I used a small 23x23cm softbox mounted on the flash, but the light is still harsh

I don't think your light is harsh. But it's not flattering because the light is on axis with the lens move it away from the camera.

The light is harsh. Even off axis it would be harsh.

But harsh light off-axis can work. :)

I had the flash on a bracket connected with an ETTL cord. I think bounced on the ceiling gives better results.

You need a bigger light source, and you need to get it off the camera and on a stand. A bracket and bouncing are fine for event work and weddings but they don't provide the kimd of light you need for the subjects you often post.

First Photo the flash was fired through a rapid box that was placed inside of a room adjecent to the subject, flash power was at 1/8.

Second Photo the flash was behind me and fired at 1/8 power also.
