i feel that i have afew problems, and i was thinking about them today. one of them is that i have such low-selfesteem bacuse tons of people always made fun of me, and now i have tons of negative thoughts. i'm not usually optimistic, althoguh i can be at times, but alot of times, when im alone and i have time to think, i just think negative thoguhts about myself. i think what eveyrone's saying/doing is really affecting me in a bad way. i just wish that i could raise my self-esteem and feel happy with myself. there's more too. im a really good student. i'm in the honor classes and everyhting, but aside from the stuff that people say baout me, i have this reputation for being the "good boy" and i hate it. everyone jsut makes all fo these assumptions when they dont even know me. i guess i do that too....but i dont like how if feels, so ill try to think of that next time im gonna judge someone. and having the rep. makes me feel like..i dunno...like i would do somehting, just to prove people wrong. i need help. how can i gt my self-esteem up?
