Default Do you hate your personality?

That's where I am right now. I despise the fact that I rarely have anything interesting or funny to say. Especially the part about having something humorous to say. Humor, to me, is a big part of communication.

It's like I've lost the feel of what is actually funny and what isn't. And the thing that kills me is that I wasn't always this way. In the past I was described as fairly funny and outgoing. I don't know what I need to do to improve this. Any ideas?

And I used to be very funny and outgoing, just a few years ago. Now I'm.... I don't even know :|

Sometimes my friend bring this up and ask why and I just shrug
Yeah....it's tough. I'm so tired of struggling with this.

When I feel like this.....I try to remind myself to stay motivated and to keep trying. I hope the same works for you.

There are parts of my personality which I dislike, all the blech bits like the arrogance, impatience, and selfishness, but the rest of my personality I like a lot. I'm not really good at making people laugh but so long as I'm not offending someone when I'm talking to them, I don't see any reason to complain about it.

I don't like everything like I hate being shy or selfish or self-center ( not all the time). I also hate the fact that I can be my biggest contradiction but in general I love myself

I don't *hate* my personality as such. I often don't like the way I first react to things though: like even though I consider myself "cured" of SA, when I go into a room filled with people my first thoughts are to turn and run, even if this is just for half a second before I get a grip on it; it never goes away completely. It's the same for other thoughts, the first thing that usually enters my mind is the most negative until I stop and think. This I don't like but the question is - which part is the "true" me? The initial reaction or the part that over-rides it and says "hey, lets not think like that"? So I believe that even if you do hate your personality the answer is (relatively) simple: change it. Just remember; there's good in all of us

i don't hate my personality as such, but I do hate the way I feel about myself and my illnesses. They are very difficult to deal with, and are ruining my life as a whole.

I'm not really sure what my personality is, because I've been so quiet for all of my life. But I still don't hate it, even being the way that it is. I do wish I was able to be more open & talkative & communicative with people, but I'm not. There's nothing I can do about that. I don't like saying there's anything I "hate" about myself, especially not a part of me as big as my personality. The only thing about me I can actually say that I hate is my temper.

Yeah I'm not really sure what my personality is either anymore. It's too exhausting to think about it sometimes.

Actually... I really like my personality. But like you... I may have gotten a bit rusty. Here's an idea: you have to start hanging out with people some more (I really hate these words). Talking to other people, or at least listening to conversations can and will make you better at communication. You can learn from the others. Once you find out what makes a person laugh you won't need to put much effort in it, if any at all. I know this is a hell of a lot easier said than done but that's what you'll have to do. There's no taking shortcuts here. This may be just a theory of mine, but it's a start.

Can't we just listen to mp3/audio of people making conversations without hanging out with them

Default Re: Do you hate your personality?

i seem to always feel that i'm outside my comfort zone, so its difficult for me to show my sense of humour and personality ...one thing i dislike is that i get too nervous and so i may come off as too serious, i can laugh alot but actually being funny and chirpy is rare for me unless i had a glass of beer, just to take the edge off or unless i was around a friend i knew well.
