What do you like about yourself??

Anch0r33Anch0r33 Posts: 429 Listening Ear
Okay you gotta put 3 things that you like about yourself. 

I wanna get a bit more positivity going and have people sit and think about the good things about themselves! 

It could be anything from liking how you are with your pet or other people or a physical feature such as hair or eyes! 

There's no limit to the amount you can have but try to hit at least 3! 

I'll start because it would be hypocritical if I didn't. 

• I like that I'm doing my Childline training as it will help others. 
• I like the colour of my eyes 
• I like how I've got a big heart for animals

It's tough to think of these but I had to do an exercise where we had to hit 10!! 

Sometimes it's nice to just take some time to think about yourself and appreciate yourself for who you are. It's not selfish to like yourself - because how can you love others if you don't love yourself? 

It could even be things you like in the moment of typing for example - I like how I chose to do *this* instead of *this*

I hope people give this a try as it was super worthwhile for me :)

    I love this thread @Anch0r33! I'm going to leave my 3 here so when I'm having a bad day I can come and have a reminder <3 
    1. I like that I have determination and resilience 
    2. I like that I have a passion to advocate
    3. I like that I am able to recognise how I feel 
    The last one may seem a little strange but after yearsss of therapy I take it as a huge achievement! 

    Thank you Anchor <3

    @Eleanor these are really beautiful, and I love that you're gonna leave them here for when you have a bad day! 

    And your last one isn't strange atttt allll! I think that's amazing you're able to identify how you feel - it's a challenging one for some people and the fact you're able to do it sounds like a major achievement for you. I'm so happy for you <3

    Thank you for sharing as I know it's super tough <3

    • I like how past-me behaved (despite all my friends "bad influences" :lol: ) so I've still got a pretty clean slate going forward in life
    • I like how I'm generally quite happy all the time for no real reason
    • Annndd I like how I'm not afraid of failing at new things! Everyone's gotta start somewhere :grin:

    I didn't really realise I had things I like til I really thought about it, definitely worth doing more often!

    Great thread @Anch0r33 !!

    This is a really lovely idea for a thread @Anch0r33 self-esteem is such a tricky thing, I know I've had trouble with low self-esteem for a long time. Hopefully focusing on the positive things about ourselves can help, even if it's just little things!

    As for me well:
    1. I like that I always try to look after the people closest to me.
    2. I like how tall i am. :mrgreen:
    3. I really love how my hair looks the day after I've had a shower, it gets really curly and pretty.

  • AidanAidan Clever idiot Posts: 2,634 Boards Champion
    Actually you raise a good point there about height @Riley , I like my height too I'm 6'1 on a good day which is nice and tall but not so tall I don't fit in a bed or hit my head on doorframes (like my nephew :lol: )

    Wow guys these are great! I'm so glad you're all enjoying the thread! 

    I got the idea from one of my sports psychology group sessions with my ice hockey team! We had to write down 10 things we liked about ourselves then we were asked to share - I took so long and only managed a few. Ended up realising that I needed more help and looked to get it! 

    Been such a good exercise and glad you guys like it too <3 

    Keep them coming you're all amazing <3

    Can you do about other people as well?
      @Laine
    • I like how much you help other people, and you don’t realise how much that is 
    • I like how you don’t lose any pieces when you play with my Lego 
    • And I like how you forgive me for what I put you through in Among Us :lol:

    @Aidan I love this idea 

    My bf isn't on here but he has no self confidence and I wish he had more. 

    • I love how caring he is and accepting he is (he literally went from 0 rats to 21 in our room in about a year + a hamster)
    • I love how he is with his niece and nephew
    • He always knows how to cheer me up

    Thank you..I often get a lot of hate and unkind comments towards me. Having something nice said is like an alien experience for me currently. But thank you.
