Why do people stare at me so long?
I'm just minding my own business, walking down the sidewalk, and almost everyone stares at me. I mean, not just a glance, but a stare. 8O I smile at them but they don't smile back, they just keep staring. Even kids do this, but I am a lot more uncaring about it if a kid does it. Mostly adult women do this. I don't stare at them bc I know how uncomfortable it is to be stared at, I just make quick glances to see if they are still looking. So, naturally, I think I must look funny/ugly/fat. However, I know I don't look funny-- if I did, family members wouldn't say I'm pretty (I don't have any friends to say so) and I would have never had boyfriends throughout my life. I also know that I am no beauty queen or model though.
I can't help but think these automatic thoughts-- they bring me down the rest of the day. Do people always stare at everyone so coldly, regardless of how they look?
This is so embarrassing to write this here. By the way, does anyone ever get SA here on this forum?
