people always stare and laugh at me?

User Profile
When I walk people always stare and laugh @ me. Especially boys. Sometimes I wonder whether it's something written on my face that encourages that reaction from them... Everywhere I go on campus people are watching me... funny... I'm all alone. Why do they do that!

Welcome to ehealthforum,
Consider evaluating your walking posture and the carriage in a mirror. You can also consider visiting your doctor for further assistance to see if there are any postural abnormalities. Maintain correct posture or opt for posture training. Boys in your age can be irritating, try to ignore them and look at your positives and build your self esteem. You can also consider going ahead with counseling sessions to help you cope up with your feelings (if needed). All the best.
Take care.
