Some Things I Kinda Maybe Like About Myself

Social media seems to be so negative these days, and my mental health posts are always about raising awareness of the negative side effects of a mental illness (which is GREAT!), but for this post I thought I’d do something a little different. I want to create a post containing some of the things I have learned to love about myself, because a little positivity can go a long way – NO NEGATIVITY ALLOWED HERE!

My legs: My favourite part of my body has always been my legs. For a 5 ft 2 girl, I have kinda long legs. They’re also probably the slimmest part of my body, and the part I’m least self-conscious about. I like how they look in cute skirts and dresses. There’s only so much to be said about legs, but I guess I like mine and that’s cool!

My hair: Despite how much it often annoys me and I repetitively complain about it, I kinda like my hair. It’s quite thick and grows really quick, which I love. I’ve spent years caring for it and trying to bring it back to life, and I think the care I’ve given it is really starting to pay off. I’m super happy with my hair lately – it makes me feel pretty.

I’m empathetic: My personality is hugely centred around empathy. Some times this can be a bad thing, as I really feel other people’s sadness, but it can be a great thing too. If other people feel great, I feel great. It’s also really helped me be there for people as I often know the ‘right’ things to say in hard situations, as I know what I’d like to hear myself. To be honest, I just really care for other people deeply. I like that a lot about myself.

My dedication: This is largely shown through my academics and blogging. Although, like everyone, I often feel unmotivated and ‘lazy’, I’d say I’m a pretty dedicated person when it comes to reaching the realistic goals I set for myself. Simply put: Once I put my mind to something, I will do it. This can leave me with a lot of added pressure, but it’s overall a positive trait I have that I’m super thankful for.

My poetry: Unfortunately, I haven’t had much time or motivation to create poetry recently. I used to absolutely love it and had an Instagram I posted my pieces onto, but I’m not as passionate about it at the moment. However, I’ve always been a massive fan of writing in general ever since I was a child, and I think I’m pretty decent when it comes to writing skills.

My makeup: Admittedly, It’s taken a lot of practice to get where I am now concerning my makeup skills, but I’m pretty proud of the majority of my makeup looks these days. It takes me a lot of time and effort, but it’s so worth it in the end when I get to see the cool and often pretty looks I come out with. I really enjoy doing makeup and am pretty happy with my skills at the moment!

So, there’s some things I kind maybe like about myself. The further I got into this post, the more things I could think of. I’ve also come to realise in my time creating this post that it doesn’t have the be physical appearance that I like, it can be my personality, hobbies and skills too.

I challenge you to write at least 2 things you like about yourself in the comments! No negativity allowed. Let’s build each other up and radiate self love, energy and confidence. ❤
