I know the title sounds very arrogant, and I'm sorry if it offended you, but anyway back to the issue!
I've been called pretty and attractive by many people, and have been asked to model by agencies, I love the attention and all, but at school its completely different. As a child I was bullied a lot, I was harassed daily by kids saying "Go kill your self", and other things like "You have no friends, you're such a freak, I wouldn't care if you died". I really started to believe what they said, and got into a very depressed state, I wouldn't talk to anyone and basically shut myself out. This is probably one of the other reasons why I became so shy and socially insecure. I have a group of amazing friends today, and they've really helped me break out of my shell. Although this is the case, I have trouble speaking to people and making new friends. I'm always on my phone by myself in class, and when someone tries talking to me I get really awkward. It's to the point were people can tell that i'm very uncomfortable... Will I ever break out of my shell?
