As I’ve mentioned in my earlier post here, I want to take a baby step about loving myself more. And I’ve got the list of all the things I love about myself. Even looking at this list, I still feel a little bit unsure because.. I don’t know, it feels like a form of self-indulgence. But, who cares? I want to do it, anyway 🙂
So, the first thing that crossed to my mind when I ask myself : “What do you like about yourself” is.. I DON’T KNOW. But, I keep asking and thinking then I got this list:
I like myself, because I like reading book.
I like my handwriting. It’s so cute!
I love my interest in become a life-long learner.
I love my self-awareness.
I love that I’m always striving and trying to be the best version of myself.
I’m a caring person (well, maybe :p).
I like my willingness to understand other people.
My willingness and capability to forgive.
My decision and effort to see beauty in others and in life.
My decision to stop being a victim and to get rid of “mental victim” thought.
I love hearing my voice.
I like hearing my voice speaking English.
I like my kind words and gesture.
I like the way I interact with kids.
I love seeing my smile.
I love hearing my laugh.
I like my writing.
I like my pretty eyes and eyelashes 🙂
I love the fact that I’m trying to love myself more.
I love my habit of tidying and decluttering.
I love that I’m a simple person.
I love that I’m trying my best to be grateful.
I like the fact that I’m constantly writing a diary.
That was my list of “Things I Love about Myself”. Honestly, when I make this list I’m thinking.. is this really works or am I just wasting my time. And after I make the list, I kept asking myself : what now? And then I decided to focus on those things I like about myself, for example when I speak.. suddenly I feel better knowing that I like hearing my own voice. When I’m tidying my space suddenly I feel proud because I know that this is a good trait. Yeah, things like that..
I told myself, now you have this one person that WILL ALWAYS like you no matter what. So, don’t worry too much like you used to feel. And I also feel lot more at ease now, knowing that I shouldn’t have to compare myself with others (in negative way) in order to be liked by “someone” else.
Do you have your list? How does it makes you feel?
