During what time do you like yourself most? Why?

Hmmm... I like myself most when I'm not paranoid or worrysome. I also like myself when I'm busy and being productive. I like myself during those times because it keeps me from bothering the people I love to the point of being annoyed with me. It also is a good time because I am keeping myself from being overly idle. As we all know 'an idle mind is the devil's workshop' and it indeed is true. So, when do you like yourself most? When do you like yourself least? Why?

I love myself mostly when I know I am making my kid happy, or when I am too busy to think about any problems that I may have or be facing. I dislike myself the most when in heated discussions with my husband. Just some of the things he says really gets to me. I try not to let too much bother me, and stay in a happy state of mind mostly though.

I like myself most when I have accomplished a lot in my day and overcame fears and anxiety.

That is one big reason to be confident about. I too feel confident when I find my job done in a nice way. I simply love it that way.

Indeed it's great when one accomplishes a lot and when one overcomes fears and anxiety. I am a fearful person and anxiety is one of my weakness too. It seems I cannot do anything when I'm worried about something. I know I need to change my ways but it's really tough. But you guys have proven it's possible! Thanks! Have a great MyLot experience ahead!

I would feel very happy whenever my son wakes up after just 1 call. It makes my start in the morning more cheerful. I also feel happy when I could give good advise, or some enlightenment on a matter to my co-workers. It makes me feel worthy and appreciated. However, I hate myself most, when I just couldn't wake up on time to go to an early meeting, end thus, has to postpone it by saying "I'm not feeling well." Ugh...

Oh calling a person to wake up in the morning is really something difficult, I could relate to you because my mom has been busting her lungs all these years to wake my brothers up! hahahaha... But now that we're all quite adults, she no longer needs to do so, instead she only needs to tell us to stop eating! hahahahaha..

This is a wonderful discussion LADY. I always like myself when I use my charm in a conversation or deal and win the heart of the opponent.It makes me immensely happy and makes me like myself and boost my morale when I succeed in a negotiation.In my HR business it is not easy to convince the candidates of the company and the package they are going to get abroad.But I am proud of my ability in convincing them with the sincerity in my voice.

Wow! It seems you're really good with your craft and you know how to handle people well. Companies pay big money for people like you, I guess. It's good that you keep yourself humble and open to learning more. Thanks for the response. Have a great MyLot experience ahead!

This is true, I know of some people who do this as well. They say that at least if they immerse themselves with work, they no longer need to think about things that they could do so little about. Most people who do this are those who don't want to face emotional problems which is why they'd rather work and look for money. Have a great MyLot experience ahead!

Hi! I like myself most when I am with my closest friends. They have all been friends for a long time and we can talk about anything. I also like myself when I meet someone new...I introduce myself, start asking questions for idle chit chat, and pretty soon they open up. I have had a lot of interesting conversations! Both of these things make people smile...that's what I like most of all. I like myself the least when I am having trouble with my mental illness. I didn't ask for it and I just found out that it's progressing. I change back and forth between happy and sad (to the extremes)frequently. Sometimes something will happen to trigger the switch...sometimes not. But it always happens in almost an instant and sometimes I don't know what to do with myself.

It's sad to be in that predicament, have you consulted? There are support groups but I don't really know how well it works, but at least there's support with the same problems. Indeed friends are some of the people that would make us feel that any problem is lighter, though they may not give support directly, their presence just makes us feel that we are loved. More and more people die of depression, and it's an irony because there are a lot of people in the World. I guess it's more difficult to show love than to earn money. Have a great MyLot experience aheaD!

Indeed sometimes we need to have an alone time with ourselves. I do that as well. There are moments in my life when I just want to sit quietly and not allow myself to even think. But rather just regenerate from nature and keep my mind off from anxieties and stuff. I do love massages as well! I think I'm going to get one today! Thanks for reminding me! hahahaha.. I guess we all just need time to breathe. Have a great MyLot experience both! This topic has been here for the longest time. How are things with the both of you? Are you both still active in MyLot? Again, have a great day ahead! God Bless us all!

Because when you're idle, you tend to imagine too much about things, not just good things but also a lot of bad things - like worrying, being paranoid and perhaps boiling up past hurts.

I love myself. I like being me. But i like myself most during cheerful occasions such as on birthdays and reunions, on Christmas, New Year and anniversaries. It is during these times that i feel very happy, free from worries and pressure. I don't like myself when i'm surrounded with people who are arrogant, inconsiderate, and disdainful. Why? because it makes me sick...

teaching - this is what I do best
Hi there laydee!I like myself most of the time. But I like myself the most when I am in the classroom delivering my lectures. I think that I am most productive at that time. I like myself least when I am annoyed. I don't think I need to elaborate on that further.

...Hi laydee, I like myself best when I can hear something that I totally disagree with and I am able to ignore it, knowing full well that if I get aggravated, there is absolutely nothing I can do about it usually, especially if it is commentary, except get angry. So if I can keep myself moderately calm, then I am happy and I can say to myself, well you took that rather well. Take it easy.
