    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.

    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 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.

    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. :m167:

    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.
