Extremely self-concious - December 26th 2016, 10:11 PM

Let me start off this by saying that I don't have a eating disorder, but could't exactly find another place to express this.

So, all of my life I have been extremely insecure about my weight. I always feel fat in whatever I wear, and have very few days where I actually feel confident about my weight.

There have been times where I have skipped meals just to try to get skinnier, but it would never last more than a day or 2. But recently, I have been eating more because of the holidays, and that just made everything worse.

Does anyone have any advice on how to feel more confident or less sad about myself?

Hello again☺️ Firstly, I can completely relate to how you are feeling, I hate how i look and every time i even catch glimpse of myself in a shop window or something, i feel like crying. Also i know what you mean about skipping meals to try and get thinner you're not alone in that i do it all the time and i know others that have before. Don't ever feel like you're the only one or that you're odd for feeling this way. Im not sure whether or not this will be helpful but i often find that if I'm if I'm having a particularly low and unconfident day, sometimes i cover up my mirror or try not to look in it, obviously its only a short term method but sometimes it helps me. That may have sounded a bit weird but it sometimes works for me. Also i have certain friends that make feel less self conscious as i often feel paranoid as to who is looking at me and all that jazz so if you can think of anyone that you feel really confutable and really relaxed around i would suggest trying to hang out wth then as much as possible and made if you feel like it, talk to them about how you are feeling. I know this might not be helpful as if people tell me this it just goes straight over my head but I am sure that you are a gorgeous person who's kind and already know from you helping me earlier that you are very compassionate and concerned about other peoples feeling and i can tell you that although it might not seem like it, but that counts for much more than whats on the outside. 🙂
