Are there any good ways to get over insecurity?
I have always been athletic; from soccer, to hiking, to running...I love being active. At 20 I have what my sister calls a 'ballet' body. I'm 5'4 and I weigh about 105lbs, but I'm extremely muscular. I have a six pack and the rest of my muscles are pretty obvious too. Now, I feel sort of inadequate. I was at the gym working out with my bro-in-law, who's a crossfit trainer. We were doing some squat reps when these 2 young ladies walked by. They were what they call 'curvy'. Anyway, these guys all stopped to look at these girls and one of them turned and said, "One of those girls or the stick chick." Everyone laughed. I was so embarrassed. I'm used to people calling me skinny and this and that; but I'm active, so I don't really pay it any mind. But hearing so many guys laughing at that made me feel so...disgusting and ugly. Now I don't feel so great about myself. I literally made myself sick eating an entire box of cereal and a full pot of chilli. I need some way to get over this before I go on this downward spiral of insecurity.
