There are some times when the disparity between who I am and who I possibly could be, or who I want to be, seems so great and depressing that I wonder if I will ever lose this feeling or if it will stay with me for the rest of my life. Is it a matter of learning how to love oneself, or a perfectionistic quality?
Right now I feel this disparity pulling me two ways--down about myself, weakening me and discouraging me, and upwards, pushing me to be better than I am. It's a tough tug-of-war.
I'm unaware of how others might experience, or to what degree they experience it. I have an idea that NFs might feel it greatly, seeing that they are called the Idealists.
How can I become the person I want to be? And is it possible?
