Three adjectives to which you aspire


Recommended Posts

Healthy, grateful and kind.

Always aspire to be healthy in body and mind, grateful for things I take for granted when I whine and kind to people. But I am learning kindness includes not being a doormat and being kind to myself may include boundaries. Navigating that has been the hardest so far as in how to be kind to others while being kind to myself as well.

Compassionate

Honest

Knowledgeable

Actually, honest has been one of mine since I was twenty years old and a book I was reading did this exercise.

We love you, @StellaM. image.png.5ea1cf3f6b82688b06029efb333c57b8.png You are very worthwhile! 

My behaviors also do not show a true aspiration to thinness--but I am trying to change that! Hence posting it publicly here. Even if it's not one of the more higher virtues, LOL. 🙂

That's funny.

Sometimes I realise my bar is so low, and this is one of those times.

I aspire to not waking up thinking I am a worthless piece of rubbish 😞 

Though I'd like thin too!

(I did think about thin...but decided that my behaviours did not indicate a true aspiration to thin!)

This makes me sad!   I think you are more than worthwhile.

 I put merciful......because I lean hard toward being unable to forgive which is a real problem.  There is a song in my religion that says ‘mercy is a virtue that we all should cultivate.  It will keep us from resentment and the bitterness of hate..’. It is a beautiful song, but I usually cry through the entire song especially that line.

I didn't read other responses because I didn't want to be persuaded. Now I read.

Mine right now are: kind, helpful, thin.

I know the last one is terribly shallow and I should say "healthy" instead. :blush:

Yours? 

No, thin is good. I almost put fit, but it was for shallow reasons.

Kind, generous, wise.

I wish that as a kid, I had seen working on personal growth modeled. I mostly saw people aspiring to economic growth instead.

Wise! Oh, that's good.

One of the hardest things we can do is even if we are kind towards others, we think if we are kind towards ourselves it makes us selfish. I believe people have value because they exist. Over and above all, what little I "know" of you in this board you come across as empathetic, thoughtful and kind. You try hard to be those. If those qualities are visible online, you are that. So you are not worthless by any measure, actually someone really nice. We all aspire to be a better version of ourselves, we fail repeatedly, but we try and I think that is what makes us humans wonderful, because we try to better always, well most humans !.

I don’t know you outside of the forum, but let me assure you that you most definitely are NOT a piece of rubbish. That much I am certain about.

Honest

Calm

bored/disengaged/slightly rebellious/perimenopausal/everyone else can jump in a lake - until they can't because I'm a hypocrite and actually care a tiny bit but then I don't

I lack sufficient vocabulary for that last one.  😳
