How can I feel better about myself?

  • Sharebar


My problem is that when I go to college and sit beside my classmates, I don't talk to them. And when it comes to some logic maths class, I feel very alone and scared. I can’t even ask my lecturer because face phobia and nose problem - everybody will look at me and they touch their nose. I feel very scared, low, and sweat. I'm also suffering from diabetes since seven years ago. Presently, I’m 19 years old, male, and when I go play cricket, I feel very low and anxious.

I don't know what to do, sir. Please suggest how I can better my life.

Hello Saleem and thank you for writing in.

It sounds as if you have been suffering from self-consciousness and anxiety. The chances are you will grow out of this, but there are ways to control anxiety and help you relax.

I struggled with self-confidence when I was 19 and I was terrible at maths in school. You will come through this and feel happier in life. I suggest you listen to ’Quick Confidence Booster’ every day for a while.

You are just beginning in your life and you can do great things. : )

All my best,
