How comfortable are you with yourself & how do ensure you do not hurt yourself?
I am currently rather comfortable with myself. Although sometimes, i have issues with my appearances and looks and maybe how people have an outlook of me, but i would make it a point to share it with my parents and my close friends(mostly from primary school) and seek their comfort or opinions on such issues. Although there was a period of time when i felt left out of the class and could not gel together with the class and work together due to our discrepancies, I tried to work together. Till today I'm still facing this problem, but to conquer it, I feel that we must share our views with the group/ person that you are unhappy about. We must be "thick-skinned" and put the unhappy past behind and continue on with life and ignoring any comments that would not support our "youth-hood" growth. Cherishing our youth and continuing each day with a smile on our face.
Well, I have NEVER faced a problem of hurting myself, and have never been "emo" to the point of wanting to hurt myself, but as I said previously, any grudges, hatred or disagreements we have with a certain person/group, letting ot out will help us. In fact, researchers say that holding on to a grudge can lead to not only emotional problems, but medical problems too.
