Chasing The Perfect Me

It's silly but I've never been fully satisfied with myself. From the outside I may appear very well put together, but it's contrary to how I feel on the inside. Naturally I am quiet, introverted and don't have a lot on my mind so I want to have a stronger personality. I want to converse in long conversations with other people without feeling strained or uncomfortable. I want to be smarter and act smarter. I need to have more street smarts and be less gullable. I want to have more faith and be more positive and confident. Others see me as a really happy person, but I often focus only on my faults instead of my talents. But now by trying to better myself everyday, I feel more hopeful of who I can be in the not too distant future.

When you figure out how to do that, let me know.

Good for you! I am often in the same boat, so I know where you are coming from. I'm glad that you chose "not so distant future" as part of your statement because it shows that you are already working towards a more positive you.<br />

First, never apologize for being yourself. Who you are is who you are and you have every right to exist on this planet and reap the benefits of life. Don't beat yourself up about your faults.
