    I dislike myself most of the time. Not sure I can give you reasons. But this is how I see myself:

    I generally would like to sleep and day-dream all day, and that is who I picture to be my true-self. There doesn't seem to be much to like there.

    I do most of the other stuff because I need to survive, and I don't like being a burden on others. If it weren't for my need for self-reliance. I really would sleep all day.

    While doing stuff I need to survive, I get bored, and my mind wanders, so thats where I get the motivation to do some other things.

    Every once in a while, I will spot something interesting during these boredom induced endeavours, and find myself actually wanting to do stuff other than sleep. These things tend to be way beyond my cabablities and this compels me to attempt to acquire abilities to do these things. Unfortunately, these attempts take resources that could be used for survival, leading to more need for activities to keep myself self-reliant.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    I'm going to say for the first time in my life that I love myself.

    I'm not perfect, I still have issues and things I wish were different about me, that I was better at some things; but I will honestly say now that I do not wish I was anyone else personality-wise, and I can take real pride in the things I've done or tried to do in my life.

    (I used to loathe myself, though. So that is a big change.)

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    I love myself. This doesn't mean that I think I'm perfect. I'm into personal growth and I enjoy the journey quite a bit. I'm happy with who I am now and I'm excited that I'm the kind of person who will become who I want to be in the future.

    I'm cool. Would be cooler if I was less gassy and/or anxious, but I'm workin' on it.

    Sounds like IBS. Are you anxious because of the gas issue? Anyway, here are some tips.

    Gas may cause cramping and bloating. To prevent it, try these tips.
    Avoid carbonated beverages, chewing gum, highly spiced foods, and too many sweets.
    Don't skip meals.
    Don't talk and chew at the same time. This causes you to swallow air, which may cause gas.
    Eat only peeled, cooked fruits and vegetables that don't have seeds. Strain the seeds out of tomatoes.
    Avoid beans, corn (including popcorn), and nuts. Vegetables in the cabbage and onion families including broccoli and garlic may also cause problems.

    I'm at the edge of a swimming pool. I'm in the water and I am trying to climb out. But the side of the pool is slippery and I can't quite pull myself out.

    I'm quite comfortable in the pool and if I swim down to the other end, I can climb up the steps.

    So I like being out of the pool and I like being in the pool. So wonder, why am I stuck at the slippery end?

    Indeed, MBTI is my own special bathtub. It is warm and supportive and I have the company of all and each of you as I scrabble on the slippery edge.

    Especially ThatGirl, who keeps on handing me the soap with a giggle.

    But I notice I just keep getting slippery.

    Will I ever get out of the bathtub?

    An open mind is indeed a good thing, but if it be too open and there's no judgment going on that's not a good situation either because there just isn't any grounding to support the person. There always needs to be balance.

    to answer the origional topic and throw the conversation off topic by doing so (I do that in real life too)

    I like me

    Do I have faults? Yes, but I forgive me for them
