Over the years, I always thought it was perfectly fine to have a rolemodel. I took this much too far. I tried to be like so many people that I've forgotten who I actually am. I'm tired of trying to be someone I'm definitely not, but how can I be myself If I don't even know who that is anymore? As if this isn't enough, I've done countless very terrible things that I can't seem to forgive myself for. Someone please help! confused

Hi Bit,
 
welcome to the HealingWell depression forum.  I am glad that you have joined us.
 
The best way to get to know yourself is to just be you.  When a situation arises, think about how you feel about it and react with how you feel.  For example, if somebody asks you would you like coffee, or pop.  Think about what you would like and ask for that.  Treat every situation that way.  You might change your mind along the way.  That is okay.  You get to know yourself as you grow older.  You become you along the way.  It isn't a big deal to not know the real you yet, it comes with time and age.  Just enjoy life each day.  Learn to forgive yourself for the things that you have done in the past.  Think of them as learning experiences.  Live and learn.
 
Hugs, Karen
