18 year-old girl with low self esteem
I have had a problem with my self esteem since I was in primary school. My low self esteem is caused by my physical appearance. I'm fat and everyone tells me that. So I'm just wondering why people around me keep telling me something that I already know. They seem to make my self esteem goes lower.
Besides this, I think that I have no special talents. I'm not good at singing, drawing. I'm not good at anything. Not to mention, I'm not an outstanding student in my school. I don't even take part in sports. Other than that, I'm so shy. I reckon it's because of my low self esteem.
I don't really hang out with my friends. I spend most of my time at home. I want to mix with everyone but this low self esteem prevents me from doing that. Sometimes, I feel like everyone around me is amazing and I'm the only one who's not, so I'd rather be alone. I will enter college pretty soon. I'm afraid this problem will affect my future. I really hope that you can help me. Thank you.
