Only Little Old Ladies Tell Me I'm Pretty.

I get compliments from older people who come into my work. That's it. I don't get attention from boys. I don't get complimented by girls. I'm too short. I look too young. The best I can do is cute on a good day. But I feel ugly. My friends are all beautiful and confident. And I'm the shy reject friend. My confidence (or lack there of) keeps getting worse and worse. I wallow in a pool of doubts and insecurities. There's never a day that I look in the mirror and find nothing wrong with me. I want to be someone's first choice. I want to get picked out of a crowd. I want to feel pretty and special. But that's not going to happen. Why would someone pick me when everyone else is so much better?

I'm going through a simular situation...or actually have been for a while. I picked up this book called Why men love b-i-t-c-h-e-s. it actually helps in all aspects of your self confidence. I'm starting out slowly but each day gets better. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is having doubts about themselves in any way. I hope things get better for you.
