    I Feel Ashamed At How Shy I Am....

    As I am 25 and should be past all of this now. Today I met a friend through work and we went out for lunch. She brought her kids and also her husband. I wasn't expecting him to come so felt really awkward as I don't know him and find small talk excruciatingly hard. I felt that I...

    I wish I had small little legs

    that could rock a pair of shorts, but I've got a big bum & thighs. I'm embarrassed of my cellulite and it seems like it won't go away no matter what I do :(

    I have no confidence in social situations.

    I can go to a party with people I have known for years, and still stand there not knowing what to say. I cannot go up to a lady and chat her up. Why would she look at me? Then I see people chatting and using language I would not dare. It confuses and annoys me.

    Grow A Pair

    My friend in my band section was listening to me talk about problems at school and stuff. People laugh at me, talk about me; and I never do any thing to stop them. So she promised that she would grow me a pair of balls. so I could use them. :D

    I realized today how little confidence I have

    in my school work. In my Physics class, my teacher would ask a question, and like always, you have to raise your hand to answer. I guess I'm OK at science, because whenever she asked a question, I can think in my head the answer...but I can't bring myself to answer to her. I'm...
