This has been working well for me so I thought I would share it. We all have identity and sometimes self loathing issues..... I took a piece of paper and tacked it to the wall in my bedroom. Everyday I put something on that paper, either something I liked about me or something I did that day that I liked. Awhile back I stopped to read it (because I was being down on myself) and my daughter had added "My mom makes awesome Gumbo!". It made my week. I'm trying to not base my identity on what other people think but since I have such a transparent sense of self it helps to see what others see. I've had to tape the piece of paper to a big poster board and my kids write on it too. It does a great job of boosting my mood and is really helping me shape my outlook. Just thought I'd share.
