    Yeah, but I think most people know it's me tbh

    Same, even if the person is only a tiny bit smaller it gets to me as well.:lol:

    It's quite sad:lol:, but It's good to know that I am not the only one who feels like this.:five:

    Sometimes when I'm trying to articulate what I'm saying I end up stuttering. I hate it. Always in front of large groups too.

    Start with something that you're least ashamed of?

    I'm ashamed of all my insecurities because most of them are pathetic.

    But if you write them down in a list you sort of can look at them and stare at them and then they're not so bad in the grander scheme of things.

    My biggest is probably my weight (though I'm in the process of changing that)

    2nd thing is my height, not because I'm short but because I'm 5'10" I stand out in a crowd usually and I really don't like it because short people tend to look at me in disgust which is actually quite intimidating

    They are to me. They link into my mental health which is never going to be fixed. Ok, so I've got over how I look, I don't care ao much if people stare, but all the rest of them will always been important in the grand scheme of things.

    We all have them.

    I've never been socially awkward but have a tendency to over-analyse my interactions. I guess I sometimes worry about how I am perceived.

    If I get a coffee I will wonder afterwards if I was friendly enough to the barista. Maybe I didn't smile enough. Maybe they thought I was a bit rude. I am obsessed with always being at my best for everyone.

    Ridiculous really.

    When I say grand scheme of things, I mean there are probably people who wish they were you, or wish they had the circumstances you have.

    There are days when I wake up and I think, wow I'm so lucky there is a roof over my head and food in my fridge.

    There are people who are blind and deaf and paralysed. There are people who have hours left to live. Minutes even.

    Then I think about my insecurities. I write them down. In the grander scheme of things, they're not that important.

    People might wish to be me because I'm getting a good education, but I'm still miserable inside each day. You can have all the wealth in the world but it won't mean **** if you're not happy internally.

    I don't mean to be rude. I know people are like that. My family know people who died just yesterday. But my mental health makes me for a difficult person to be and if anyone knew the true extent of it, they wouldn't want it.

    My stomach. I was always bloated as a kid and thus bullied for looking pregnant. 9 years later- perfectly normal stomach but I always have to have it covered/something that makes me feel like it's held in (tights mostly)

    I'm insecure about how I present myself to others in social situations. What often is the case is that 'inside of my head' I will be perfectly fine and happy, but outwardly I will present myself as something that I am not, depending upon how I feel at the time, and how stressed I am. It is most annoying.

    I don't feel like I am ever good enough, not truly so I try my best to cover it up.

    Really? Glad I'm not the only one. :hugs:

    In Topman the other day I asked where something was and then worried for the next 10 minutes that I asked too 'forcefully' if you know what I mean. I'm not anxious though, just obsessive about appearing my best.

    Apparently I look like a viking but I just don't see it
    Neither do I.

    I've always been scared of people just pretending to accept me when they're friendly. This goes from people on the street to close friends and family sometimes. If people don't like me, I'd rather them not hide it.
