DEAR DEIDRE: WHY does everyone pick on me, just because I’m shy?

I hate the expression “It’s always the quiet ones” as people think it means if you’re not outgoing, you’re strange.

I’m a 16-year-old boy, and at school, the loud, horrible bullies are popular. They tease me and call me a weirdo.

Even the teachers treat me like I’m an idiot.

I can’t help being shy and I’m a nice person. So why does everyone look down on me?

DEIDRE SAYS: Not everybody thinks all shy people are weird.

It does seem like your self-esteem is very low.

Working on this will really help you to feel better about yourself, care less what others think, and be more confident.
