Did you ever find yourself?

I don't think I'll ever find myself. For everything I accept about myself, I discover two more bad things that I find that I must work on. It's endless.

I feel like I have always find myself wearing a mask of someone else. When I see someone I wish to be. I sink myself into that person's shoes. My voice pitch changes, the regular decisions I make is completely different, my perspective changes, my appearance, choice of music, my mood, even my dreams change.

How I would proceed to change: I would usually find something on t.v. and say to myself, "I want to be her, wife material and yet childish. Mature when needed". A couple days I would imagine a life story for the character I am changing to, last day is for my change of appearance.

I only do this alone, but when my family is around. I don't speak a word, I have no idea why. It is not just my family that describes me quiet, it is my classmates and friends. I'd get into random conversations from time to time when I suddenly become outgoing.




Since I don't know myself, how am I supposed to find it?

This is more advice about the things you find rather then finding yourself but hopefully it will be helpful to some one anyways.

I've always been prideful (stemming from my IQ of 159 and floating along with ease) with a mean-streak a mile long, but what it took me a while to realize was that my true self was a prideful arrogant jerk and I'm still a prideful jerk, but in a different sense in that I learned to keep my temper under control and channeled my jerkyness in to a more sarcastic and joking manor and my pride into a more healthy "I know what I'm good at and I take pride in it" sense and have generally turned learned to accept and use my worse aspects in harmless or even good ways.

So moral of the story accept who you are if you don't like it or its harmful learn how to use those aspects in harmless or good way.

Oh did I ever, it resulted me undergoing a change I didn't expect, but all for the better. Like immitis stated above, it comes down to accepting yourself for who you are, accepting your strengths but also your weaknesses... discovering things you never considered..these things become your foundations and usually allow you to exceed and embrace a healthy confidence.

Well I don't even know who or what exactly is "myself" so I'm pretty much sure that'll be a lifelong journey of discovery. All I know is that of "being true to myself". I really try (especially recently) to just let myself be...me. I am voicing out my opinions, and I think that sometimes it may be on the border of decency and appropriacy, but I guess for now I'm just testing the waters and trying to be true to my own opinions (true to myself?). But it's not easy, because I'm now seeing parts of myself that I did not until recently, and I'm not pretty sure I like those parts. And being true to myself is not as easy as I previously thought as well...

I think its perfectly normal to do that. I think it means you're self conscious enough to realize the good and bad things of yourself so you'd rather see yourself in a different light.

I don't know in what context you mean by "found" yourself, but I've noticed that you do a lot of changing after high school and especially when you meet people of all diversities and ethnicity, because imo, it opens your views up a lot
