I have incredibly low self confidence and low self esteem. I’m pretty sure I deal with depression, I’ve always been too worried to talk about it though so I can’t say for sure. I have a very hard time trusting people due to being outed by someone very close to me and due to many instances of personal things being posted online about me by classmates. Due to these things I have a very hard time making and maintaining new relationships. I’m paranoid that everything I do, people hate. I’m worried that people only hang out with me because they feel bad for me. I constantly feel like I’m unwanted by everyone I’m with. I feel like I’m clingy and that people hate how I want to hang out with them. It takes me years with someone as a friend until I fully believe they like me, so keeping relationships is very difficult and stressful for me. I’m telling you this because I want to be your friend but it’s quite hard for me to feel even remotely wanted. So if at any point you feel like I’m being too clingy or annoying or that I’m being a hassle please just be honest with me about it. I’m 100% ok with you telling the truth to me like this, because it lets me know that at least you’re being honest, which is really important to me. But if you do like having me around let me know that, too. Like don’t constantly tell me, but like just once in a while be like “I like hanging out with you.” It helps my self esteem more than you could ever know.
tl;dr I have issues, and they often make it hard for me to make new friends. Be honest with me, even if what you need to say is bad.
