i'm comfortable with being the idiot i am
One of the pleasures of getting older is accepting your appearance. I struggled most of my younger years but now that i'm in my forties I realize I'm mostly invisible to the rest of the world anyway. . . and amazingly I always was. As are we all unless we actually do things to bring attention to ourselves.
Yes, I found it a slow process and took time. I wish I had been that smart and insightful as a teen, it took me through my 20's to be comfortable with myself and confident. Good for you. :)
Yes, its an on-going effort.
If that is really you there , what aren't you comfortable with?
Understood. I struggle too. I've improved though. took me to experience some things to gain confidence.
