I need some professional help

Postby leonardo » Sat Apr 14, 2007 7:59 am

When I say professional I mean someone who can tell me exactly what to do with the assurance that it will work!!!
I need to build up self-confidence and self-respect!!!
And not try to modify myself every time I fall for a guy, thinking he wouldn't like me if I stay myself!
And stop thinking that I can't get the guys I like cause for some reason I’m not good enough for them!
I’m really pretty, people have many times told me I should get into modeling or something, and there's always someone hitting on me, and every time I was drunk enough to try to seduce someone: I’ve always got the guy, and I’m intelligent, and I’m fun and cheerful, and interesting, and complex but in a good way!
But being sort of aware of all this, it doesn't help me get out of this really annoying state of mind!
It’s like I’m aware of it, but it's like an outer body experience when I say these nice things!
In practice I can't feel it nor enjoy it!
And that's all I want!!
There were times when I felt really great about myself, the way I should, the way we all should, but that was a long time ago, and short lived!
Please, someone, anyone, tell me what to do?

For me professional help would be seeing my threpist , she is a great counsellor. I see her every week. I seek help from her. She listens to my ploblem. She would be someone I call professional help. We would sit down. She listens to my problem. That really helped. After the session I feel all better.

Hey Leonardo,
First off I want to say that there is no sure guarantee that something is going to work for you or not work for you. You have to factor some variables into that possibility. First off the only way that you can get something to work for you is to do it. That's not to say that everything you do is going to work for you, but if something has been guaranteed to work then if you don't use it, try it, do it, whatever it is won't work for you. Second you need to let us know exactly what kind of help you are looking for; are you looking for something that you can do on your own, are you looking for something that involves others helping you, or is it something else that I have not listed here? Third, how much effort do you want to put into building up your confidence; are you willing to do whatever it takes, regardless of how uncomfortable it makes you feel or do you need something a little more delicate?
The reason I ask all of these questions is because we can give you advice until our fingers cramp from typing so much, but if it isn't something that works for you then all we are doing is throwing stuff against the wall, just hoping it sticks. Give us some ideas of what it is you think you need and we will do what we can to point you in the right direction.
Hope this helps,
