I'm way way to insecure for my own good.
I have massive trust issues and get insecurities about everything to so with other people and myself.
It's ruining my life and I need to fix it asap.
I feel like I'm losing friends on here because of it too, which is upsetting.
Does anyone have any advice for me?
Thankyou in advance
I'm sorry you feel this way. Firstly as hard as it is, you have to try and allow yourself to get your self-worth from yourself. The best way to achieve this, is to set small goals, that only you know about, and give yourself a pat on the back once you complete them. The more you complete your small goals, the more you will start trying to up your game, aiming for slightly higher ones. It doesn't have to be anything big to start with, just small ones, like for example, if you have trouble speaking with strangers, set a goal of smiling at one, work up to a hello, and then a bit of small talk.
Secondly, start a positive diary. At the end of each day, no matter how down you may feel. Try to think of three positive things in your life. Write them down before going to bed each night.
Thirdly, exercise and diet. It is easy when your down to almost "give up" on your appearance. Try some light exercise for 20 mins a night, stuff you can do in your room. Jogging on the spot, star jumps and squats. Listen to some good, "motivational" music as you do this. Then cut down on any foods that are "bad" for you. I'm not saying stop but cut down, try to eat clean meats and vegetables and drink fruit juice. I think these changes do much more good than counselling, I hope you all the best.
