Day 02 : Something you love about yourself.

I work with people doing mental health assessments on a daily basis. One of the questions we ask is what the person’s strengths are. I find this the hardest question to get an answer for. Not much different here.

I have things I dislike about myself, but have a difficult time qualifying them as hate because those qualities have served me well at times. In the same way, I have things that I like about myself but have a hard time qualifying as love because those qualities have caused problems at times. I strive to accept who I am while looking to change things as needed. I imagine some of you are thinking “Wishy Washy” while others might be thinking “Balanced”.

So, given that. to choose something I love about myself. I love that I am flexible. This is not something I plan on changing about myself because overall, it is a core aspect of who I am. I am spontaneous and like it that way. Still, it is a problem at times. I find that people who like to schedule things get frustrated with me. They are not wrong for feeling that way. It is just a conflict in personalities. Further, I find that I speak my mind too quickly sometimes and wish I could take things back. I am getting better at choosing the time, but I still get myself into trouble.

There is day 2. I have avoided listing all the things I like about myself too.
