I need to gain confidence? How? Please help!
I've been bullied, and physically beat up by my older brother for years. No matter what I do, I can't get self confidence, at all. I believe every negative thing I hear. Fat, ugly.. Etc. Even though my friends always tell me otherwise.. I can't seem to believe them. My brother used to kick me, and punch me and make me call myself fat, ugly, or that I'm a b*tch. If I didn't, he wouldn't stop hurting me. It's so hard for me to actually accept any compliments. I really need confidence.. But I don't know how to get it! I've played many sports, been on teams. Normally that gives people confidence, but that never worked for me. I really need help... :(
