Are you comfortable in your skin or do you wish to be someone else?
I'm mostly comfortable in my skin, but occasionally I think that I'd like to be RoboCop so I can dispense some much needed cyborg justice around my neighborhood.
I think we all have days where we'd like to change things about ourselves, but as a whole I am very comfortable with who I am. It took awhile, it wasn't until I was in my 30's that I really felt "good" being me and really valued myself as is the majority of the time.
I think a lot of our formative years and even into young adulthood is when people struggle the most with self-doubt and wanting to be like others. At least that's the case for many people I know.
Some days, no. But, I would rather be myself than anyone else.
I feel comfortable with myself, but every now and then I have a rough day where I wish I could switch with someone else. I am sure everyone has those days when someone else's life looks easier or better. Luckily it doesn't happen often, for the most part I am happy with who I am
I'm very comfortable in my own skin but I have spent most of my life anxious and fidgety. It's good to get rid of that... and know you are the best you can do, doing the best you can at any given moment. Although I am comfortable today that's not to say I wouldn't switch with someone for a day just to satiate curiosity... who knows what you'd learn doing that!
Extremely comfortable! It appears I haven't felt this comfortable since ever and I notice it all has to do with aging.
I'll be turning 40 this year and I haven't felt this good or been this fit. Even though I am Bipolar, take heavy medication and have had my share of pain, being someone else is the last thing I'd want.
I've reached that phase of peacefulness, mindfully enjoying each and every day:-)
I am happy with me and I wouldn't want to swap to be anyone else.
I have my moments like everyone else when I would like everything to be easier, but then I suppose I wouldn't evolve or appreciate anything.
I am comfortable in my own skin and I am just glad I have got to the point of feeling like that, the younger years are always more angst and doubt filled as you try to work everything out.
Any attempt to be someone else is an exercise in futility. Anyone who attempts to do that does not even deserve to live!
I'm definitely comfortable in my own skin. I had to grow up young, and I suffered with major illnesses in my mid-20s. I think I became more comfortable in my own skin in my late 20s, as I was completely content with life... had a wonderful husband and beautiful children. That's all I ever wanted growing up --> a beautiful family. I'm thankful I have it. Now that my kids are grown and my character of being a young mommy is gone, I would not change anything. I look forward to all that life has to offer.
Seems like you figured it out a little earlier than the rest of us, good job.
Gaplumber, you are right. I think I figured that out when I was like 48 and I decided to get out of the rat race and retire. Haven't regretted my decision so far. Being building websites and now hubs, LOL.
