Has anyone in your family ever said that you are not good looking? Why have people laughed at you? You know you have to like yourself more, I have been the butt of family jokes all my life and yes I suffer with low self esteem but I know deep down I am alright, I have 10 fingers, 10 toes, I can see, smell, feel, taste, walk, talk, I do have good thick hair, however I have big feet and can't get shoes to fit me in a normal shoe shop and never in my life have I been able to. I am carrying too much weight and trying to do something about
it, I have had breast cancer and only now have one breast, I have rheumatoid arthritis and high blood pressure, but you know what I am alive and breathing and I thank God every day for sparing my life from breast cancer.
I love myself because if I don't, nobody else will either. I love my husband, my daughter, my son, my mother and one sister. I love my friends also, although I don't have many, I have two good friends. i know that they all love me back, just like your family loves you.
So Vdogg, I am sure you are just like me. You can do all of the above that I can do, but you can probably walk into a shop and get shoes to fit you, yes you might be shier than me but I think that is because you don't like yourself enough for others to like you, you don't have any self confidence. I would bet anything that you are attractive, you probably have nice hair, a nice figure and a drop dead gorgeous smile (when you use it). You said yourself that you start the conversation first, well that is good - that's not being too shy, it shows that you have the ability to do that. You have to build your confidence up, START LIKING YOURSELF MORE.
You have everything going for you, forget those creatures who have laughed at you all your life. I endured that, being made fun of, it's tough but you have to rise above it. You are young, you have a college education, you have a job, you have a car, you have a family, you have somewhere to live and most of all YOU ARE ALIVE.
So Vdogg when you are getting dressed to go to work or to go out next, look in the mirror, put some makeup on and tell yourself that YOU ARE NOT TOO BAD and I LOVE MYSELF, and say that every day to yourself. Keep posting and let us know how you're getting on.
