    I'm Not Good Enough

    Obviously we all need a bit of this to stop us going off the rails and becoming sociopaths or Hitler/Stalin types. But with me it's not just a necessary corrective to rampant egotism but an all consuming preoccupation. My default position in life is worry/anxiety and...

    Trying

    I want to do it and I am getting better. I grew up mostly being the person who was always away from others (it lead to problems at school, but that's another story) and I am sick of being alone. I have been getting out, but still find myself worrying what is thought of me.

    I'm so self conscious

    and can be really insecure at times! It doesn't help that I have low self esteem and lack of confident so I don't believe in myself or accept myself... I am obsess about what other people think of me which isn't good at all because I should accept who I am and of course there...
