What are the best ways to stop feeling so insecure?
A couple years ago my self-esteem took a major blow and I can't seem to recover from it. Before all of this I was confident and sure of myself, but then this.
First I had a few ex's leave me for this one chick, then a guy I was really crushing on turned me down just because he had a chance with her. Later we started dating and I really fell in love with him, but I still couldn't compete with her no matter what I did, and ultimately he left me for her.
I'm pretty, I'm nice, and pretty intelligent too, but this 5'4", chubby, flat-chested ***** somehow had something I could never give. I still don't get how she was so much better then me.
Then after that relationship, I fell into a pretty abusive one, and things got much worse. He took what ever self esteem I had left and destroyed it. He made sure that I felt like a worthless piece of ****.
But now I'm out of that and things are looking much better for me, but I can shake the insecurities they left me with. I don't know what to do
