Fear of being misunderstood and ridiculed, not wanting to deal with ignorance.

Nothing, I am the person I’ve always wanted to be. What kept me from it before was worrying about what others thought, I wasted a butt slug of time explaining myself to others when I was younger.

Nothing. I’m being exactly whom I want to be, right now. I haven’t always in the past, that’s for sure.

Only myself on the occasions when I get in my own way, otherwise I’ve managed to carve out a pretty nice life just being me.

The fear of prison. There’s a lot of really bad drivers around here and I’d like to carry a gun when driving.

I think I am more or less the person I want to be. Could stand to lose a few pounds, I suppose.

I’m just lazy.

Fernspider's avatar

I want to be a nicer, more caring, more patient quiet person but those qualities don’t come as naturally to me. I make an effort to be this person but when I am tired or stressed, I become an uber bitch that tells it how it is and can be raw and blunt.

I am not comfortable truely being that person because I don’t like who I am when I am like that and think it is unfair on others.
