Any advice please? Lately I’ve been having this mindset people aren’t going to say “Hi” or be nice to me. So then its almost like I freeze up and quickly turn around. I don’t this all the time tho. What might that look like to other people? I don’t know why I do it. Maybe because I’ve been so hurt in the past, I expect no one to want to talk to me.

On the other hand, a lot of people love me and I can make people laugh. My mom was almost crying one time and saying “You’re hilarious.” Haha I can picture if any of my friends and their parents were there, they would just love me so much more and probably hug me! Maybe see my “great personality” too as I’ve been told.

I expect people to be mean to me, but most of the time, they are nice to me. Like I’ve been talking to my neighbor who’s in college on fb. I thought he was going to say “Stop talking to me. I hate you.” But he never did 🙂 He was always so nice and our conversation flowed naturally and it was so comfortable, like he could have been family. And now that I think of it, when I was taking a walk and hadn’t freezed up, another friend might have said “Hi” and then I could have went up and continued a conversation. I get mad at myself because there’s always perfect opportunities to talk to people, but I always get so nervous. He gave me a ride to school one day, and later I said “Thanks again. Is there anything I could do for you?” He never responded, so Idk. He smiled at me in school so maybe I didn’t mess up too bad. I was thinking of inviting him over sometime.

ok one thing I’d say is to stop trying to reflect on all the missed opportunities and congratulate yourself on the good ones you’ve had! So often we get caught up on all the bad stuff that we miss out on being thankful to God for the awesome opportunities he brings into our lives! Another thing is to try not to care about what other people think, ultimately God’s opinion of you is the only one that counts, so be yourself, even if you act ridiculous (I mean who’s really gonna care in 24 hrs)?? Girl just hold your head up high, God loves you and he wants you to be yourself! Show the world who you really are 🙂
