i cant say that i have been in that exact situation ever
but i have been in a similar one
i didnt have many frnds when i was younger (like 5-7yrs ago). i didnt smile much then and was generally sad.
i was always frnds wid the most famous girls in my class but i was just a frnd whom they would talk about their problems...wat i mean is i never really hung out with that cool group where there were lots of boys etc at dat time.
i also used to feel bad as 2 y my famous frnd always get the attention
and this went on for like 2-3 yrs and each time it was a different girl.
then i transformed myself...it wasnt like that i sat down 1 day and woof... transformation done...no...it was a gradual process and something i didnt even realise until much later
wat happened was that i became more confident
i didnt wait for people to come and talk to me 1st...boys or girls
(note that i was never interested in a relationship...just being frnds wid people)
if i liked someone and wanted to talk to them i started taking the initiative.
i still have frnds who are much more famous than i am and guys run around them but it doesnt affect me anymore because those same guys are my frnds to and have fun with me 2.
so dont be sad...or atleast pretend to be happy always
smile alot and i mean alot
tell people to shut up and get lost when u dont like wat they are saying
90% of the guys in my class are scared to talk to me 1st because they think i will shout at them...i once confronted one such guy and now he is my very gud frnd.
so show ur real self to people but dont be an open book.
watever u do be confident.
also i would like to tell u that i am not at all pretty and not confident about my body
i am not thin rather m quite chubby and m also pretty dark
but i try to ignore and rise above it in front of people and privately i try to regular with my exercise and watch wat i eat.
