    This thread is the best. I'm super tired today so I'm going to join in to perk myself up. 

    I like my sense of humour. 
    I like that I am versatile and adaptable.
    I like that I am a morning person.

    Are we suppose to do it for others? Did I misunderstand the thread, because that also makes it EVEN MORE amazing. Guide me Eleanor with your lovely comments. 

    I clearly think I am hilarious too!

    It's so lovely to see this thread still going, and people still encouraging each other. 

    I'm gonna take it back to the original idea - tell me what you like about yourselves! 

    It's been amazing to see this community come together and support each other, but now I wanna see you supporting yourself. If you haven't already, please do so!

    I always like to decorate some fashionable accessories. So I like some of my fashion accessories, and I usually like to buy these accessories. I recently discovered a shop that personalized letter necklaces for women. They have personality and retro style. I like them very much!

    Probably useful to do this for myself again. 

    - I like that I've been able to be honest 
    - I like that I've been able to talk about how I'm feeling
    - I like that people still forgive me after I messed up (I guess that's not really about me but I was struggling to think of another one)

    I think this thread should be resurrected. I was talking to another board user about it the other day actually and they'd asked to bring it back. I'd totally forgotten about it until the other day so I hope you guys don't mind! 

    Even if you've commented before, what do you like about yourself now? Things change so let's see how we all do! 

    - I like that I've started standing up for myself 
    - I like that I'm fighting for answers with SW etc
    - I like my nail polish right now. It's a kind of light pinky nudey colour. It's super pretty though especially since I've not been biting my nails.

    I like that I can be assertive and say no and make time for myself, in a way that (hopefully) doesn't make me sound like a prick :lol:


    @Aidan (idk why what's done that but hey hopefully it still works) it definitely doesn't make you sound like a prick. You need to set boundaries and limits just like everyone should. I spent too long not being able to say no. I'm proud that you've been able to and you've been more assertive. Good for you, it's not an easy thing to do!

    Aye, aye, aye...

    This was harder but here ya go:

    I like that:
    - I keep an open mind about different opinions on different topics
    - My (fluctuating) outgoing nature has led me to meet people from all walks of life
    - My creativity never stops flowing, even when I'm not feeling 100%

    @Skye
    - I like how open you are with your struggles <3
    - I like that you engage with people!
    - I admire your profile pic (it's seriously adorable) <3

    @AislingDM
    I've seen your posts lately and:
    - I like that you are always encouraging others through difficult times!
    - I love how opinionated you are! <3
    - I like that you are extremely passionate! <3

    Finally! To Cindy Crawford, (a very close friend of mine)
    - I like how you always have something positive to say, especially when things are tough - it's stupid contagious and now I have it :joy:
    - I like your passion and your determination to succeed in life (also contagious)
    - I love how strong you've grown over these years. <3

    1. Even though you don't see it, you're one of the strongest people I know and you persevere through the toughest of situations like an absolute TROOPER
    2. You care soo unbelievably much about other people, your selflessness shines through so much that I gotta wear sunglasses B)
    3. You're always there through thick and thin, supporting others and just being an unbelievably good pal :3
