self esteem

I'm an 18 year old girl. I have a family who loves me and a boyfriend + friends who love me too. I break down for no reason at all...even just listening to a piece of song which is sad...my mood changes really quickly and i think i have low self esteem coz whenever im around people i dont feel myself at all except with my family. i dont find a reason why i should have low self esteem because to tell the truth im a beautiful girl, thin, beautiful eyes and everythin and i know it but i still feel insecure around people and whenever im with somebody deep down i know theres somethin wrong and im not feeling confident with myself  and i dont find a reason why i should not. even when im speakin to others...i focus on what they are thinking about me and i mix up what im saying myself ..;/

please help.

You sound like a wonderful person who actually does have self-esteem! You recognize your good qualities, and that's awesome. At the same time, you sound like a very sensitive person who cares about others, including how they feel about you. Maybe a little too much? But that's okay! You're only 18, you've got lots of time to learn and grow and figure out how to deal with being around people. By asking these questions, I can tell you're the kind of person who really is working on growing, developing, and finding out who you are.

Would it surprise you to know that almost EVERYBODY feels insecure and worries about what people think about them? It's true, and that INCLUDES the people who seem totally confident.

It's okay to be sensitive, scared or shy - and other times outgoing and social!

And it's SO okay to ask for help when you're worried - like posting your question.

Keep on being the special, unique person you are - and keep changing and growing!
