    I think a lot of us have a tendency to be really self-critical, especially when we're feeling depressed. Stuff like, "of course I burned the rice; I'm completely useless".

    So let's go the other way. Say something nice about yourself. What are you good at? What are some features you like about yourself? You have a nice smile, you're creative, you're kind, anything. Give yourself a compliment, you deserve it!


    For example, I'm actually a decent baker and an okay cook.

    Great idea! :slight_smile:

    Nice. What sort of things do you bake?

    I’m quite good at cake decorating. I’ve won a couple sugar craft competitions.

    I like to bake cookies, mostly, but I also do muffins and cupcakes. I also get requests for my lemon frosting cake. And in a few minutes I'm gonna try a custard with berry compote. I'm not good enough for competitions, but it tastes good enough to eat.

    Being good at understanding languages. Have always been very good at Persian and am a good translator to my native language. My editor-in-chief acknowledges it too.
    While I've almost never taken any language classes.
    Also, Translating have made my typing reasonably fast.

    Not that translating is my favourite job. Just a very part time thing.

    That's cool. Am not good at baking. But I should learn that. Just like to cook.

    You're right! Sometimes we are so self destructive. so many criticisms of myself have made me abandon many goals such as playing the piano or doing sports ...
    so...
    I am very disciplined in my studies, and despite not being the best student, I am very good at teaching, I know better than anyone explain some topics to my classmates, they appreciate it and make me feel that so much effort is worth it :slight_smile:

    This is a cute idea, I like it :slight_smile:

    *When I'm into something, I'd say I'm fairly smart on said topics
    *I'm a good worker, even when I hate my job (well most of the time anyway)

    This morning as I was walking my usual route, a young guy I don’t know at all, waved from across the street and said, “You’re my idol.” I do like to exercise and stay in shape, but I was surprised, for sure. It reminded me of something an older guy once told me: You never know who might be looking at you.

    I learn most things really quick. I suppose that's something.
