    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...

    Are They Thinking What I'm Thinking?

    My life is basically the same as it was ten years ago. I haven't advanced at all, haven't matured at all really. I'm not saying I'm immature, I'm just not living the life one would expect of a 33 year old. A few years ago, while I worried about what people would think of me...

    Not-So-Girly

    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.
