Our expert says:
I think I understand this confusing and uncomfortable position you find yourself in. You sound like a good and pleasant person, but with very soluble problems in various areas --- such as how you view life and other pople, your expectations and how you deal with them, how you view yourself, apparently some difficulties in deciding what you really want, and staying with your decision. And maybe so keenly attentive to trying to satisfy everyone else, that you often end up satisfying few or none of them, as well as never satisfying yourself.
But you have already taken the first, and most essential step to putting all this right, because you have recognized the nature and extent of the problems and you have decided to change. QWhat would help most would be a period of counselling, perhaps with a good local psychologist, who practices CBT (COgnitive-Behaviour Therapy ) which is a practical , down-to-earthmethod fo analyzing what changes you need to make in your atitudes, expectations and behaviours, and making those changes effectively.
