  • Self confidence

    So I'm 16 and I've been struggling with my self confidence for a while. I get really confident on one day and am completely myself and then the next I think everybody is judging me and act awkward. I hate this about me. And I feel like when I am not too confident on those days, I act rude to people. I honestly don't mean to. My lack of confidence just comes off like that which then makes it worse becAuse then I feel like they don't like me anymore. And also I feel bad when someone who is in a good mood goes to talk to me and I'm not feeling confident because I act awkward and I feel like it makes them think I am fake because some days I'm fun and happy and others I'm not talkative and boring.

    How do I get over this and not feel like I have to be fun all the time for someone to like me? And how do I socially cope with being not confident but still able to be myself while chatting?
