What does my non descript blob say about me ?
But seriously wikis you MUSTN''T put yourselves down.
It so easy to be negative about ourselves, even in jest, but I believe it is not good.
(I can be one of the worst offenders.)
All the strong courageous women/ people I have met in my life have a habit of saying positive things about themselves, recognising their faults and forgiving themselves.
It sounds easy to do but when your self esteem is on the floor it is so very difficult to ''big'' yourself up. I think it is something we MUST learn to do.
Sermon is over .
From a rather lovely lady, although I say it myself.
Nope Eliza, i didn''t know "avatar" either...but i can blame the french non native speaker thing
Being realistic is not really putting ourselves down though is it? I know i have let myself go, and i would never trust anybody who tells me i am beautiful or sexy. I have mirrors, and if you think i am sexy, our tastes are way too different.
I am deluded enough to be able to put together a long list of positive about me, but the negatives are there, and they are probably very close to the list of reasons that led my marriage to its doom.
The hard thing is to get to place where we care enough about what is left of our life to try and do something about the negative points we can control: i can''t control the fact that i''m 46, but i can control the fact that i am obese, unkempt and unhealthy.
I want to hear from Marshy, I love his picture of that actor whose name has just slipped my memory, playing a young Henry VIII I think?
I chose mine because I love the gentle and curious blue gropers which live in a protected marine reserve where I sometimes go swimming and snorkelling. My ashes are going there when I''m dead, to join them along with the wobbegongs (grumpy harmless sharks) and weedy sea dragons.
Afonleas I am so disappointed, I imagined you with about 100 cats leaping over your computer and sitting on your head as you type!
