30 Days of Truth Day 2: What I Love About Myself

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.

    I think that is an awesome trait. I find it hard to find loyal people in this day and age…gosh I sound old typing shit like that.

    I was on a rant recently about people using “me” instead of being actual “friends”. True friends are hard to find these days. Many people are out for themselves and how they can use you, etc…(sorry hot point in my mind)..

    You rock….that is all..

    I experienced your loyalty this weekend! I know you came out to see other people, but the fact that you flew across the country to celebrate my birthday with me and these other people shows me how generous and loyal you really are! And, in fact we still have so much to learn about each other. I am so thankful to have you in my corner and I can promise loyalty and respect in return! xo

    Interestingly, if someone were to ask me what traits I value the most in a friend they would be loyalty and honesty. You’re a valued friend, indeed. Also, you contribute to my sense of superiority. That’s important, too.

    When I read the title of this post in my reader, I was going to say “being an awesome friend”…and I see you think the same! You always remember birthdays…and remembering to celebrate your friends’ special days is just a small peak at how much you love of your friends.

    –>It’s a great trait to have and one that I share as well. My friend The Laugher and I were liquored up and talking about this the other day. She said, “I know you have a lot of friends but you don’t invite many into the inner circle. I’m glad I’m not elbowing people out of the way there.” True and true.

    I’m on Day 13 now. And Day 2 was probably the hardest one to do. Why is it so hard to find things about ourselves that we love, compared to those that we don’t like.

    But loyalty. Is awesome. 🙂

    Props on your mad friendship skills! From reading the blog it’s evident you really are an excellent friend to have.

    Sad that it’s hard for most of us to come up with things we love about ourselves but ask us for something we hate and we’ve got a neverending list. I’m glad you recognize this one, but what are things 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. ”

    I said basically the same thing on my Day 2 post. We are always our own worst critic.
    I happen to think you’re awesome with a side of awesome sauce.
