What do you like and dislike about yourself?

August 19, 2009 2:41am CST
I am quite self aware and constantly analyzing myself. This can be a positive thing at times but also bad as I can incredibly critical. To start with the positive...I am a loyal and generous person. I genuinely care about and love immensley my famiy, friends, animals and world issues. I think I have a good sense of humour too. Negative....I am a perfectionist, I wont stop at something until its done exactly to my high standards and I very often dont reach these. I can be hot headed and argumentative for the sake of it (Aries!!). I dislike that I am disabled. What about you? Are you self aware? Do you ever evaluate your own character? What do you like/dislike?

Likes: I am honest, funny (so I think), kind, motivated, generous. Dislikes: selfish, bad skin, bad hair, small boobs, belly gut, dark dark circles under my eyes (looks like I got beat up everyday). It's really hard to feel good about myself when everywhere I go are supermodel-esque girls out there that I don't feel I could ever stand in the same room with.

What I like: I always try my best to cheer people up even if I don't like that person. I always try to be a generous I as can. I am very helpful. I don't fake my emotions. I am pretty funny. I learn easily. I also happen to have some really awesome eyes. What I dislike: I am a control freak, perfectionist, and a neat freak. I get angry way too fast. I "explode" at people for stupid reasons. I have a need to have everything planned. (I won't do anything that I did not have planned ahead.) I also have a tendency to correct people that can get to the point where it becomes rude.

What I like about myself is that I like to be helpful to others and always offer a hand whenever asked. What I don't like about myself is that I'm shy and that I am self conscience about my appearances

I like myself is self aware and optimistic. I normally respect others ideas and suggestion. But, there was a limit in communicating. In past i had been a dark person, where i did not know what and when to do the things. Now, i had a good experiene and know better than the past. I like mysely a decision making ability.

My biggest dislile is I have a weight problem which is gradually getting worse! I am an emotional eater and wish I could afford help! I'm getting really sick and tired of that! I can't do it on my own! What I do like about myself is I have a great sense of humor and I have a corky personality! I just wish more peeople could see that!

I look at myself and see a person that do not trust anyone anymore as i have had my heart broken too many times and there for will never trust a man.I look at myself and wish i had a friend i could go to knowing that they will not discuss what i have said with anyone the trust has gone with one friend so i apply no trust to all of them.I think that my body is horrid to be seen and that with a skin irritation called psoriasis nobody would want to come near me.I dont like myself so why should anyone else.

I hate some things about me too: I hate my being an idiot sometimes for making all those stupid things in the past that I still regret up to now coz it had changed my life forever! I've been paying for my mistakes for soooo long now. I hate my temper! i hate a few things about my body. But if I look at the other side: I am a good mom, I know that, and my kids love me, and people around me admire how I take care of my kids. I am smart, in so many ways. I am a strong person. and I have a good heart!

hey there. It is most important to have a good heart! Focus on all those positives. People make mistakes, thats part of life. As long as we learn from those mistakes then its all great. thanks for the comment

I am so self aware that I shall put that side of myself on the list of things I absolutely hate! There is nothing worse than constantly picking everything about yourself apart and finding faults (for me anyway). On the plus side I really, really love my sense of humour and personality. In a none egotistical way I would class myself as a good person because of those. I also like my arms (though the rest of my body probably goes in the dislike category!) Away from that I believe that I am a good and loyal friend, and have helped several people which is something that makes me proud :) All the best, Dranz

Hey there. Ah like me always finding faults with things! I am glad you like your sense of humour, at least you know you will always entertain yourself! I think being a loyalperson is a great attribute to have and something i admire in people. thanks for comment
