There are a few things that I like about myself, on the physical side I like my hair, even though it is starting to go white, one strand at a time. The spiral curls that hadn’t been seen since I was a baby over five decades ago have reappeared. I like my eyes, that, even though I have poor eyesight, they are blue, green and have a gold circle around the iris.
One of the parts that I like about my actual self are my strong sense of justice, which can make me rather severe. I will apply the same rules to a client, myself, a colleague or an employer. Your rights end where they infringe on mine. This has made me an unpopular choice as an enforcer by my higher-ups, I will not suck up to a client and let one get away with what isn’t allowed by the rest of the community.
I also like that I am able to be calm in an emergency, though I fall apart once the emergency has passed. This allows me to help people when needed, such as in a medical emergency (I have first aid training for my job), keep myself focused and to deal with the situation to the best of my abilities.
I have to admit that there are many aspects of my person and personality that I would like to change, but these two characteristics help me to have pride and confidence in myself.
It took this writing prompt for me to realise this, this will help me to continue to vanquish those negative thoughts about myself and to improve other aspects that I don’t like.
