    I think so often we can give other people compliments but we forget about ourselves and what we are good at.

    I would love for everyone to post something that they do well. Everyone has some sort of talent or skill - I believe that completely.

    For me, I would say that I am a good listener and a good cook. I love to try new recipes and make yummy things!

    Wow, what a nice thread! I cook too but I'm not too keen on trying out new recipes like you!:) For me, I guess I'm good at:

    1. Being a mother. Well, I'm pretty sure I'm quite a good mother because my son loves me so much. Ahaha.;p
    2. Writing. I write freelance for some sites.
    3. Singing. I guess my son loves my singing, because he dozes off or keeps calm when I do so.;p

    I love this thread! What a wonderful way to start the day! I personally have my full length mirror covered in things I like about myself so that I am reminded every time I see my reflection that I am a decent human being. One of the things I remind myself is that I love to read. I am a good reader and it transports me to a place I have never gotten to visit before!

    It has been a good idea starting this thread because I had to stop for a moment, staring at the sky to find out what positive things about me I could say, what means we are usually ignoring or under-appreciating our own virtues, whether we focus or not on the negative side of our self.

    I can say to be good listener, nice smiling person, excellent "heavy-duty" walker, and best creative person when it comes to cook out of scarce ingredients to complete a whole meal :)

    I enjoy helping people, and I hope that the advice that I give can be useful and help others or save their life someday. If it only helps or saves one person, then that is more than good enough. :)

    I think maybe a lot of us are good listeners because of what we've been through, perhaps? I know that recovery really made me more compassionate and I think that translates to being a good listener. And no doubt for those supporting loved ones on their recovery journey, you have to be a great listener too!

    I'm really enjoying reading these posts about what people's positive traits/strengths/skills are!

    The only thing I'm good at I suppose is re-telling stories. Not telling them. I know what a good story is and when I hear a good story or even a bad one, I can make it more interesting than the original. I haven't doing any of that lately, that would explain why I've been feeling blue for a while.

    Well, I believe I am a good listener and a very patient person. I also know how to cook, but mostly pasta recipes only. :)

    Being proud of yourself can be healthy since it can make yourself feel better. So saying positive about yourself is like conditioning your mind of how to think about good things. Being positive is good than always seeing the negative in everything.

    I love this.
    I am caring and loving. I am the one that people run to when they need a shoulder to lean because they know I will be there for them. I am good at loving people and bringing out the best in them.

    This is an interesting thread...

    All I can say is that I am the kind of person who is very loving and caring to my family...When it comes to my family I will do everything and fight for my family because they are my life and inspiration in this world...

    I do not underestimate small people who had big dreams in life because someday you will never know that they will be the one to help you.

    I had also a passion for cooking that is why I will never stop cooking foods that will give pleasure to my family.

    I am a loyal and a true friend.
