In life we all face our troubling times, some that are faced by everybody and others only by a few. But at end of the day we all have our insecurities that others may call trivial or vein but that doesn't make them any less real. My biggest one is probably my underbite, though now days it doesnt affect me that much, growing up it was a heavy burden. Anything you can imagine I was called, I was a weak kid so I faced the occasional beatings. which as you can imagine didn't help my self confidence but surely helped foster my trust issues.

But although it was hard some good came out of it, it made me love my alone time so much sometimes I'm borderline anti-social(not a good thing) but I'm lucky my friends try to understand and are still there for me. I also love 2 of the "nicknames" I got and they usually make me laugh when I think about them.

Dreamworks: I love this one because I'm always stuck in my thoughts and it has been my facebook's cover picture since 2012.

Chinocchio: This one I think is because it reminds me of the good times in Kenya and I got it during one of my last weeks there.

Another recent way I've found to laugh at my underbite is through this meme you all know too well. Honestly I'm kind of surprised and disappointed that no one ever came up with it before.

What do you think? Personally I think he could be my doppleganger.😂

The point of this rambling is to say that even though it can be hard we gotta learn to laugh at insecurities and mistakes otherwise we might have a miserable life. Which is why I'm creating this mini contest and although the prizes may not be that attractive it's still free money and you have nothing to lose.

FRENCH

Dans la vie on a tous des problèmes, certains auxquels tout le monde fait face, d'autres par peu de personnes. Mais tout le monde a des insécurités que les autres peuvent appeler banales ou veines mais cela ne les rends pas moins réel. L'une de mes grandes insécurités est sans doute ma sous-occlusion(mais pourquoi le français doit toujours tout compliquer? 😂), même si maintenant çe ne m'affecte plus autant, grandissant c'était dur. Chaque nom auxquel vous pouvez penser m'avait été donné, j'etais faible alors j'avais aussi droit à des battements occasionels. Et comme vous pouvez l'imaginer cela n'as pas aider ma confiance en moi mais a surement favoriser mes problèmes de confiance.

Mais même si c'etais dur du bien en est sorti, ça m'a fait tellement aimer mon temps seul des fois je suis anti-sociale( pas bien) mais j'ai de la chance mes amis essaient de comprendre et sont toujours la pour moi. J'aime aussi 2 de ces "surnoms" et d'habitude ils me font rire quand je pense à eux.

Dreamwork: Celui ci j'aime bien parce-que je suis tout le temps perdu dans mes pensées et et je l'ai comme photo de couverture sur facebook depuis 2012.

Chinocchio: Celui ci je crois que c'est surtout parce-qu'il me rappele de mon temps au Kenya et je l'ai reçu durant l'une mes dernières semaines là-bas.

Une autre façon récente que j'ai trouvé de rire de ma sous-occlusion est avec ce meme avec lequel vous etes tous familier. Honnêtement je suis surpris et un peu déçu que personne n'y'ait pensé avant.

Qu'en pensez vous? Personnellement moi je trouve que ça pourrait être mon sosie.😂

Le point de ce long text est de dire que même si ça peut être dur il faut apprendre à rigoler de ses insécurités et ses erreurs sinon on risque d'avoir une vie misérable. C'est pour cela que je crée ce mini concours et même si les prix sont pas super attirants c'est toujours de la monnaie gratuite alors y'a rien à perdre.

Règles

-N'importe qui peut participer
-Pour participer il faut upvoter et resteemer ce post.
-Dans la section des commentaires il faut brièvement parler de l'une de vos insécurités et comment vous vous moquez d'elle pour la rabaisser. Ou vous pouvez parlez de quelque chose de stupide que vous fait une fois qui vous fait sourire quamd vous'y repensez.
-C'est pas nécessaire de mettre des photos mais les images ont tendance à attirer plus d'attentions et vous donneraient plus de chances de gagner.
-Le commentaire avec le plus d'upvotes et réactions gagne et vous pouvez inviter vos amis pour qu'il vienent vous supporter.

Prix

-1ere place: 2.5 SBD
-2eme place: 1.5 SBD
-3eme place: 0.7 SBD

Hmm, currently, my insecurity is that i lisp ie i cant properly pronounce S or C without making a funny face. Especially when i talk to the female folks, it makes me feel insecure. But not to worry, i do get over it since i cant possibly do anything about it now.

I feel what you're brother saying brother, yup we just gotta move n smile it out. Most times its what makes us special. Cheers for the participation :)

trop bien ton projet de concours j’espère que cava fonctionner vraiment .

bon courage up vote resteem mon ami et pour mon histoire c'est trop marrant :

true story lol j'ai un sol qui brille a force de le laver lol et j'ai une amie qui est a la maison et qui me dit mais comment tu fait.

