How do I feel comfortable being on my own High School?

Well I'm a 15 year old girl. I'm a sophmore in High School, my brother is a Senior & gonna graduate this year. He's always looked out for me & protective of me with guys & when we were little he wouldnt let other kids picks on me, he was the only one allowed to lol. I've always had my parents too but my brother was wround in school & wth other kids playing. In my freshman he did the whole embarrassing thing where he said I'm his sister & if any guys hurt me or mess with me he would beat them up! But guys never messed with or been bad to me because my brother way there. I feel now that I'll be on my own, guys will start to take advantage of me, or be creepy or even stalking me. I'm not a kid anymore, I know I gotta start taking care of myself without depending on my parents, brother or friends all the time. How should I start building confedence in myself on be comfortable? I know some of girls don't have brothers or sisters to look out for them but I guess I was spoiled.

Well I'd look at it at a different perspective. If a boy didn't know you he wouldn't know you had a brother until you told him, so it's not like a bunch of creeps are around you all the time. And besides, boys aren't going to think: "oh her brothers gone, now we can blah blah blah". I'm not saying you won't get creeped on, that could happen, but having a brother doesn't always scare them all away, so if you haven't been totally creeped on yet it's probably because the people at your school are generally normal people.

Honestly, it's highschool.. If you're not a "popular" kid, you won't have much confidence.. It sucks. The way I got my confidence is that once I hit highschool, I started dressing better, did my hair good, and started doing my makeup.lol sometimes having a boyfriend or atleast flirting with one, will boost your confidence.

you could take a fighting class I'm sure no creeper would mess with you if you know how to fight plus it build a lot of confidence in yourself. also it sounds like you already have confidence but maybe not a whole lot of believe because wakeing up that day knowing that your brother might was going to pick on you gave you alot of confidence or you would have avoid school.:)

Try to show then that your hard to break and show then tht you don't care... At some point they'll leave you alone once they figure out they can't get to you.
