Perfect answer is perfect.

ayapoetpotterheadhijabisirius asked: Hi there! Could you please tell me a synonym for I if you know any? Thank you very much! :)
fuckyeahcharacterdevelopment replied: My thesaurus tells me that there are none.  It further goes on to add that “Certainly the graceful use of I takes practice, and should be among the principal goals of any writer. Few of us wish to sound egotistical or self-centered (whether in prose or person), but attempts to avoid saying I usually lead to various off-putting alternatives.”So there we have it.
