I can't accept compliments but take criticism personally.

Sometimes I struggle to be assertive and often just go along with others to keep the peace even if I'm the one who's affected.

I also struggle when people are nice or compliment me, it's because I have low self esteem and think they secretly don't like me.

Same here but I can't blame people for disliking me, I dislike me (understatement!). Plus, most people seem to be full of crap a lot of the time and they say things that they don't mean so how could we tell if it's a real compliment or a fake one anyway? So either way it's hard to believe when someone compliments me. :confused0006:

I don't know when I have outstayed my welcome or if I am leaving too early.

Feeling like I am not doing something right - anything that isn't perfect = not right = failing.

So you struggle with low self esteem?

On Thurs, my psych said I could 'do with a confidence boost'. She's right.

Heard something useful recently.

Shame is the feeling I am bad.

Guilt is the feeling I did something bad.
