This is going to be kind of long but thank you very much if you took time reading it.
I am a 13 year old girl. I am currently in middle school. I always feel so depressed and worried. I feel anti social at school because i only have 2 friends that i always talk to. They usually get bored with me because i don't say much. I never really have the courage to talk to anyone else besides them unless i have to. I never participate in class like raising my hand to talk. I always know the answer but i don't have the courage to raise my hands. I am very ugly. I have really pale skin and pimples on my forehead. People always stare at me and it makes me so uncomfortable. Everywhere, I go people stare at me. i only have 2 friends. I've never had a perfect day in my life. I have very low self esteem even though no one said that i'm ugly or anything. I don't want to feel this way anymore. I want to be like other girls, having fun with friends and spontaneous not worried about every single thing and how i look. My mom works a lot and constantly I only see her for 2 or even 2 hour every night before i go to sleep. She goes to work at 9 am and comes home at 9 pm. My dad is 56 and he has to stay at home to watch my 3 year old sister. My mom makes only $20,000 a year. My life is really unfair. I didn't do anything wrong to deserve this. I am extremely shy and anti social. People always say that I'm so quiet and shy and I hate that. I just got a haircut because my other hair was too boring. My hair is very thick so all i could do is put it in a pony tail. With this haircut, i can straightened it and put it half up. I never put my hair down before except for the beginning of the school year. Im afraid because people might stare at me a lot. They always have this strange look when they stare at me. I cry a lot and im very sensitive. What can i do to enjoy life more? Please help me I don't want to be like this anymore.
