idk when this list will end lol

Bpd life hack

During a time in my life where I found it very difficult to think of positive traits for myself (or *any* traits) I had to write them down. I ended up typing up a list with detailed, concrete examples, like this:

I am: Compassionate
> I listen to others’ problems and helps them, even when I don’t always feel like it
> I donate to worthy causes
> I volunteer
> I have empathy for others who are struggling

I am: Intelligent
> I graduated college
> I am continuing to learn
> I have a job in my field
> I understand basic chemistry, biology, trigonometry, and advanced algebra

I am: hard working
> I have 2 jobs while taking 2 classes and am in a relationship
> I go to work even when I don’t feel like it and do my job to the best of my ability
> I try my best at school, even when I don’t feel like it.

You get the idea. Having concrete, specific examples is the most important part, as well as making them positive traits. Now I can list most of these off with relative ease when asked, and even believe them most of the time.
