I consider myself curious, insightful, observant, introspective, high on empathy, personable, creative, often meticulous, bad at designing organizational systems but good at following protocols that are already in place, conscientious, prone to procrastinating, often avoidant, patient, prone to anxiety, thoughtful, a strong writer, fiercely loyal, somewhat wry and sardonic.

I wish I were better at managing stress, I wish I were more forgiving, I wish I were more assertive (though that's gotten exponentially better over the years), and less avoidant, more athletic and coordinated.

My primary characteristic is that I am a non-confrontational people-pleaser. Unlike some people pleasers, it is not out of fear. I genuinely want people to be happy.

I have always wished that I could be grateful for my many blessings but I am always unhappy and want more.

Yep, my people-pleasing behavior has never been a fear-based thing. It's just a way of relating to others and showing that I care and am conscientious. I've generally found it to be a pretty beneficial trait, as long as it doesn't turn into becoming a doormat with no boundaries, and as long as one doesn't get all their self worth from being seen as the "can-do" person by others.
