I must admit I do struggle with anxiety, but it's not the crippling sort.

Whenever I'm walking about I get worried I look goofy, so sometimes I'll slow down when I feel like I'm walking too fast and other times I'll check whether my bag is open or not...

Is this something that happens to you too?

I'm way past that tbh lol, I know I don't look good anyway and if people are going to judge me, let them, it's up to them what they do with their day, I still have things to do so I just go out and walk confidently and do what I need to do without worrying, chances are they aren't even bothered

The thought crosses my mind a quite bit but then I tend to go "egh ****in whatever".

Of course people are not bothered, I mean they have other things to worry about.
Unless you're a celebrity.

It would be weird not to :/ When I do get self conscious I find that I add a spring to my step... Eventually this turns to "bouncing"

Not really. I'm trying to develop a different "natural" resting face though, so have been conscious of that.

I occasionally fear people judge me but I already know I'm unattractive so I don't tend to regularly worry about it. I assume they don't think much of me and live my life fine.

I tend to worry about things I have fragile confidence about like my intelligence.

Do not worry I feel this way too maybe a lot more than what you described. I am nervous when it comes to walking around. ill check if my shoes are tied, my hair is neat, am i walking normally, if i'd dropped something etc even more in my school uniform cause its a skirt.

I more worry about how I sound when I wall past people rather than how I look. I always worry that I breathe too heavily or loud and that'll make me sound like an idiot or a creep or I may make some random noise like a snort by accident.
