I’ve always thought of myself as an optimist.
The future will be better.
That keeps me going.
When I think about myself I focus on the negative, though.
I have a lot of good qualities. I hesitate to share those. I feel like I’m bragging.
I don’t think I should ignore my negative aspects. Those need work.
Maybe the trick is to focus on the changes I want to make.
I try not to. But I do.
I worry if I write too many good things about myself people will think I’m bragging. That I’m full of myself. Maybe that’s why I write so many negative things about myself.
There are a lot of things I do that I don’t want to do. Mostly those are things other people want me to do.
I’m a people-pleaser. I want people to like me. To love me.
That’s not such a bad thing by itself.
I do things that make me unhappy to make other people happy. That’s when it becomes a problem.
When I become a doormat.
