When you look at your past self what do you think?

I think I used to give importance to things and people I don't care much about now, which is better in that sense...
I think I'm a much stronger person. Even though I still have tendency of being too nice I suppose and giving people more than I should. I'm not a doormat. I now will speak up and fight if that is what I need to do

@Bexsy I have grown in the same ways. Always a pleaser. But we get used.

I was kind and stronger, I was passionate about many things, genuinely cared about people etc : p

I was cruel for a time. Then, when the cruelty stopped, I became apathetic, reckless, and undisciplined.

There is a fair amount of shame wrapped up in my past, not gonna lie. But i try to keep it in perspective; I was a child for most of that, and for the little bit of it that i was an adult i was just barely one.

Not to say that I have all the answers and everything figured out now, but I have come so so far and I'm still pretty young. I may have started at a low point but progress has been upward since and mostly linear.

If the trend continues I could, at least theoretically, reach some pretty dizzying heights.

I see someone who to took a different path but came out right where she belongs. , So I think... Good Job self.
Typically, I think about how much I've improved & how much my thinking has changed. I used to not give a shit about anything & threw life away. Now I just want better for myself & for the future family I want someday

@ChiefWalksWith40oz real talk man, I hope you go far in life. You can help out alot of people
@tacobell thanks man. I think you can too actually. You're smart. For some reason people never expect a funny mf to not be dumb 🤷

Can’t help but attribute happier, less complicated times with her, so I do find myself missing her to some degree because of that alone. But man, was my past self determined to put up with a lot of shit I honestly shouldn’t have even given my time and energy to. It is what it is, but was such a waste of so many precious minutes of my life thanks to my flawed ways of existing back then. It made me tweak the hell out of what I give my energy to these days though. That needed to be corrected in the worst way.
That I haven't changed all that much.
@Gaiia Complete opposite. I'm very neurotic, easily annoyed and get furious over absurd things like smells or sounds. It's more problematic around people who are close to me though.

@CrazyMusicLover I have gotten quite upset with loud music of neighbors when it's night hehe 😁 so annoying
@Gaiia I hate when they smoke cigarettes and it somehow gets to our apartment in winter. It's not normal smoke it's a disgusting thick smell of tobacco mixed with dirt scraped off the train station floor or something. It's those moments when I want to chill at a place where I feel comfortable and safe and suddenly it's all permeated with this disgusting crap that get me the maddest.

He had a better weight, but I'm trying to go there again 😬

Eh, he's alright but I wouldn't mind nudging him a bit now and then. I've frequently been close to goals but rarely accomplished them.
I gave more importance to evil people that didn’t deserve that. My past was very chaotic and miserable. I try not to remember.

I’m glad that in a comfortable place in my life where I no longer worry or care about what people think of me.
PaleandPolluted · 36-40, F
I think about the people i had a crush on i can honestly say im above most of them.
Emarkx · 26-30, M
Hmmm. Impulse is something else
Gaiia · F
@Emarkx what do you mean
Emarkx · 26-30, M
@Gaiia people normally give importance to things that they shouldnt have because of emotion and caring. An impulse of having too much care
Nevaeh0081 · 36-40, F
I've grown,so that's good.

But,I wish that I accomplished more.
PoeticPlay · 51-55, M
I am amazed that I have made it to today.
I think my best self is well behind me.

My past self was happier
Michmich · 36-40, F
That I’ve come a long way from being a very shy and easily overwhelmed girl into a strong and independent woman. And that the hardship on the way was worth it, even if I still feel bad about some things.
tacobell · 26-30, M
I came along way and I'm really blessed to had people that actually gave a fuck about me in my life. They saw things in me, I didn't see because I wanted to see the world burn
