    20. Put me in a social setting with my best friend and I suddenly gain an extreme amount of confidence. I could not care less what people think of me. When I am with my best friend all I care about is having fun. This can lead to very judgmental looks from strangers, but hey,- I am who I am, and if I want to run around Kroger cooing like a bird, I will. 

    My advice on gaining self confidence? Look around at who you are afraid of judging you. If these people are strangers remember that you are an amazing human being. It is not up to strangers to determine your self worth. If its you classmates you feel uncomfortable around, remember that its your life- no other person's opinion should cause you to hide who you are. Be yourself, it takes guts, but whats more frightening- Showing the world who you are or Hiding your true self away all your life?
