities. Worst is - it's absolutely fine by me when other people do things that I am too insecure to attempt. So why am I being insecure in the first place?
