This is Day 2 of the 30 Days of Truth series. (Day 1).
What’s one thing you love about yourself?
I had a hard time with this one. It feels easier to discuss something that I hate about myself than to discuss positives. There are traits I’m proud of. I know that I’m better at certain activities and have a higher inclination towards specific successes than others. But picking an aspect of myself that I love? That was difficult.
I love that I’m loyal to my friends.
When I make friends with someone, I give them my complete loyalty. I’m confident that there is nobody better than me to have in your corner if you need someone. I’m aware that this can feed into my need for control and my superhero complex, but the loyalty in and of itself is something of which I am immensely proud.
I’ve found that there is a fine line between being loyal and between taking away someone’s power to defend his or herself. It’s a line that I’ve crossed, but I’m learning to identify that line and stay on the right side of it.
And while I fully admit and acknowledge that there are negative aspects to a trait that I love about myself, I have no problem looking someone in the eye, virtually or otherwise, and stating: Don’t fuck with me or mine.
