Do Tell: What Would You Change?

In my book, one thing that constitutes an emotionally healthy person is expecting that you're an imperfect being and always leaving room for improvement. The ways to better yourself as a person are endless: you can work on accepting yourself more, forgiving others more easily, or becoming more assertive. This, of course, doesn't mean that you shouldn't love who you are as is, it just means that you're a work in progress, which is a good thing.

Obviously these kind of changes don't happen over night; in fact, they can take years and a lot of determination, which is what makes the change that much more significant. But let's face it, wouldn't it be wonderful to just flip a switch and have a complete change take place? If you could change one thing about yourself instantaneously, do tell, what would it be?

I like myself as a person. Im happy with my looks and the way my body looks. One thing that I want to change asap is my health. Im suffering from Endometriosis. Im going the alternative route- homeopathy and some other things so I know that I will be cured. But i just cant wait anymore. I know it will resolve all my problems. I had to even leave my job so Im hoping to get back to work in few months. One more thing that I would like to change is my confidence level. I hate speaking in front of a crowd...thats important for me coz Im doing an MBA...I just feel so vulnerable. I was very shy initially so I think I've come a long way from that. And the fact that I over-analyze things...I just think too much. This was an awfully long post. Maybe I should also aim for shorter posts in the future

my cognitive patterns... I hate the way my mind works, after having suffered from an ED there's like a permanent brain damage or something, it feels like you never really return to normal.

I have the worst anger problem. I become irrational, uncontrollable and LOUD when I get upset, which is fairly often. I usually get annoyed and stressed easily, and it really hurts the people around me.

Hmm. I'll just say the first thing that came to mind. I wish I could be one of those blessed women where the fat just goes right to their breasts and NOWHERE else. ;-) They exist, and I'm astounded every time.

i would like to be less anxious, especially about my children. there's a saying that is something like "once bad luck finds you it remembers where you live" and i sort of always have that in the back of my mind (and not too far back). we've had more than our share of misfortune with our kids and i worry, worry, worry that there will be more.

My self-esteem. I have none. It's sad really and I've been trying to improve it for years. That would be what I would change...

I would love to be more confident and have a higher self esteem. Also it would be great to be more spontaneous and be comfortable with decision-making.

I think that overall, I'm content with myself, but the past few months has brought a change on me. That's what I want to change. Oh my thing that I would LOVE the change bout myself is my worry bout perfection! I care too much bout what others would think. I try not to mind it, but I fail at that.

Longer attention span would be nice. Also, I have a very Jekyll/Hyde type personality where I can be incredibly self conscious and shy, or extremely social and bold. No middle ground. I trying to keep myself in the middle and be more composed and calmer. Hm.

I truly wish I could change my shady past...but I cant do that, so I wish I could be more forgiving. not just to myself, but to anyone.
