Top Ten Things You Usually Don't Feel Confident or Comfortable Doing

We all have situations in which we do that we have little confidence in, something that makes us uncomfortable but we just can't let ourselves avoid it. Enjoy!
The Top Ten
1 Asking someone on a date

Getting rejected is has been one of my worst nightmares when asking girls to the prom. Thankfully, it's never happened to me but I'm pretty sure everyone gets this feeling.

Rejection and failure are my biggest fears, so I'd rather stay quiet than profess my feelings to someone and have them not be returned.

Oh my gosh?!?! I hate this horrible cliche! Just ask them out for Pete sake! If they like you, just give a passionate, long kiss!

2 Admitting you like your crush

Oh great, someone already took this from my list. Anyway I felt awe, embarrassment, goodness, and awkwardness at the same time! This is how it started. His friend introduced me to him after one of my classmates (I told him to do this) told him I like him. Then, he looked at me and I ran like the wind. HE IS SO CUTE! Anyway, after a day you'll get over it like I did. After he found out, I kind of regretted it because the crazy doofus brushed it off like it was nothing. D:<

I really liked this one guy and I think someone told him I liked him and then he completely ignored me. I fell into depression and all I ate that weak was skinny pop, chocolate, and tears. The worst part was was that we used to be best friends and now he won't even talk to me.

I had to do this during a sleepover when we had "Honesty Hour." It's difficult, but it's not that bad as long as you're telling trustworthy people.

3 Giving a speech

The other day I had to recite 161 words of Edgar Allan Poe's "Anabelle Lee" and I had all the words memorized, but when I got in front of my class I went completely blank, messed up my words, and had to look down at my paper three times. I was excited to recite it, but failed while doing it.

I actually have social anxiety so this is nearly impossible for me because I get all nervous and I may end up screaming, passing out, or crying. This was more directed to giving a presentation but this will probably happen with speaking to a lot of people I don't know because if I talk to someone first, I literally force the words out of my mouth :(

It's easier if you have a strong opinion on the topic or know a lot of information about. I could talk about Thermopylae to people all day because of all the information I know about it. Of course if you don't have either one of these, well, your pretty much screwed.

4 Telling your parents you lost or broke an expensive item

I break things a lot, almost always by accident because I am bloody careless. Also, my stuff gets "lost" or stolen sometimes too. Not everyone in this world is honest.

Try telling them that you just put three holes in the wall and one in the door. Sticky tape fixes everything.

You just have to tell them. It's better to tell them the truth right when it happens than to hide it and/or lie about it

5 Being interviewed

You have maybe an hour to talk to someone, and that one hour changes the course of your life. It can affect you positively or negatively, so it is uncomfortable to sit through that hour and hope it's helping you!

I immediately forget everything when this happens, just when I'm super nervous or not in the mood at the moment I guess

Nothing can beat this

6 Seeing a homeless person stare at you

Man I always feel guilty when this happens, I once went to a city and I saw many homeless people. I wanted to get out my money and give it to them but I was with a bunch of people so I couldn't :(

In Vegas you'll encounter these types of people a lot. In 2015 I was at Vegas and I was in front of the Mirage hotel waiting for the volcano to go off when a guy in a wheelchair came up to me and asked for money (along with the other tourists that were on the strip). Of course, no one gave him any money (including me) so he just left us alone.

I know, it's Sin City for a reason, but it was still really awkward.

I feel so guilty when we make eye-contact, like their situation is my fault. I mean, what do you do? Do you smile and walk on, stop and have a chat or give them your last few pence that you were going to use for your fare home? Gah, I just feel so awkward just thinking about it.

7 Meeting a girl's parents

How 'bout meeting a boy's parents? Both my boyfriend (who used to be my crush) and I are afraid to meet one another's parents. The reasons are secrets, so I can't say why.

I'm surprised I didn't put this higher. This is such an uncomfortable experience because you never know how protective the dad is.

Not really both the parents but specifically the dad. It all depends on what he thinks about you. At least that's what a friend told me.

8 Auditioning

Especially those of Saturday Night Live.

SNL worker: Alright, you have five minutes, go.
That's it. And in other auditions you have to sing or do something else stressful.

To be honest, auditioning isn't that bad. I played my saxaphone at an audition- and I did well. I do pretty well under pressure

Auditioning isn't that bad to me, you just try your best and that's it

9 Singing in public

I don't mean to be rude but singing, especially very loudly in public would make you look like a fool.

I sing mostly everywhere I go as long as no one actually hears me. I love singing in front of people.

I can't sing, but I love singing, so I do it when I think no one is around. Then someone hears me and asks if I'm okay

10 Going on a date

Definitely the first one. I'm sure that will be an interesting experience when I decide to get a girlfriend and go on a date

The Contenders
11 Asking for more toilet paper in a public bathroom

Just plain embarrassing.

12 Meeting new people

I drown in pools of sweat in these situations.

13 Trying not to throw up

Once when I was 18 I went to school while sick and I accidentally puked a bit in my mouth. I tried to hold it in but I failed and spewed everywhere. Oh yeah it was on the bus, too, and I had to clean it up afterwards.

I know this too well, I accidently overdosed on NyQuil and I threw up on the bus, my friends had to clean it up, it was so awkward, my hands smelled like cherries. Okay, that was a little too detailed, sorry :/

Yep, but I had to do it in the trash can because I was sitting on the toilet.

14 Eating food that doesn't taste good at someone's house

It's the worst! I once had to eat bloody chicken, so I ate a bit of it and said "Oh, nice meal, I'm stuffed". The mother told me strictly to eat the rest of my food. I felt like puking.. Worst ever

It's horrible- I finish the dinner anyways because I don't want to be rude. Since I became vegetarian, though, the parents let me choose what food I want to eat

I actually like all food except chicken nuggets, which nobody would give me anyway, and so I'm comfortable with eating it anyway.

15 Walking around boys

All the boys look at your butt. I mean really boys! Boys are my favorite humans to "play" with. But when they look at your butt when your walking past them it should make all young girls fell really weird?!

Yeah, boys think it's so weird when they see people walk. One time, I walked and a boy asked me if I was an alien!

Yeah cause this is possible to do.

16 Conquering your fears
17 Going to the doctor
18 Being around offensive jokes
19 Crying in front of jerks

That's silly not uncomfortable.

20 Letting your parents check your search history

Or your progress reports, report cards, and everything from school

21 Telling someone your weight

That's not a problem. As a matter of fact, I'm 218 pounds. I just told you my weight

I actually don't care about this. I weight 89 pounds.

I'm 40 kilograms because I'm hella small but meh it's not really a problem.

22 Telling dirty jokes around your parents

Oh lord...
Or when your friends are trying to tell them to your parents. That happened during 2 minutes of my 14th birthday. Some of the most uncomfortable moments of my life.

If so, then tell the this simple one. The boy fell in the mud.

I'm afraid it's the other way around for me.
