So I apologise if I come across in this post as up myself or arrogant, that is not my intention, in fact that is the main reason why I am blogging these thoughts rather than discussing them in person. I need to get better and I need to feel good about myself to make this happen. So, I am going to write a list of the things I believe are good about myself and my life. I am. It going to follow it up with a list of negatives in order to ‘balance it out’ or make it seem as though I am modest, this is what it is and I hope it works to make me feel positive about things. I am also not going to add any ‘if onlys’ or ‘buts’ to these statements. So;
I have wonderful, caring friends who support me and love me for who I am.
I have two beautiful dogs who are the best thing in the world.
I have a job with good prospects and a decent wage.
I have parents who are happily married and love me.
I live in a nice house, there is always food in the fridge and I am independent – I am free to do what I want to do (work permitting obviously)
I am able to feel empathy for other people and like to think of myself as a generous and caring person.
I have achieved a lot of success competitively within a relatively short space of time.
I am well educated and have a university degree, and have opportunities to further my education.
I am not worried about money.
I have the opportunity to travel.
I am not an ugly person.
A lot of people care about me and my well being.
I can drive, and have my own car.
I have my sight, my hearing, and no terminal illnesses.
This has really helped me to feel a little better about myself. I must try to be more positive ant not let this beat me.
Take care. X
