can someone with decent knowledge of eastern philosophies explain the main differences and similarities between Buddhism, Taoism, and Confucianism?

Buddhism is focused on reaching enlightenment and oneness.
Taoism is focused on being empty and in the moment, very similar to zen.
Confucianism is all about self improvement, and moral upholding.

Taoism and Buddhism are similar, while Confucianism is like religion without spirituality.
