Self esteem.

So my friend said something to me last night which really upset me. She called me a nerd, and she said I’m in the ‘bottom group’ and she’s in the ‘second to top group’, for popularity. She said I’m such a chicken it’s no wonder I hang round with the ‘nerds’. I mean, I thought that was quite a bitchy thing to say, so I told her. She immediately apologies and said she could help me become more popular, but I’m not asking for popularity, I’m just asking not to be judged for who I am, I’m asking for people to respect me, and asking for people to be kind enough to me that I don’t have to worry about hanging out with my friends, I’m asking not to have to dig deeper into what it could mean when somebody calls our friendship group ‘cute’.

and besides, you can’t really take something like that back. She apologised and I just told her to forget about it, but those words are in my mind forever now. 

I don’t want to be a ner but

thats who I am

i just want to be confident

i just want to be happy


One thought on “Self esteem.”

  1. Being popular is over rated-someone who is really a true friend will accept you for who you are. Embrace who you are-don’t give power to others or let other people define who you are or who you should be. The choices you make now will dictate the life you will live, be true to yourself. Learn to love yourself-take confidence that as long as as you wake up every morning putting your best foot forward and don’t harm anyone else you are better off than most people. Most people that say mean things or insensitive comments is a reflection about them-they are the ones with insecurities and sadly they can only feel good about themselves if they put others down-don’t let anyone make you feel that you are lesser or inferior-be yourself and don’t apologize. Everyone is unique in their own way-surround yourself with people who will be a positive influence, who will add to your life, who will root for you-don’t compromise with this. You are in control of how you want to live your life, you are in control of who will be in your life, and you are in control of who you will allow to influence your life, your feelings and your thoughts-Best of Luck!
