Componence Asset List

Jeniffer, 17

I felt very self concious, constantly worrying about my appearance and saying the wrong things. It made me feel pretty low all the time.

I had never really felt completely at ease at my school but I did not feel like bothering other people. I just got on with it, for a long time trying my best not to be the centre of the attention anywhere. But where I saw my class mates doing more things together, starting to go out etc, I was feeling more and more miserable and losing my confidence. This made it even more difficult to join in. I felt very self concious, constantly worrying about my appearance and saying the wrong things. It made me feel pretty low all the time.

My sessions at PsyQ were helpful because it was good to talk with someone who had a good understanding of my problems and who gave me advice, things to practice and basically helped me rebuild some self esteem. To my own surprise I have made some friends in my school, go to parties with them etc., and I am even quite enjoying it. Something that a while ago was hard to imagine.
