My 10 best sides

I’m not perfect, but I have a lot to offer

I’ve talked about my worst sides. It was a bit painful to pour out my deepest insecurities and the worries that sometimes leave me awake at night. But I still have something to bring to world, just by being me (and so have you!). Even though writing this list was difficult as well, I challenged myself to come up with 10 items, one more item than the worst-list.

  • I’m smart, and usually do well in school. I like reading and learning, and try to stay well informed.
  • I’m empathetic. Especially after what I’ve been through, I’m very aware of other people’s well-being.
  • I fight for my own happiness. I’ve faced depression multiple times and survived. I’m still standing, still fighting.
  • I’m helpful and I like to help people. I used to work at sort of homework café, and still appreciate when I get to show people I care about them through helping them with something.
  • I’m organised. And well, this can both be good and bad (if it gets out of hand). But I use Trello keep everything I have to do for university classes, the blog and my life in general organised.
  • I find joy in the little things. I used to have this weird scale on how it was acceptable to spend your friday evenings, and staying on the couch eating popcorn with a person you like wasn’t on it. Even though that’s what I actually prefer most days over going out, but I was so concerned with what other people think.
  • I’ve learned to listen to my gut. It’s still a skill in development, but I am getting so much better at listening to my body and my intuition when it comes to learning what’s good for me and what isn’t.
  • I’m a loving daughter, sister, girlfriend and friend.
  • I’m a feminist & body-positive. And not (just) for my own sake. I try to learn about oppressive structures in society and how I can stop contributing to their continuation.
  • I remain curious about the future, even though chronic pain means my life might never look like the life I used to dream of.

What’s your best sides?
