yeah and impossible...living up to other people's expectations isn what I think is wrong...we should only live for ourselves but so many other people push and pull us and try to tell us how to live our lives and what is best for us. I believe only you know what is best for you ultimately....not to say that people don't make plenty of terrible mistakes all the time based on their own faulty judgment. But mistakes are important and can help someone learn. I just think that some people grow to rely on others for their decision making and distrust their own ability to make decisions. I feel that is not the way to live life.

It seems that you are much more likely to successfully be yourself than trying to pull off being someone else.

yeah I'm the same way...I think it is somewhat important to care what others think about you b/c that reflects how you act towards others. I guess I'm just against catering to others needs and changing my behavior just to suit someone else. I think being yourself is important.
