I'm scared that nobody likes me romantically, I'm scared that I will always be the "best friend" or "one of the guys", I'm scared that I'm going to end up alone.
There are a vast amount of truths I have to aid you today my friend. And I shall explain this thoroughly since I know lots of people (including myself) have been having this troublesome thought. Here are my findings thus far:
First and foremost, you are going to be alone for the majority of your life. And you need to learn to be alright with that. You’ll also need to learn as much as possible about yourself and to love yourself as an individual. I’m not talking about going on an ego-trip of any sort, but find it in yourself to appreciate your mind and heart and how they work. Because if you can’t even figure that out, how are you supposed to do the same for an entirely different human being right?
As far as physicality, everyone has insecurities with their appearance and image. That’s a fact. (Well maybe not Beyonce.) Anywho, you need to also keep in mind that we live in a world of more shallow than deep individuals. And people are going to judge you on your looks no matter where you go, but what you should truly care about is being healthy and content with how you feel. Now when I say healthy, I don’t necessarily mean skin and bones nor obesity. Do your body a favor and make it happy and healthy by eating the right foods at the right hours and then let it decide for itself what size it should be.
Now once you’ve done those things, it’s just a matter of waiting. Also, never put your entire dependence on the existence of another person. Just do whatever it takes for you to be a happy camper :) Whether if it’s sitting patiently in your favorite coffee shop, or maybe attending some kind of social group of hobbyists and such. To each it’s own.
