    I see sound advice thanks

    I disagree if i was just me no-one would like me, in all honesty.

    Hmm i guess but that's probably the bit i'm lacking in since i'm really bad at making stuff up and it's really obvious when i do
    Okay, fair enough, just trying to help.

    Pls i am no man sloot
    I don't have confidence but i can give no ****s, where both are similar, they grant the person very different qualities.
    In any case i don't really get nervous, can answer questions but i can give an answer myself which is a huge problem

    I understand it's just my personality which doesn't allow me to do certain thing, selling myself is one of them

    Haha, did your mum think you were gonna "sell yourself"? xD

    Now here are some problems, i think this is very good advice and hopefully i can utilise this well but, currently i'm doing most of those things, i am courteous i do help others, i do work(fairly) hard, definitely punctual and getting there on leadership skills. The next bit however be myself is the problem because if i wanted to be me then i'd be a lazy mofo and just be the classic stereotypical teenager who just lazes around telling their parents to do stuff for him and generally just wanting to be spoon fed for the rest of their life.

    Also thanks for listing those things down because it's not like i never did them, i did do those things but i never recognised them of any worth i always though everyone had those qualities...

    Also i guess it's true about making myself look good, because i really don't. I just try and hide behind in the shadows and just work from there because i don't want people to notice the things i do, simply because my nature of me is that i'm shy and there's nothing which can change that.... hopefully though i can change something and *boast a little* because i'm never the one to stand out from the rest, but when i do i say some stupid ****. Like i'll make a super inappropriate joke and everyone will be listening...

    Thanks for the advice though
    Happy to help

    That's fine and I understand, but you can't ask a question and then when people are trying to give you advice to help you, you can't then shoot their advice down because of 'your personality'. If you're not willing to take anyones advice and you already know that every piece of advice that you're going to recieve that you aren't going to take that on board then maybe asking the question was a waste of time.

    Sometimes you just have to suck it up and get on with life. Worrying won't get you anywhere.

    I guess..... i'm not totally excuding advice and ignoring it all, i do take some stuff in sometimes but sometimes i reject advice because i think i've a better alternative but my personality i reckon i could tune that down a little and hopefully i can be better
