You basically sound exactly like me. Aside from a very few people I am extremely comfortable with, I just get drained in social situations and could be perfectly fine without them.
I do believe absolutely in God though. He is there. I know it.
Maybe, people have different ideas of what god is and what god wants from them. You shouldn’t speak for other people about what they believe. It’s not like there is any consensus of what a christian is. What i do know is that atheists don’t seem to have the problems that christians do. I know plenty of christians who do carry a lot of guilt. That’s pretty much what the OP is about isn’t it?

As a believer he/she is already forgiven. By repenting he is keeping his nature in tune with God's and all is well. I guess it depends on his specific faith. So your question might be of no need. But, I'm glad you asked it since it may help other believers know their place in Christ - we are righteous before God. Thanks!

So, I am trying to understand how we deal with the difference between who we are and who we want to be.

How much time do you spend asking god for forgiveness?
Being an atheist doesn’t absolve you from morals
