I feel worthless - June 4th 2010, 09:45 AM

If you really knew me you'd probably think so too. I'm terrified of being judged, if I try to talk to people I'm worried they'll laugh at how dumb and boring I am. Nobody ever seems to want to talk to me anyway. Sometimes I just want to crawl into a corner and disapear.

I would not feel that way about you at all! It sounds like you may have social anxiety disorder but then again I'm not a doctor. You should go get it checked out because often times depression comes with anxiety and there's lots of way to feel better. Try to come up with a list of positive things about yourself so whenever you start thinking about the negative, you can look to the positive and start to feel better about yourself! Also, believe in yourself. You aren't dumb or boring! Find someone you can relate to with similar interests and I'm sure you'll be laughing in no time. Then you can go with them other places so you won't feel as worried in social situations. If you ever need anything don't hesitate to PM me.
Take care,

Whatever it is, chances are I've been there.
If I can make it out, you can too.

Dont worry about it, Im the exact same way. Im pretty boring myself. Dont worry about it though. I would go see somebody about it, because shes right, anxiety is a sign of depression.

Hey Helen.
You are not worthless, and you're not boring. You're just a little self-conscious, but that's okay. There are ways to improve your confidence and self-esteem.
First off, it might help to think about what makes you feel like people will laugh at you. Has that happened in the past, for example? What makes you think you're boring?
If you approach situations thinking the worst, then you're limiting yourself. I know it's hard, but try and approach things with an open mind. For example, if you go and talk to someone, don't think, 'They'll just think I'm boring'; try thinking 'I'll talk to them, and it may or may not work out, but who knows? I'll try anyway'.
Also, as Alessa suggested, it's a good idea to go and talk to somebody about this. They can help, if you let them.
All the best.

throw yourself into the unknown
with pace & a fury defiant.

Seeing as I am a 'people' I will tell you how we people think.
  1. To be judged you have to judge. We people don't judge for no reason. We may assume but that's not judging your character.
  2. Dumb people are funny. Why do you think you're dumb? Academics? Well we people are dumb academically too.
  3. Boring??? We people get bored of hearing the same things over and over again, we will give you a week of warnings before you confront to how boring you are.

That's an example. Don't take it personally, Telling you to get help is boring to me. Don't try to change because you'll be fake and phony like the gillions of people out there. All you have to do is instead of hide go walk out of the shadows with a really cool theme song and talk to some people. People you think are fun, smart and don't judge... You should join your school band, lol, just kidding. Them kinda people would want to talk to you.
