    Night And Day.................................sometimes

    Without me noticing, it happened so gradually, I became more and more concerned with how people saw me.  Looking back, it's easy to pick a starting point.  I work with a lot of academics -- PhD types. But I'm not one, so I always feel a bit inferior, except my brain was...

    I need to know, what do you think of

    when you look at my photo? What kind of person do I come across as? I'm not doing this out of vanity, only sheer crippling self doubt.

    I Just Wonder Sometimes..

    I would be so much easier for me if everybody would just tell me straight exactly what they think of me. I just feel like some people like me a lot less than I think they do. Like they're only with me because they have no one else to hang out with or something. I'm a really...

    Of course I wonder what people think of me. I try not to obsess about it and I definitely don't allow myself to be defined by the opinions of others but a part of me still wonders. I wonder what or who they see and whether or not they like that person. Its just a part of my...

    I'm Just Not Sure ...

    This is a further chapter in the current saga of how sorry I'm feeling for myself at the moment.  But, bear with me ... I haven't completely lost my sense of humour. I have to admit to enjoying that many people seem to appreciate what I write.  My ego is well-massaged...

    Don't Want To

    Not sure if it will ever go away. I want to stop coming down on myself if I am not sure. I want more self-confidence and have little. I want to not worry anymore.

    I really wonder what people

    that see me think about me and how they see me from their perspective, how I appear to them on first sight and after meeting me. Even what they think of me when they see a picture of me.

    I Care, But Does It Really Matter!

    I used to be very self-conscious, paranoid even by what other people thought of me.  It always made me shy around others in case i said the wrong thing.  It basically destroyed my social life and any hope of finding anyone.  After school and uni, friends drifted...

    I Think I'm Crazy...

    People tell me I'm beautiful, kind, loving and patient...even brave. My friends who I haven't seen face to face say that. Most of the others say that I'm determined, impatient and selfish. Which one is it?

    when they see me, I look different and dress different then the majority of people I usually am around. I've gotten better with self image but I could do much better.

    I'm bad at reading people, and because I'm just a self-conscious person, I always wonder what people really truly think of me, all warm fuzzies aside. It's not an easy question to ask though, because while I really want to know, there's also a part of me that knows I only want to...

    Don't Wonder As Much As I Used to

    When I was younger and a little more insecure I worried a lot about what people thought of me. Lack of confidence and a need to feel accepted were the main reasons. As I have grown older, my worries have lessened. I guess I figured out it didn't matter much what other's opinions...

    I always want to ask my friends what they think of me. The ones closest to me at school and such. But I don't know if they would tell me the truth. So I just wonder. I wish I did know though.
