In this self-critical time, what's your best attribute?

Me? I'm kind. I love making others feel less crappy about themselves and helping to identify their strengths.

I’m good at hugs and positivity. At the moment, this is impossible, corona is trying hard to thwart my talents - thank heavens I have such witty humour in the meantime! Well, I make myself laugh anyway, that totally counts grin

I'm an extra miler. I can guarantee you it is a lonely mile and a thankless one most of the time but I'm still at it!

I have always put my children first

I don't panic in a crisis. Maybe that's my good quality. There have been many dramatic events in my life and I'm always the calm and "strong" one. I'm falling to bits on the inside over a recent breakup though. I'm devastated. I don't seem able to respond to a post on mn without mentioning it. Sorry. blush

I’m good at just being with people, letting them talk, release and alleviate some pressure/pain for them.

@Jackabobbo you'll get there. Don't be afraid not to be the strong one though from time to time. Ring someone or zoom (if you are in a place you can still social distance folk, do that) let them know you're not ok just now x

I'm practical, level-headed and keep calm in a crisis/emergency. Good job really as DH is so slow to react to anything - from a child hurting themselves to mopping up a spilt drink!

@Bloodhoundgang thank you. I keep crying about it. Not me at all. I know I'll get there in the end, it's just taking a while. Maybe I will try and speak to someone about it. Thank you for your kind words.

I'm caring.
