20 Things I Like About Me

No, I am not conceited but it’s easy to write about things we love and like about others but when it comes to ourselves sometimes we draw a blank. I know I hate answering the question “Why should I hire you” on job interviews. I wish I could say everthing that I am so easily, but we have been trained not to think too highly of ourselves. However, without self-esteem and self-confidence it will be hard for us to accomplish what we desire in life.

What do you like about yourself?


  1. This is such a nice list of positive values 🙂

    You are indeed a happy person 🙂

    I like being able to accept whatever life gives me.

    Have a great day.

    Anand 🙂

  2. I like giving in to my obsessive nature – if I become passionate about something, I will keep working on it until I am satisfied with the results. Right now, it’s photography. Next month might be something else.☺ Had to think about the response, great post, you are right, we are ‘trained to not to think too highly of ourselves’

  3. My relationship with my husband and children, my persistence, organizational skills, flexibility, as well as my ears and feet (that’s why I love earrings and pedicures)!

  4. Yeahy for the positive message =) I like my hair, my body actually really about everything. Because if I ain’t liking myself, why should others^^

  5. A very interesting way to look at oneself. I can relate with you re organisational skills, relationship with God and with my husband, my educational level and my ability to solve most problems. Thank you for making me think about this

  6. My willingness to try.
    My imperfections I accept.
    My unselfish heart
    My Love of African American History
    My walk
    My voice
    My Natural Beauty
    My personality
    My height
    My handwriting
    My patience
    My Love for me
    My Love for others
    I like being a visionary
    I even like being a dreamer
    I like my deep level of thinking
    I like my determination towards things
    I like the color of my hair

  7. I love that I am a people person and no matter what someone has done or have not done I always try to find the good in people.

  8. Love this post! Sometimes people make us feel like it is wrong to love ourselves, but if we can’t love ourselves we can’t give love to others. I love that I think what I choose to think, not what I am told to 🙂

  9. This…more people should create “I Like About Me’ lists like this. It’s too easy to negatively talk down to ourselves. People should take the time to remind themselves of the good and not be ashamed to say what makes them wonderful!
