My entire life is insecurity.

If I don't reply to you, it's NOTHING PERSONAL. It's my ANXIETY.

Everyone is insecure about something.

I'm insecure about my intelligence.

Physically, my left shoulder hangs lower than my right. I worry sometimes that people will notice this, but most of the time I feel fairly secure in my appearance. I don't really love or hate how I look, but I'm definitely overweight and have been a lot more overweight in the past.

Insecure in general about what I like/am interested in and I'm uncomfortable sharing those things with people.

I haven't got any securities.

But if we're just talking about physical insecurities, make yourself comfortable. This could take a while.


I love Society. It is entirely composed now of beautiful idiots and brilliant lunatics. Just what Society should be.

I have the body and limbs of a tetherball pole, pale skin, boring life and off putting and pretentiously opinionated personality that no one can relate to. Something that is inversely expected of someone of my social profile.

The truth is strictly what the ones in power perceives it to be.

Enjoy any good things, even the little and menial ones, as you will never know what impending distresses could descend upon you in a moment.

Yes tons of stuff. There are many subjects I don't feel comfortable talking about on this forum because sooner or later someone will (and often has) used them against me. Posting anything specific in this thread is very unwise.

Some people heard my words and thought it meant they knew me
Truth is, I don't exist, I'm just a soundtrack to your movie
Some background figure in a story that's already scripted
And what I feel's just felt for you to hear me ****ing spit it
I jump in many different heads through these words and poems
Always hoping maybe the next leap'll be my leap home

No, I'm perfect, it's an insecurity in itself maintaining such levels of perfection






And all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty death
Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow,
A poor player that strut's and fret's his hour upon the stage and is heard no more,
It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

Yep


Both physical and mental for me. I'm not very mature for one. I don't get people.

Hah, its closer to this for me I feel. Listing the things I feel secure about would be quicker.

Yep. Mostly my skin problems and the fact that I’m bad at being social.

Thanks but I piss a lot of people off so it's inevitable.

Some people heard my words and thought it meant they knew me
Truth is, I don't exist, I'm just a soundtrack to your movie
Some background figure in a story that's already scripted
And what I feel's just felt for you to hear me ****ing spit it

Yes, about not being good enough.
Not a good enough daughter. Not a good enough sister. Not a good enough girlfriend. Not a good enough friend. Not a good enough employee.

List goes on 🙂

This year I discovered that I have a heart defect, so my insecurity is keeping up with physical activities. On the positive side, all of my other insecurities jumped out of the window, which is great.

i'm serious
