How to get over self consciousness?

I’m not a skinny girl,so I’ve always had a problem with my appearance. I’m always thinking someone is staring at me and thinking I look fat/weird. Is there a way to get over thinking my appearance isn’t good enough? How can I get used to my self and people around me?


  1. Just act like you don’t care, pretend to yourself you’re really confident, and soon you won’t be pretending anymore! Worked for me 🙂

  2. I’ve been dealing with this problem for years. Chances are even if you weren’t skinny, you would find some physical trait to be concerned about.

  3. I was always self concious at school. All you have to think is, i dont give one what people think of me, theres got to be worse people out there. What does anyones oppinion of you matter anyway? f*** them 🙂

  4. Well you have to realize that everybody cares and is self conscious about themselves, no one cares what you look like. Do you stare at other girls and think “eww shes so ugly/fat/stupid”? Probably not, and doubtfully anyone does to you either.

  5. I heard this before:
    20/40/60 rule
    When I was 20 I worried about what everyone thought about me.
    When I was 40 I didn’t really care anymore what people thought about me
    And when I was 60 I realized that people really weren’t thing about me much at all.
    I’ve thought about it a lot over the last few years and hope you think about it helps you too.
