What Would You Change About You?

I'd change...

My HORRIBLE temper
My fear of intimacy
My inability to fully trust anyone

My Negativity about everything in my life.

How I overly worry too much about something to the point that it messes me up mentally

Just how I keep holding on to certain things from the past and can't or don't want to let them go. I just want to move on.

I'm too hard on myself. I wish I wasn't!

I'd say what I would change, were it not for my inability to trust anyone. Nah, seriously, the following would change:

1. My suspicion
2. (linked to 1. - my shyness)
3. My rage
4. My depression
5. My inferiority complex
6. My ego
7. My short attention span
8. My addictive personality (hey, I come here everyday)

Damn, that basically just leaves my nice haircut...

Physical aspects: my metabolic rate, so I can be one of those lucky bastards who can eat brownies and ice-cream and not put on any weight,

Character aspects:

- My instinct to shrink away from people before they can get too close
- I get upset and tearful too easily
- I take rejection and disappointments too close to the heart
- I wish I could "read" people better
- My occasional patches of apathy and listlessness

My tendency to over-critique myself to the point that I lose sight of the good in a situation.

I'm too non-confrontational. I keep things quiet too often rather than bring them out in the open. And since I can't get anything resolved if it's all bottled up inside, that leads to my...

...tendency to think too much/over-analyze. Especially if there's something going on in my life that's causing some stress or anxiety, I think so much about it that I can go from being fairly level headed to a paranoid wreck and back again in a relatively short time.

I think I appear too selfless for my own good sometimes. I do want the people I love and care about to be happy, but sometimes (too often at the sake of my happiness) - I often don't voice strong feelings about my happiness. Why? Who knows...maybe some perverted notion of nobility. But I think it makes me appear too willing to accept bad news and keep going on gracefully. I may be a "nice guy," but sometimes it's too much to keep rolling with the punches. Sometimes I want to put up a passionate fight.

And I definitely need to change my sense of timing (re: relationships), or lack thereof. It's something that's been a thorn in my side for ages and I still can't seem to get it right.

Despite all that, I'm pretty comfortable with who I am, overall. There are definitely some things I'd like to change, some minor and some very major, but there are a lot of things about me I like and hope will never change. Sometimes it's just as hard to not change as it is to change...

*Poor concentration..ooh i thought of an idea for a poem, i wonder what colour top would look good with my new jeans, damn i need a facial, see what i mean?
*Disorganised
*messy
* MAJOR fear of rejection which in turn stops me from following my dreams and allowing myself to get close to people, which in turn ruins most rships and friendships I have.
* Terrible temper where i do a lot of yelling, things may get thrown and doors may be slammed all within the space of 30.25 seconds.
* Terrified of changing my life to make it better, which relaly comes down to the fear of rejection thing again.

*I whinge a lot apparently
*Im a sap
* Hold onto the past for too long

Please take this in the spirit that it's offered, which is as an honest observation:

I am intrigued about how often on an Internet forum, people note depression and/or shyness as character traits. Is it because on the net we can admit to these things (and God knows I'm all of these things), or is it that the Internet is an attractive release valve for this type of person? I've often wondered.

Yeah, you're probably right. It is an outlet for me, anyway. And we do live in the age of depression.

- My crappy skin
- My shyness
- The intense suspicion I feel towards most people who say they think I'm good looking.
- My fear of rejection
- My inability to manage relationships with women that well. The fact I've had almost nothing but utter heartbreak clouds my judgement sometimes. (No, I don't cheat, but I always make bad decsions regarding relationships in general)
- My endless procrastination
- My inability to get a job, despite experience and references
- My bitter cynicsm
- My chronic health problems
