Default Are you comfortable with who you are?

I came to a realization very recently (it only took 40 frickin' years..) that at this moment in time I am exactly the person I want to be.

This is incredibly empowering, and I'd like to know if anyone else has experienced this feeling and what it has allowed you to do.

Both of the above. I'm comfortable with who I am, but I don't want to stay the way I am either. I never want to stay the same. Or to put it another way, I'm pretty happy with who I am, warts and all--but this does not mean that I'm not working on the warts.

I'm comfortable with parts of myself, but I'm a work in progress. There are still things I feel like I'm missing, and things I want to change about myself. I'm young still though - I think it's normal to feel this way at my age. I'm still just trying to figure everything out. :]

I mostly like who I am. I wish I was more assertive and confrontational....I'm shy and passive usually....at least at home in the UK. I am more myself when I get to the states. I want to get to a point where I am true to myself no matter where my feet may land. But all in all I like where my life is and I like where it is headed.

I've made really solid strides into my own self-acceptance and I like who I am. Are there still things I can work on? Of course. The day you stop learning and evolving is the day you die.

Ditto....but replace "Bexy" with my name lol. I've been through hell, in the past and more recently, had some who tried to change me and wouldn't accept me for who and what I am. And foolishly, I tried to change for them. But, in more recent times I've come to the realization that I am ME, I am unique, my personality isn't "flawed", it's just different. I've thankfully found some kindred spirits, so I'm not so alone anymore and am more comfy being me.

Default Well

I really truly like who I am and enjoy the person I have become. I can't fully look in the mirror and say I love what and who I see looking back at me 100% of the time,but damn a good portion of the time I really am pleased. Pleased because I was able to step away from the doormat I used to be, up to being just a people pleaser to stepping out and going after what I want and saying what I think consequences be dammned. Pleased because I love what I do, am well loved by friends and family, and am starting to care less and less what others that don't mean anything to me have to say. Happy with seeing the survivor in the mirror who got through many difficulties in life, learned from them and moved on and that allows me to assist others to get through theirs.

Do I still have work to do? Of course. I will work on myself till the day I die, because as human beings we are always evolving and changing and that's life.

I'd have to echo what a few others have said. I'm pretty comfortable with who I am as a person, but there's always something to work on. I'll tell you, though, learning to accept and be happy with myself has made a big difference in all the little things.

i'm comfortable with who i am. There aren't things i feel need to change, just certain things i need to accept. i hope that makes sense.

Of course, i can always strive to be better at the things that make me awesome

I'm fairly comfortable with who I am now. When I look back at who I was I'm kinda shocked. To say I was negative is an understatement, so I've come a long way. There are a few things I would change, and I'm glad to say my size isn't one of them.

I voted no- but it is because I'm taking myself as a whole into consideration. On my body... I'm not 100% happy, but I'm not in hate mode or anything like that like I use to be. On my over all life- I just see that I'm working towards a goal, always.
