A couple of weeks ago Hazel wrote about a theory by Carl Rogers that everyone had an ideal self and a real self. She then wrote about her own self and real self and her post was really honest and inspiring. So, I have chose to post about my real and ideal self.
I believe that everyone has that part of them that wants to be different from what they actually are and it's the same for me. My ideal self would be pounds and pounds lighter than what I actually weigh, I would be two inches taller and I would be more confident. However, my real self is heavier in weight than I want to be to look and feel good, is quite small in height and is more self conscious than I should be in groups of people.
The thing is though not all of the ideal self that I want to be would really reflect who I honestly am.
