Low self esteem

Hi, I am selfkitten here, 19 years old and I am struggling with leaving my home. I isolated myself for 2 years afraid of being judged by people by my appearance. I am feeling unhappy about this and lonely. I am really insecure of my looks and its been hard to make effort to face people because of this. I don't have any friends and I hope I can make connections here.

Welcome and let me start by saying you have a friend here. As isolated I have become myself, I can not help but make and need new friends. So let me start by saying, hi my name is Jackie. I am sorry you are feeling that way. You can message me and talk about whatever you would like.

Hi Jackie. Thank you very much 😊 It be nice to make a few connections in my life. Depression and anxiety is hard. I been diagnosed with anxiety as a small child. My depression came from loneliness and insecurity about myself. It is a struggle but hanging in there. >.< I hope things are fine on your end.

Thank you, just today feeling a bit low. All if a sudden an overwhelming since of sadness has hit me, I do not want it to overshadow me and keep in a slump. Therefore, I am here just knowing I am not alone. And so far it is helping me I appreciate everyone that responds. Yes, insecurity & loneliness...those are two demons I am trying to beat as well. We will get through this.

No worries Kitten! :) If you like, you can check out my posts. I pretty much told my life story over the last day or so. Maybe you can find something positive from them :) I'll give ya a little piece of advice: It doesn't matter how many times anxiety and depression knock you down. What matters is that you get back up one time more than you get knocked down. If you can do that, then you got this! :) If you ever need to vent, you can always bend my ear. I've been told I'm a decent listener :)

Stay positive!

Brian :)
