Can you help me be less self-conscious?

Can you help me be less self-conscious?

Whenever i'm around people (my family, strangers,relatives, even friends) i get so self-conscious of my looks, personality, and everything about me. .. I think it's because i was bullied so much in elementary school about everything. Or maybe it's because i am made fun of because my family isn't rich and i don't have expensive stuff or live in a big house like my classmates do (i get super self-conscious about that @ school too). Anyway, do you guys have any tips on how to be more sure of myself and be secure in who I am?
Thanks..

Insecurity is a normal part of growing up. Everyone goes through some people just handle it diffrent then others. The only way to get out of your insecure phase is to come to terms with the fact that you are who you are and love yourself for it. You can only start being secure when you accept every flaw you may have and know that some of them may not really be flaws after all.

thank you so much! idk... i guess i feel awkward because the friends that i do have invite me over to their house and it is huge and mine is tiny... i guess i'm afraid of being judged/ labeled as "poor" because i don't live in a big house, i don't own vera bradley stuff, and my family needs financial aid and stuff because we struggle to pay our bills as it is

I'm glad. It really doesn't matter what anyone thinks it you as long as your willing to accept yourself regardless. That's basically one of the best things to know in life.

Any real friend would not care if you are less wealthy then them or not. They only thing that will make it weird between you and a true friend is if you feel ashamed. People come from all walks of life and many people and up in very diffrent spots then they started in. In the end of doesn't matter if your family is wealthy or not it only matters what kind of See More▼
