Which do you tend to do more: appreciate yourself as you are, or be self-critical and push yourself?
I hate myself. I don't like how I look or sound, I'm mean, and a terrible student. But a friend of mine is helping me fix that. Hope I'll get better soon so I can love me for being me. •ω•
That was a terrible comment, it barely makes sense. I'll try better next time. Christ, talk about irony.
What's there to appreciate? I'm a failure.
Haha, but seriously, I believe in always striving to better yourself. It can get out of hand, of course, but if one can at least recognize when they're not good enough quite yet, we'd have fewer idiots. And comments. Which would be a good thing.
I like the way I am, but on some jobs I want to make sure I do my best &then some!
Say bro. How's life treatin' ya all.
We are, of course, the sole architects of our own lives. As such, there's nothing wrong with being comfortable with what we've already built, but it's a wise person who's always working on remodeling the project.
I truly hope you're primarily a stay-at-home person.
I appreciate myself and am not critical. But, I still work on myself.
You need help.
Ray and spry - awww... thanks, and I appreciate both if you too:-)))
i push myself to become better
I am beautiful and I'm happy with myself unlike the selfish negros of our nation that drink themselves some beer and punch people in the streets of the new yourk them needs to t their facts straight
Again, this poll is to simplistic as it suggests a false dichotomy as one can appreciate oneself fully AND be ambitious for growth and betterment. I don't base my desire for continuing development on "problems" but instead I base them on opportunities.
I guess Nebraskans are pretty confident.
I always undervalue myself, and push...
It's called "Ambition"!
Yep. . .
Hell milkdud I told you I quit selling that, please find another dealer!
Yeah, but what about the crack?
Hope everything goes well!
Congratulations, you don't have the genes that make you vulnerable to real addictions.
You're like Smokey from the movie Friday.
You got mind control.
Me too! ????
That is one very smug Nebraska.
Wow! I have never had to "push" myself. When I decided to quit drinking, I just did. When I decided to stop smoking weed, I just did. When I wanted to lose weight I changed my eating habits and have no problem sticking to it. I appreciate myself and the life I have.
Treat YO' self!
Most people (like myself) are harder on themselves than others are.
The older I get the more I accept and like who I am.
I didn't know they were mutually exclusive to one another. I always appreciate who I am and where I'm at bit also strive to be better.
I'm happy as is but you cant move forward without reflecting on ones self. no matter how happy i am i know theres room to grow better.
And I'll consider the civil air patrol. Thanks for reminding me. I'm checking it out now
I have to take the amplitude battery test again so I think this week or next I may do that then go to meps. I am 19 years old. I've had a rough time since my parents divorced when I was 12 so I hope I can get my life going joining the Air Force which will better me and I can serve.
Have you taken the ASVAB (officially) yet, or is that a little ways off still?
I don't know what your age is, but joining a local Civil Air Patrol Squadron would be a great idea to at least get a little Air Force culture in you and maybe a few free flights. Then if you're interested enough, you can volunteer further to help in humanitarian functions with them…
Yeah, it is difficult to get in as a pilot, but someone I talked to in the aviation industry a few years ago noted that there tend to be hiring cycles. So as an example, it might be a great time to get in for a 5 year window, then the next 7 years it is really hard to get hired, and so forth…
One of my biggest flaws. I am never happy for myself when I achieve something (even though i have a lot to be proud of) because i see it as insignificant in the world.
I've always wanted to be a pilot too but that's a really tough thing to come by
Thanks! And I want to be a load master in the Air Force but the Air Force doesn't need ppl really and jobs are scarce. Hopefully by just getting in it'll open more doors to get the job I want
Critical, but not much pushing.
I appreciate you too.
Never be satisfied.
push all the time. my weight max, time or distance is never good enough
Strive for greatness
I push myself, a tend to do it too much, which triggers me to breakdown later, yet I still don't give up.
I wish I could moderate the pushing and appreciating because it would be healthier for me. I try constantly to appreciate my work though :)
I am comfortable in my own skin and I like who I am, but I am always striving to better myself.
I'm with ya, teenager too.
I'd like to be more mellow but I tend to keep my reach we'll beyond my grasp. That said, I feel deeply blessed and/or lucky for the life I have.
Both. I think I can see both sides of it clearly.
I'm content and relaxed - rather too much so.
It depends: career - I push myself hard, personal life ( hobbies, activities, relationships, etc.) I cut me a break.
In general, I push myself. However, compared to other teenage girls, I appreciate myself way more.
