Hi. My name is D and I'm in my mid-twenties. I've been struggling with low self-esteem for a quite while but it's been more intense since I got with my boyfriend of 11 months. He's a good guy and doesn't put me down, but I always feel like I'm not good enough for him so I drink to numb the insecurity and act out a little more extroverted.
I've been told I'm boring by a guy I really liked before and I'm quiet and shy. I have a handful of great friends who think I'm funny and out there but with strangers it's just hard for me to strike a conversation. Sometimes I don't even care to. I'm tired of feeling this way. I feel like there's always something missing.
