compliment yourself


as inspired by 'compliment the person above you'
i thought as we are all people who often think negatively about ourselves this would be a good challenge.
so write something you like about yourself, or maybe even something positive you have done today.

i will start off by saying i am terrified of making phone calls but i called up the bank and a university AND the doctors on the phone today!

Oh. and I think I'm good at following structure.

PM me. I'm up for a talk anytime.

I think I'm a compassionate person. I always put people above myself.

Good question! I think SA has forever made me a compassionate person, even if I someday overcome it.

I am getting better at conversational skills. I am learning to take time to listen to what the other person said and am making an effort to think of something appropriate to say which supports what they said/what they feel, (rather than responding by comparing my own experience). My future is positive !

I am a very forgiving, understanding person.

"This is what's wrong with the world. Everything is explained now. We live in an age when you say casually to somebody 'What's the story on that?' and they can run to the computer and tell you within five seconds. That's fine, but sometimes I'd just as soon continue wondering. We have a deficit of wonder right now."
-Tom Waits

I'm glad I'm able to think up plans on what to do on my free time rather than sitting around bored to death - which is where the negative thoughts come in.

Today I tried sushi for the first time - it took a lot of courage and I'm proud of me.
