Can you NAME them?
I'm inconsistent, doubt myself, second guess myself and twirl my hair.
Quite a few, yes. It would be a long list. Maybe later.
I have a few, but my main ones are my body (I try to keep it as toned as possible), my appearance in general and I have a few obvious scars that I'm always conscious about.
Yes, competence, intelligence, etc.
Well.. To keep it short, I'm often insecure about whether or not I'm okay as a person. I'm insecure about whether or not I'm likeable. I also frequently question my own abilities. Now that doesn't sound too good. Yeah.. I'm a pretty insecure person overall.
I'm insecure about whether or not my friendship is something beneficial to another person. I worry that they put up with me for whatever reason -- it's different from person to person. It's quite sad, I don't think I felt this way until a few years ago...
Loads. Mostly about failure, perfectionism, living up to my own expectations, etc.

I've got an eating disorder. 'Nuff said.
I have struggled my entire life with a rare form of OCD called BDD. It has an 85% suicide rate, I have also been a cutter throughout my life because of my disorder. So ya, my insecurity is that I see myself distorted when I look in the mirror, my features are uneven on my face, and I dislike my nose. However, I do not have an eating disorder, my visual and cognitive distortion is based on asymetry. I term it as my 'visual szitsophrenia. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iAuc2xAM7-8 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RT1tnfejcWI
Main insecurity: Thinking that whatever I'm doing in my life is worthless.
Are you.. are you me? Well, there are a lot of things you named I can recgonize in myself. And Ria, here's an e-hug *e-hugs* Last Dawn, I think that all the time <.< Damnit.
I have a ton. My main one is isolation and forced disconnection.
I am really petite. A lot of people think I am half Japanese. I feel really small around everyone else and feel that I will only be considered cutesy by everyone instead of pretty. People are afraid to hug me, too. They think I will break.
Correction: Do you have many insecurities? Yes. -Whether or not I'm a good person, or just good at hiding how bad I am -Whether or not my friends actually like me all that much -My freaking hair. Yeah, moment of vanity. -Notice my constant need to justify myself? Why do I owe everyone an explanation? Sigh... -I almost automatically doubt that if I like someone they cannot like me back
I have a lot, and I can't really list them because they are a bit complex. Nevertheless, almost all of them stem from this one single (horrible) word: Uncertainty.
I have plenty of insecurities. They just about all relate to the fear of rejection in some way.
Yes, I am you. Which ones do you relate to?
