Hi! I’m a 15 year old girl and just recently I’ve been feeling intimidated by pretty girls. I have acne on my chest and back, I have braces, and my hair is naturally curly. I can’t help but hate myself every time I see a pretty girl, and it’s interfering with my everyday life. I’m too scared to go out, because I feel as if they’re judging me. But I never feel this way when I’m with a friend. When I’m alone, i become insecure all over again.
Also, I’ve been homeschooled since second grade. I’ve just recently started going to a private school.
Please tell me I’m not the only one. I’m not even sure if this is a phobia. Maybe it’s just an anxiety disorder from being by myself for so long.
