Growing up as a girl is not an easy feat. I recall that I was always filled with self doubt and insecurities. I remember envying my beautiful popular friends in high school. I HATED picture day. I was always placed next to the most attractive people in the year book. It was like I was the part of the sandwich you don't like so you take it out. To this day I still hate getting my picture taken.
The seeds of insecurity are rooted deep within us are they not?
I was a girl who didn't have a "click" that I hung out with. I got along with everyone. Although I didn't date much in high school and having a boyfriend meant you were pretty…and likable…and pretty and not to mention popular.
But nobody liked me like that. I was always told that I was such a good friend. So I often found my Friday nights dateless sitting at home on the couch watching some show on t.v. wishing that I was out with some cute guy that I currently had a crush on.
High school is rough! And yet I survived. I went through college and dated a little bit and had some relationships. Some good some bad. :-D
My self confidence is a lot better than it used to be but I was thinking about how we constantly compare ourselves to others and putting ourselves down.
Okay Now it's your turn! what was or is your insecurity you struggle with?
