Sense of self...

So I've been psychotic in the past and perhaps it's a personality disorder thing (which i don't have diagnosed), but i don't have a sense of self. I never had and i was never abused as a child. My childhood was fairly normal and happy.

I'm intelligent, creative, passionate type of a person. I've seen, read and heard so much... Yet there never was me. I emphatize a lot but then i found myself thinking as a narcissist. I do something and think another.

In the past i built my identity. I created a perfect version of myself. After many years and quiting that, i still don't know who i am...if anyone has a similar problem or a solution, be my guest!

Hi,
I think this is a quest for life, however says they know who they are, they are basically lying to themselves, it’s all about self-esteem. Work on that maybe.
