Nothing is ever good enough! - January 20th 2011, 07:24 PM

Why do I always feel like nothing is ever good enough and always strive for something better than I have. This is most evident in my dating world where I have this guy who really likes me and cares about me and I feel the same way but Im just not sure if its the real deal or if i just like the attention. I would be sick without him around but when I initially met him I never saw anything romantic happening between us. He is such a good guy i dont want to lose him because in this day of age I know they are hard to come by. But i am very picky and want the perfect guy in every way and its driving me crazy because I cant figure out how I truley feel. What should I do?

Not being able to figure out how I truly feel is a ginormous problem for me as well! In all honesty, I've just learned to deal and cope with it. Sometimes, you really do just have to take that leap of faith. Silence that screaming voice in the back of your head saying "This isn't good enough".

You say that you would be sick without him. Obviously, there's something good about him, something very good about him. He makes you happy. That's what matters. Not the fact that a hypothetical better guy may or may not exist.

Try to focus on the positive realities, instead of the negative realities and the what-ifs. I know this is easier said than done, but it's a process -- you need to begin to see the results!

Good luck.

"Want to know a secret?

You are beautiful.

Black, white, gay, straight, bisexual. Whether you are smart or quiet or impossibly in love with your best friend, someone out there cherishes your smile and gets butterflies when you walk into a room.

Someone out there can't stop thinking about you. You Are Beautiful. Don't ever believe differently."
