    I'm Workin On It.

    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?

    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...

    Blushing

    I know this is strange, but sometimes my face will turn red for no reason at all. Sometimes it happens if I am in a store and someone I know calls my name out of the blue. I don't know what my problem is.
