Our expert says:
Sounds like a lack of self-confidence, possibly related to your earlier experiences of being made to feel bad about yourself, leading to a set of untrue but highly convincing assumptions about yourself and life --- you may tend to assume that you will be judged by others ( when the sadder truth may be that they're actually paying rekmarkably little attention to you ) ; and that if anyone else did "judge" or assess you, they'd have to think little of you ( rather than recognizing that there is much about you that they could admire and enjoy ) ; and that there is something wrong with "yourself" which would lead them to dislike you if they ever saw that terrible "self", rather than realizing that :yourself" is a perfectly nice self, which people could like.
Counselling / psychotherapy, especially of the CBT ( Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy ) model, can be highly effective in helping you to assess and revise such assumptions and to find more fruitful ways of enjoying your interactions with others.