Je lui dit rien, normal quoi produit pour le sol et de l'huile de coude.

La, la conversation s'arrête et deux jour plus tard elle m’appelle en rire et me dit j'étais au magasin le vendeur ma pris pour une conne sa existe pas l'huile de coude.

Non mais la, le fou rire garantie sur le moment enfin voila bref des que je pense a mes sol je pense a elle lol ou inversement.

😂😂 je me vois bien me faire avoir aussi 😂 bien joué :)

I don't know if this is eligible but I'll post about it anyway.

My current 'insecurity' is that I'm being constantly trolled by a knuckle-dragging scumbag on the site named mathiasian. I have a slight worry that he might achieve his life-time ambition by flagging someone to oblivion.

I laugh that he has such an ambition, however.
I find it hilarious that what he is doing is up there with the highlights of his life. For it must be some life he's living! (/irony)

He's flagged half my posts (as I said) but he's hardly breaking my spirit. If anything, I feel I'm growing stronger from it and I think I will still prevail in the end.

People are seeing him for what he is. (He's a nasty little racist with a particular hatred for jews. I have nothing for / against jews - though I don't like their religion, I'm atheist, you see - but someone had to take a stand against him and I guess that someone was me.)

With every action of his, he might get some support from his little community of bottom-feeders but I know the bigger picture is that the other 99.999% will probably find it more than a little distasteful the way he is.

And therefore his brand-growth WILL suffer.

I'm being downvoted and I do have my faults, I accept. But I'm hardly a plagiarist or anything like that. So, I do like to think that even if he ever succeeds in getting my rep below 25 so my posts are hidden, anyone who has dealt with me will still consider hitting that show button. The posts I've written about his scumbag behaviour have still generated a fair few views even whilst hidden. So, with every passing day, he's still being found out more and more.

I also have a fair few transferable skills / attributes: Good English (I taught it once). 50 wpm typing (I think he types by banging his head on his keyboard - lol) Analytical thinking and a great curiosity. I wouldn't take me on if I was as limited as he is, but the boy's got balls, I guess. A peanut for a brain, but he's ballsy.

So the fool is probably hurting himself more than he's hurting me. IMHO.

And for that I'm laughing hard.

I expect this will be flagged soon, but there you go. Either way, great post and whilst I'm fully heterosexual, I can see you're still a good-looking guy and that smile will open doors for you! There are a lot of people a lot worse off than you. Take my troll for instance - please, someone take him! ;) (That's a play on an old gag.)

Great contest idea. :D

Thanks :) I know that now its just kids can be a******** sometimes, I actually like it now its just some effects that linger and I also do know im more blessed than most in my country. As for your situation I think you guys should try and talk it out like maybe on discord or something else otherwise you might make yourselves miss out on some rewards and exposure and you might drag unwitting parties in the process. And as for your eligibility its all about how many positive reactions your comment will get but in the future I wont be tolerating personal, religious or political beefs!!

Lol. I can remove it if you like.

I don't think there's any talking to that kind of person. Do you? The original incident was over a silly meme I posted that he didn't like. I asked why he downvoted it when he could have simply discussed it with me, man-to-man and you know what his response was? He evaded the subject, accused me of over-reacting and then continued downvoting my posts at an even greater rate.

So, he's not a rational kind of person. He's probably uneducated and not very bright. He can't be encouraged and he has to be stood up to. Appeasement doesn't work with his kind. He'll probably learn the hard way in life and his lesson will come. Me, I'm kind of studying him. Thinking deeply on the subject of how to tackle him. In fact, I've learnt so much since I encountered him, I kind of appreciate having found him / been found by him.

He's not good for the site. Or the planet. Do you like racist bullies?

One of my biggest insecurities growing up was always my eyes. I have a slight lazy eye and with having asian genetics, I was envious of those who had big round eyes. When I was in high school, my friends gave me the nickname chinky chai. Being older now I wouldn't really stand for the racist connotation, but when I was younger I would just take it on and laugh at the jokes because it was the only way I could deal with it. One of the biggest things that helped me accept that part of my body was when I started travelling. I spent nearly a year away from home. I found a new level of happiness and confidence and it radiated out. One of the best compliments I use to receive from people I meet on the road was that I would always smile with my whole face. My eyes would get so small but my smile would get so big. I never valued it before but when I found this joy in myself it became something I grew to love.
