Just Cant Shake this Feeling ... - June 3rd 2010, 11:37 AM

Okay, i feel reallyreally stupid putting this on the internet.

Lately I just can't feel good about myself. I feel so ugly and unattractive, and unpopular and annoying. I just feel like everyone is staring at me, and I constantly worry about what people think when they look at me. Everytime i hear someone laughing, I think they're laughing at me. I used to be able to feel sort of good about myself sometimes, but lately, after some comments from people, I just keep getting more and more paranoid. I just want to know what people think of me, and how I look and stuff, but I can't bring myself to ask anyone, cause it'd be too weird.

Usually id talk to my best friend about this, and she'd make me feel better, but shes having a hard time atm and i cant bring myself to put any of my problems onto her. And I dont trust any of my other friends enough to talk to them about this stuff. It's really starting to get to me, and I'm stressed all of the time, losing sleep over it. I know it sounds stupid but I dont know what's brought it on, I'm usually a happy person.

This is mainly a vent, I dont expect help, lol.

Hi there, sorry to hear you're going through a really bad time right now.

You say that you don't want to burden your best friend, which is completely understandable. Do you not have any other type of support? Maybe a teacher/doctor/councellor? I know you said you don't really trust your other friends. If you were able to talk about what is going on to someone, then I'm sure this would be a great source of help.

Have you ever tried writing down why you feel upset or drawing etc? I know this has helped a lot of other people on TeenHelp. You just need to think about all the good things i.e. the people who care about you, who you care about, the things you enjoy.

Hope this helped. Hang in there.

I think thats just how you feel, and the fact is that you're definitely much better than you think you are =) its extremely noble of you to keep things from your friend to not worry her, but the fact remains you have to handle your feelings.. remember that you can always talk to someone, anyone who you know is a good listener and that will definitely help things out in a lot of ways.

remember one thing you could do is always watch a meaningful movie, or just read a heartfelt part of any book you like =) that'd do wonders.

i hope everything gets better. And to me, you seem someone someone who's nice to talk to =)

caring always.

Those who have went through more pain than everyone else, and want to protect anyone and everyone they know and care for from that pain, are stronger than everyone.

we come, we help, we stick and never leave. pm me anytimeee!

I found back in School, the people who ran me down and laughed at me and didn't like me was not because I was unattractive, but because I was probably alot prettier than most of them and I had my morals and my virginity, I didn't smoke or drink or do drugs, which all of them did and their self-worth was already going down a great deal, so they pick out the people like me to laugh at and ridicule because their jealous they don't have what you have. So the moral of this story is, people who talk about you or try to make you feel bad about yourself are jealous of you and trying to hide that fact by being nasty because there are special, really awesome things about you that they'll never have.
Never think of yourself as unattractive or less worthy of respect because you are beautiful inside and out, and you have to believe that about yourself and keep your head up and ignore stupid people who try to get to you because they have no lives, and just have no purpouse and have empty lives where they can't do the things you can do.
