I will never be the person i want to be

Some thing happened a while back. i took and have been processing it and come to a conclusion. I will never be the person i want to be. Mind you its not a bad thing that i will not be that person. I will have to be the best me i can be. (working on this) I can't change my self in certain ways and i really should not even try to do so. To do so would unbalance the work i have done so far with my going forward. So be your self. A interesting concept.....

This rather mirrors a conversation I had on the phone with a St. Louis fan friend today. She's lost a lot of weight and done a lot of personal emotional work, but she's not the person she wants to be yet, and has resigned herself to the probability that she never will be.

But that doesn't make her a failure or a bad person. I'm not the person I want to be, either. We're all works in progress, and the work isn't done until you're dead.

We love you fine the way you are, Jimmy.

My reasons for wanting to be the other person mainly because it would mean i would be more confident. This is some thing i am working on still, just now i am going at it in a different direction. Thankfully i know that it does not make me a failure. This is some thing that took me some time to realize but i have finally come to that conclusion. (took 5 or 4 years of therapy but hey it did finally come out)

Thanks for the kind words Robin, they do help...

An echo of what Robin said. None of us are the people we want to be, nor likely ever will be. We keep trying anyway.
