Am I flawwed person?? - October 29th 2009, 11:29 PM

First off, I want to sincerely apologize for posting this for I'm unsure if this fits the criteria of the general section. With that explained, allow me to get to the point.

Sometimes I feel as though I'm a flawed person. I don't know why, maybe it's because I think about who I am personality wise.

By all means I'm not a mean person. Surprisingly, I'm rather mature for my age and overall I am a nice person. I also tend to help others out with school work if needed.

But even with those characteristics, I'm a shy person who tends to isolate himself from others when given the chance.

I do have some friends by the way, but I'm not the person who constantly hangs out with them.

But unfortunately, I also have been noted to have low self esteem as well as, lack of confidence. This is crucial, for occasionally people have been known to mess around with me.

I try to stand up for myself, but I just can't. I don't know why, but I feel like something holding me back. I don't know why, but ever time I try to stick up for myself it backfires and thus, it makes it worse for me.

I'm probably rambling right now and for that I apologize. I just wish I can get a straight answer.

hey man

first off i think i know what u mean. i used to get picked on alot to when i was younger....well i still do. everyone is flawed. dont worry about it. i know it sounds harsh but sometimes u just gotta take things and just keep going. i isolate myself alot to. ive come to the conclusion that thats just who i am. like i just like to be alone half the time. idk if that helps u or anything. but like i have the same trouble standing up for myself. the only times i do is when im having a really really bad day or week or whatever and ive just had enough. before i used to be kinda wound up about everything(dont know if thats how u are) but now im just like chill about things. i mean dont get me wrong u cant be to chill. but like when people give you grief just be like whatever about it. or piss them off back lolz. idk if you are still in high school or whatever but a thing that helped me break out was to hang out with alot of different cliques. or however u spell it. like i used to just spend my lunch with everyone. just walkin around chillin. maybe youll grab somethin out of what i posted or maybe not. idk most of the time my S4i7 doesnt help. anyways stay brutal.

I get your point, but I can't help but dwell on this. The primary cause for this is that most of my family rails on me for isolating myself and thus, wanting to be alone. I can't help it, but that's always been me.
I'm not like others who constantly hang out and are much more outgoing. Because of that, sometimes I feel envious of them for I wished I was like that.

Oh well, I'm probably rambling again.

it's hard for me to hang out with my friends too. don't let that bother you. (part of that is because they live far away and part of that is because...well, i just don't get out) And i'm totally happy being home alone, or just in my room reading or working on something. you're not a flawed person at all. there's no reason to worry about things like that. and a lack of confidence...I have that at times. it's okay though. you learn how to overcome these things. really...i've been working on it too lately. =)


I want a moment to be real
Want to touch things I don't feel
Want to hold on, and feel I belong
And how can the world want me to change?
They're the ones that stay the same
They don't know me, but I'm still here
