    Hey all,

    Is anyone is keen to share some of your good qualities? The things about you that you really like, or that make you a good and valuable human?

    A lot of the time we tend to focus on the critical voice inside which might be telling us why we're not so great. But there's a voice of self kindness in there too, even if it's hard to find sometimes.

    I am going to try and make it to 10 good qualities, even if it takes me a little while, and I'd love for you to join in.

    Good idea Quince

    I may not be a good speaker, hardly verbally speak at all. But I have been told I listen extremely well to other people. So I do like that part about me

    Thanks for organising this quince :)

    I like to think I intrinsicly value people and respect them no matter how different they are in their background or beliefs, and I believe that you can become friends with people even if you are really different. I like this quality about myself because I feel it helps bring people together and spreads positivity, acceptance, and kindness.

    Thanks so much for your contributions everyone. It's so lovely to read about all the good qualities you find in yourselves. Please keep coming back to add to your list!

    A couple more for me:

    I'm tenacious.

    I'm a good listener.

    I'm principled. (Though this is a frustrating one because it plays into perfectionism and it's hard to uphold my principles and ethics all the time.)

    Hi quince

    Once again, thankyou so much for starting the thread. Some qualities can go either way, you are right- which is why we have to frame them positively and consider how they can work for us! It's a great self-reflective exercise!
