Complimenting Yourself.

Nov 09, 2015 2:35 AM

I know that with the amount of mental, physical and emotional suffering we all face on a daily basis, complimenting ourselves seems almost impossible, but I think it's important. So I want you to say what you suffer from and one compliment about yourself that you promise to say to yourself on your bad days. Okay?

I have fibro, depression, anxiety, arthritis, asthma, and heart issues.
And I have a wonderful knack of making almost anything look beautiful.

Now it's your turn.

Jenna, from what I've seen, you have a compassion for others, sometimes putting them ahead of yourself.

I have Fibromyalgia, depression, sleep apnea, scoliosis, acid reflux, migraines, restless leg, and chronic bronchitis. I have also had a bout with shingles. I believe I have been labeled with fibromyalgia but don't really have it. I hear people talk about the pain they have and I have not had near the experience with my chronic pain they do. If I do have it I have been very lucky with my treatment.
