    • Then don’t. Make a change gradually. I don’t think anyone can change the core of who they are. I openly admit to not being this gentle, sweet soul. I say what I mean, I mean what I say, and I try very hard to fight fair. I’m not perfect, but I’m always supremely direct. People will rarely, if ever, admit to me that it bothers them or makes them uncomfortable, and when they do, it’s always from a place of “You were mean to me.”, as opposed to realizing and remembering that I’m just honest. I don’t carry around confectioner’s sugar to make everyone feel better about themselves. I come from a good place, a knowledgeable place, but if people ignore that and take it the wrong way, I don’t feel like that’s my issue.
      Sometimes people prefer to journal their emotions before becoming openly communicative about it. Ultimately, just do whatever feels right for you, and don’t worry about other people’s issues.

    • Fear is the ultimate catalyst in holding you back. At the core of who we are, we all have our own issues, whatever they may be. I know it’s difficult to change core aspects of ourselves. I’m a pretty fearless individual, but there’s a quiet, shy, introverted aspect to me as well. My question always is: What is the fear keeping you from doing? How intense is the fear? Is it fear of the unknown? Is it fear of failure? Or is it fear of truly allowing yourself to live?

      • We all live with a few regrets, and some of us live with many. I have a few, but they’re all things I will never be able to change because they are deeply imbedded in the past and revolve around people who are, sadly, no longer alive.
        I’m generally very careful with my words and how I treat people, and in doing so, I am able to live relatively regret free. That doesn’t mean I don’t make mistakes, I know I do, but the key is not to dwell on anything. There’s no such thing as perfection, so try to sit down and make a list of things you want to change or want to accomplish. Take baby steps. Don’t limit yourself.
