I was under the false impression that as I aged, I would mature, grow in self-confidence, and leave petty school yard issues behind like a trail of bad memories.
I'm having issues again.
Feeling left out.
Not fitting in.
Looking longingly at the popular group and feeling on the egde, or worse, on the outer.
Am I having trouble with school mum's again?
This time it's my online community.
I'm feeling all sorts of insecurities, all over again.
I think I'm fairly well aware of my failings and so I do understand why this happens.
I also know how annoying it is for people to point this kind of thing out.
People don't want to hear negative, whinging, complaining over and over about yourself.
So that's not what I'm intending to do here.
My question today is...
You know the popular people?
The ones that are witty and pretty and are always in the middle of online mirth and merriment?
I could name quite a few here, but of course I won't!
Do they ever feel this way?
Do they ever feel left out?
And if they do, do they just shut up about it when they do?
Because you never hear a popular person saying they feel like a loser.
Is that because they truly never do feel like a loser?
They always feel confident within themselves?
I dunno, I find it hard to believe anyone could never have pangs of insecurity.
Lots of questions...
Anyone have some answers?
OK, I'll shut up and go away now.
But if you are a popular person, perhaps you could throw a few tips my way on "How to be an IT girl".
Tip #1 Stop whinging!?
