The Shy Girl

There's that girl again.
She's about five foot three, pretty skinny, and very quiet.
She has these beautiful brown eyes, which she thinks is her most beautiful feature, although she wishes they were blue, like her mother's.
She barely ever speaks up in class. It's hard for her to speak to her classmates, thinking that in some way, they'll judge her. So she stays quiet.
She loves her friends, but sometimes she doesn't like to hear them mocking her for what she believes in. She gets tired of listening to them saying those things to her face.
She knows people like her, but still feels as if they judge her and talk about her behind her back. She's very insecure.
She thinks very badly of herself, and even calls herself terrible things. She doesn't hate herself, she just has very low self-esteem.
Wait a minute. I know this girl.
It's me.
