So often people tend to get down on themselves or dwell on their personal faults. But what exactly do you like about yourself? Share those traits that make you special...I look forward to reading your responses!

Hmmmm... I think I like the way I'm not shy around people. But it doesn't mean that I'm a "people" person. I just feel confident whenever I'm around people, whether I know them or not. I'm not afraid to speak out, or to ask if I have some questions. I also like how spontaneous I can be when I'm with friends, be the center of attention and make them laugh. Lastly, I like the writer in me. I like how I can play words and transform them into a formal document or a freestyle journal about my life. :-)

What an awesome discussion topic! I agree that all too often we focus on what we wish to change about ourselves and seldom focus on what we like about ourselves! I really enjoy your positivly worded question and outlook! As for myself, I like that I am approachable. I am often told by others that I am easy to talk to and give off an aura that it is okay to ask me questions and talk. I also like that I am a gifted nurse and consider myself educated. If I don't know something, I enjoy finding out. I am loyal and trustworthy and feel strongly about those traits and look for them in those who I befriend.

This is a really great question. You are right we mostly concentrate on our faults but when it comes to our good sides we feel if we say something it make sound like bragging. What I like about myself: I am a cheerful person, I approach things that I like with a lot of enthusiasm, I am not afraid to start anything although I know I won't finish it if I don't like it, I like my power of organization and bringing people together, I like the fact that I tend to think about other people before I do something that my hurt them.
