Are you able to even say just one positive thing about yourself?

    Are you able to even say just one positive thing about yourself?

    In other words, what is one positive thing about yourself you can say without a doubt that you know in your heart?  I pray all are able to say at least one positive thing.  It seems, for some reason, it is hard for people to say even just one positive thing concerning their own self, and I wonder why that is . . .  Thanks for answering.

    I know that  that I am just a human being .. A man who seeks what he can not have ..  to see the reality of  what I want it to be... but usually find that reality and my comprehension of it ...are but dreams. Sweet pipe dreams ..that may  never be .. but the wonderment of what I concieve.. will always keep my hopes and desires alive ..thinking that if I do believe in dreams ..they will come true . Upon realizing that I am  not only a writer  who can bring forth many words ..I learned that these words can express love and beauty in another .. and the thought of touching someone's heart or mind ..no matter how far apart we two are .. is a beautiful wonderful thing.

      Hi Dearest Michael (cleaner3), wow, what a beautiful share here dear heart!  Yes, indeed, it is a most wonderful thing to be a true poet, such as yourself, and to express love and beauty and touch the heart of another, is a great gift and beyond!

    Well you know I like God to have the glory for anything good about myself because I think that is what the bible teaches. But if I HAVE to say something good about myself I would say I can just pick the best friends in the world!

      Hi Jackie,  yes, praise Him, to God be the glory!  You have a ton of good too about you sweet friend!  Aw, that is an awesome answer, picking the best friends in the world . . . oh, joy, I am a friend smile  You are a blessing to all, just by being YOU!

    Well, I'm alive and I still have a chance or perhaps many chances to make good. I also have a good family. They're very supportive. I can also say that my nieces and nephew reckon I'm a great uncle.

      Hi Rod Marsden, I should say so, to be blessed with a good family and if the nieces and nephews think you are a great uncle, then there you go!!!  Thanks for answering!

    I giggled when I read this because my answer is: I have a great self deprecating sense of humor.
    I am just shy of co-dependent. I suffer from a severe case of empathy which makes me good to be around.
    I have been given the gift of preaching --- so that is a positive and a negative.
    I have four great children that love me to death.
    My wife told me last night that I was a very lucky rich man ---- because she still loved me.
    People pay me to do work for them, that makes me feel good about myself and must mean I am worth it.

      Hi Dearest Eric, hehe, you are too cute and funny!!!  You truly do have a great sense of self and sense of humor!  What a lovely positive person you are no doubt about it!!!  God bless.  You are blessed just knowing all of this about yourself indeed!

    This is such a Faith Reaper question big_smile ... and I love it! You are so good at making people see the good in themselves and I know that is only one of the several positive things about you!
    I saw this question come in hours ago and I wanted to just watch, but wasn't sure about participating because, unfortunately, I could fill the page with the flipside of this question. However, as corny as this may sound, I think the best thing about me is that I just truly love everyone in my path. I don't care who they are, where they're from, what they do or what they have... I accept it all and love them. I suppose I have a weak heart and it's been broken more than it's been whole, but that doesn't keep me from sharing it.

      Aw, Dearest Cat!  I am so glad you know this most beautiful fact about yourself.  A beautiful heart makes a beautiful person who is able to love no matter what and accept others.  My heart is filled with joy just knowing you know this about yourself!

      Thank you Faith Reaper, somehow you've managed to give me a big huge smile tonight! I suspect you are very much the same in how you love others. Of course, I'll bet that heart of yours makes up for a good 30% of your body weight, it's so big.. lol

    A very cool question and I'm happy to participate!  I am proud that I have learned that the faults and successes of my character do not make me less or more of a person and that humility gives me the depth of sight to preemptively gauge my personality's adaptability to external stimuli.

    I don't judge people. I have friends who are called weird by other people. In my view there is more to a person than just his or her outer or physical appearance. I don't see life as black and white. Every so called good person has flaws and every so called bad person has good things related to his or her personality. But yes sometimes even one flaw can overshadow all good qualities. And thanks for asking this question. I never thought about myself in this way.  I guess it has increased my faith in myself.
