It takes guts to be able to admit your faults to yourself.  It takes more guts to be able to admit your faults to someone else.  However, I believe the end results of such realisations and admittances tend to be healthy for the way you view yourself and for your overall state of being.  While I don't believe this is as effective as admitting your faults to the people you love most, people tend to prefer a certain amount of anonymity.  Veritas just so happens to have a good amount of that mental shield, and so I propose the following.

I am a habitual liar.

What I've just done is told you something that I probably couldn't say to my closest friends or relatives, due to the fear of being mistrusted.  I've probably just lost a little trust amongst you members of Veritas as well.  But, admittance is the first step to recovery...and it just makes me feel better admitting it.

I am encouraging you to publicly admit a fault of yours that you would normally not tell a soul, without fear of immature responces. (because none of you will write an immature responce, will you.)

It is for the general health of not only you, but for the community.

I tend to exaggerate way too much and tend to regret the past more than most.  Like I literally beat myself in the head about the past.

As much confidence as I have in my abilities I'm scared that if push-comes-to-shove, I won't act in the right way, or worse, I won't act at all, probably due to my fear of failure.

I can be a huge jackass, and there are times when my anger is ridiculous. I'm also manipulative and enjoy playing politics though I'll complain about it.
I do little to change the above and just avoid situations that bring that side of me into the open.

Would it surprise you to learn I taste like strawberries?

I have really bad self-confidence issues, and often doubt myself whatever I do. I also have anger issues, and fly off the handle pretty easy.
<@kobok> And if you push hard enough, you can shove quite a lot into a chicken.

<@Trowa> When someone told him to jump off a cliff, he argued the semantic meanings of "jump" and "cliff", and then proceeded to do just that.

I get pleasure from pitty though I try to avoid it, and don't know why. I seek it, but oppose it at the same time. I also tend to lack self confidence when I need it and fear not being able to meet standards in potential situations.

I tend to say stuff for no other reason other than to get attention. Even tho what I say is what I believe to be the truth, I don't have to say it, if you know what I mean.

Well I have low self esteem, and when people just say things even tho I don't really care, I still try and defend myself for no apprent reason, I also feel people some people here get annoyed with me and dislike me.

I have a propensity to manipulate people.  I have this bizarre mental good vs evil complex and beat myself up mentally when I don't live up to my own moral standards (coincidentally, I don't care about other peoples moral standards however.)

I have a habit of analyzing a person to guess just how well they are able to fight, and normally incite said person right afterwards. I can't go three days without fulfilling the craving for the adrenaline rush and inflicting pain of combat.

I'm not cruel, I just have a much bigger sword than you, and enjoy seeing people's heads roll like watermelons down a hill.

I don't normally post in the Main Hall or the Cafateria but I do think its very important for the populace of Veritas to know that the leadership here, in my case as a teacher, that I am not perfect and I have a long list of faults.  I'm a workaholic and often do not want to spend time with people including my family.  I have a large ego and with that comes the low self esteem.  I'm overweight and consider myself unattractive.  I can be selfish and self centered and manipulative.  I have a tendency to talk down to people I don't consider on my level, especially in my work place.  I have very high standards so when someone doesnt meet my expectations, I can be rude and nasty.  I am insecure in many ways and am co-dependent.  I'm sure the list can go on forever but I believe its the realization of the faults and what we do with that that really counts.  Considering how I was 5 years ago, 10 years ago, 20 years ago.  I feel I have evolved far but still have a long way to go.  I'm loving the journey!

I have virtually no sympathy to peoples everyday problems or people who get themselfs into a situation, and come begging for help. I try to anilize every situation, usually 2 steps ahead of where I am at now, and It results in me loosing track of time. I also tend to put myself down to make other people appear better.
