Are you insecure? If so, what about?
Yes. I am insecure and it's a bit of a conundrum. I want to be well-liked and it bothers me if someone does not like me. I am always too worried about what others will think about me if I do "x, y, z". But deep down I know that people will respect me more if I have more respect for myself.
Another issue I have is not knowing what to say when I'm around new people or in a new environment. And I don't have the confidence to want to be seen or hear anyway. I believe that publishing my book, detailing my life and all my insecurities helps me feel more confidant.
