my story will probably be different then others. i wanted to share how far ive come. i know other people have it way worse then me but everyone has the right to be sad over something no matter how small. i am a 16 year old girl. my life is actually pretty decent, nothing to special but nothing to bad either. i went to a very bad junior high, therefore needed to change schools. when i got to my new school it was fine but then i ended up getting into sticky situations i had trouble figuring out how to get out of. i ended up becoming really insecure and not confident in any areas. it caused a lot pf pain on myself and embarrassment to my family. i went though months and months of struggling with friend groups, my looks, my personality, everything. people would always say i care to much about what people think and that i was the girl you could walk all over. this year, it was a hot and cold situation. i never had anything steady. my friend groups would be flakey and i got used by boys, i didnt know what was real or what was fake and i didnt know why i had to go through that. it made me think, is it me? am i not good enough? pretty enough? am i too annoying? too dumb? after a long while of feeling self doubt, something switched in me. i ended up watching motivational videos and shows and i started listening to peoples words. i stopped letting people get to me. i realized in the end the stuff i went though helped me become a bigger person as the end result. now i feel more confidence in me and i dont let peoples words effect me and i do not let people walk all over me anymore. i realized its not about what anyone else thinks its about you and what you think. if i think i am pretty enough then i am. if i think i can do something then i can. i obviously have much more confidence to build as i am only young but i have already come a long way from where i was. you just have to look at yourself and smile and think, i am good enough and i can what what i want. its ok to have some bad days and its ok to cry sometimes, but you need to learn to pick yourself back up after those cries. i now know how to deal with friend situations and how to not let it bother me and for some reason it just works. i feel like a brand new person and it makes me feel so much more free. alive. i am very grateful for everyone and everything that has helped me and i really encourage everyone struggling with insecurities or confidence to try and look at your reflection and tell yourself you are good enough because i can guarantee you, you are. i know its hard but listen to people, watch shows that will help you or read books that will help you feel more confident. i hope i can only go up from here. thank you for reading my story.
