Sometimes when I feel down I just sit down,take a deep breath and think about all the achievements I have accomplished and the people that are very special to me such as my favourite teacher, my twin brother and my mentor

Hi. How do I get from listening to everyone's opinion about me to being a never mind. People classify me as a missy girl who is full of herself. I always listen to their bad comments and let them bring me down. I know I can achieve more,but I fuss about opinions of people who do not like me. I have shot myself in the leg by choosing fake friends yet again. They pretend to be sweet in my face but talk bad things behind my back. I cry myself to sleep trying to be what everyone wants me to be. How do I lift my confidence and eliminate bad habits.

Hey, Kitty thanks for your comment. I know it's hard sometimes to ignore the voices of people that are around you but I know that you can listen to them without taking what they say about you seriously. Try doing some self-affirming exercises where you tell yourself 5 things you love about yourself every morning. You can also read the articles under the confidence tag. These articles have tips that can help you boost your confidence.

Hi Springster, thank you for sharing. You should consider talking an adult you can trust about how you feel. Try talking to your closest friend in the group about your feelings. And figure out what are your triggers (if there any) - what makes you feel low? What makes you feel better when you're down? Focus on what uplifts you and makes you feel better

Hello queen you don't have to trust anyone if you don't you have such platforms made especially for us to share anything and get yourself a diary. The first time I got myself a diary I felt so stupid but when I reflect on all the things I've written there it has helped me in many ways . you do what is best for you if your gut feeling tells you don't share than dont

Hi Aliciakagiso. Often, being lonely makes you want to withdraw even more, but there could be people trying to reach out to you.

Hi Scarlett. Thanks for sharing your comment. It's normal to think about death, no one is immortal and none of us can escape death but it's important to rather focus on life and listening to music that inspires you while you're alive. Live to the fullest and be happy.
