Please compliment yourself in regards to a non-physical attribute.
Who are you outside of those moments spent in the mirror? What do you admire about that person? Why do you have people to call friends?
I've spent the last 8 years working in the restaurant business here in NYC. I could say much for what I've learned about other people, but the real take away is what I've learned about myself: I love and am really good at taking care of other people. I genuinely want to make sure everyone is having a positive experience in the moments I share with them. Now while this is a mostly positive attribute, I am also working on finding a balance between my care for others vs myself. I tend to bend over backwards in ways for other people that I have not done for myself. I have had the habit of not saving any love and care for Me. That's my challenge. Do you have one? How does your relationship with what you admire about yourself level in the battle of self & other?
Write about a time in which you've settled for less?
This question. I hate this question. I made this workbook to have an honest conversation with myself and this one was too easy to answer. The recurring factor in my responses evolved around my social and personal life. I find that I settle most often when I make emotional investments in future possibilities. Anytime that I am *hoping* for an alternate future while existing in a tumultuous present is my version of settling for less. I am working on shifting my focus to experiences that make my present moment satisfying.
What does your version of settling for less look like? Does it involve personal, familial, or financial matters? Something else?
