Hello wonderful people! Things have really begun to change for me, but one thing still remains the same. I'm still struggling to "be myself" around new people. I know this is because I spent so much time transforming myself into what I thought others would accept or like, but now that I'm starting a new phase of my life I want to learn how to be truly comfortable in my own skin.
What are some things that really help YOU to be yourself and be comfortable with where you are until you get to where you want to be? Thanks in advance for your input
Hi wingz. glad youre doing well. It seems recovery and the promises really hold up. I am still trying to figure out who the real me is. But the more I recover the more I realize that I care less and less about making people like me. Its like it has become less of a priority.
Hope this helps.

what i try now and it really helps me is to simply feel what i feel, it takes me away from my mental for ex: i was with a person in a park one day and i stopped talking and checked my sensations : the scenery was nice, it was sunny, he and I talking on a spiritual level great! Well not at all i felt tense, neglected and lonely! what a Gap!! i was shocked and in fact the conversation was all about him, it was not obvious at first but i was just a mirror to his narcissism, I learnt so much on that day!!!! After a while i said goodbye and left, he was a very handsome man and sexy and spiritually awakened so i thought no in fact he was using me to fill his narcisstic ego
since then i use this a lot, feel what i feel because it does not lie to me, this tension in my belly, this feeling of asphyxia, or plain happiness and freedom with a person
My faith in God is what helping me the most. Knowing that there's proper time for every matter and that the best is yet to come. Meanwhile I'm enjoying the process. I like it that I'm being transformed. I appreciate every step of the way. I learned to be GRATEFUL that's the key! : )
