In light of the skinny vs fat threads, and all the doom and gloom going on in the world, I would like you to put three things you love about yourself!

Don't be modest, it could be a physical attribute, a talent you have, or the fact you make an amazing mushroom risotto. Anything really.

I'll go first:

1. I have really full, perfect rosebud lips and straight white teeth. I love my smile in red lipstick!
2. I've been told I'm very eloquent - I can say in 3 words what everyone else says in 100
3. I throw a really good dinner party. When I actually make some effort it turns out I can cook. Top dish is a beef and red wine stew with wholegrain mash.

Hoping I get some replies or I will feel incredibly big headed 😂

1. I have naturally curly hair that I haven’t used heat on in about 6 years. It’s paid off and I love my hair now!

2. I quite like my ankles and wrists - weird I know, but I do!

3. I’m also eloquent like you, OP. I remember by science teacher describing me as “very eloquent” years ago and it’s always stuck with me.

Aw this is a nice thread

I can talk to almost anyone,anytime unless I fancy them 🙄

I am naturally empathetic and people open up to me very easily and I like to think I make their day a little better.

I like my eyes.

I’ve got really good skin if that counts as a third one?

Thanks for this OP. I’m in therapy at the moment as I have spent my entire life hating everything about myself and this is one of those questions I would never have answered previously but here goes.

- I’m very funny, I make all of the people in my life almost all of the time.

- I have beautiful eyes.

- I’m very good at my job. I care deeply about being the best I can for everyone involved and I’m excited for every shift.

Ooooh good thread.

1- I am mega resilient. I've been through some horribly tough times but always dust myself off and bounce back.

2- my natural hair colour. As a kid it was a beautiful reddy blonde that has darkened with age to a deep Amber. My dad has the same hair and once he hit 55 it just started to fade but he is nowhere near grey, his hair is a gorgeous peach colour now. Hoping mine goes the same!

3- My accountability. It took me a long time to learn to take responsibility for my actions and it's given me great peace to be able to say " I fucked up, I'm sorry".

I could actually list more than 3 when there was a as time in my life I couldn't even find 1. That's progress and with progress I've found a deep happiness that just fills me up. My life is far from perfect, I'm very ill at times with auto immune issues, my son has quiet bad ASD, I'm no contact with my mother and am as survivor of sons horrible childhood stuff BUT I'm here, I'm happy and I love my life. What more do you need?

I consider other people's feelings a lot.

Turnedouttoes Tue 09-Jun-20 20:03:05

Gosh this has made me realise I need to improve my self love, it’s hard to think of anything right now.

1. I always get complimented on how nice my teeth are
2. Organisation is my passion. If you want a party planned or holiday organised I’m your girl
3. I’m pretty resilient and get through all the knock backs life has thrown at me but then I guess anyone could say that

Wolfgirrl Tue 09-Jun-20 20:39:51

Oooh I am loving these posts!

My favourite has to be making a good cuppa - very underrated talent IMO. You should see the weak piss that passes for tea at my in law's house.

Being good with money is something I need to master 😬 I'm almost a magician with how I can make money disappear and have nothing to show for it confused
