I have a speech problem that I have been struggling with since my childhood and because of it I feel very bad about myself. I feel inferior to everyone else and sometimes I just cry myself to sleep. I love being around people but sometimes people laugh at me or make fun of me when I talk. It is very hurtful and people don't understand. I try to be thankful for the many blessings that Christ has given but deep inside of me I feel very hurt and sometimes I just hate myself. I just wish people accepted me the way I am. I urge everyone to please treat people around you nicely even if they are a bit different from you, because that person who is laughed at or made fun of may be suffering a lot from the inside. I just really want to have fellowship with people at church but my fear of being made fun of or rejected tends to make me afraid to talk to people.
Please keep me in you prayers and any words of advice would be greatly appreciated!
