    In Ireland, people are raised here not to
    see the good in themselves...

    Particularly in years passed one would have
    been accused of having "a swelled head" if
    they had shown any confidence in themselves.

    I tell our son every day how beautiful he is..he
    says "I know Mum" :)

    What a shame there are so many people walking
    around with "bowed" heads and slumped shoulders
    cos they thought it was bad to see good in themselves..

    People are SO ready to criticise, but how many will
    praise...

    So what do you like about yourself.....

    I like my hair, eyes, smile, legs, butt and
    more....

    And (facets) of my personality...

    Now your turn!

    This is part of my work...I help people to build
    self esteem through healing and talking...

    :)

    So that is probably another reason why the Irish have so long been the butt of English jokes.

    Passing past the last comment.

    I guess i like the fact i am pretty tall,
    i like that i have a good few nationalities in me.
    That i can be a good listener and help people i class as freinds when they are down.
    I am very stubbern at times i like that.
    I like being submissive to females
    But i also like not being submissive to males.

    I like the way i have bounced back from many down falls in my life
    That i am open to most things
    I can find fun in most things , but not i nall, some things are just not worth bothering to see a fun side to, because the fun does not exsist to see.

    I like that ican get on with most females, ( not to fussed about trying to get on with males so much )

    There are probably other things about me , but i never have been one to delve to deep into the good about me .
    I know some that like to delve into the bad side of me , and maybe would get burnt in real life from doing so.

    when im good im better , when im bad im best :p

    Any time Scorp hun :)
    The English are on the whole the same as the Irish as in not being willing or able to always see the good in themselves, they much prefer to belittle every other nation to make up for their own problems . :p

    I like a lot of things about myself.

    I'm an intellegent, hard working and strong willed woman. I love to love life and I love to love myself and others. I like that I am easy to get along with, and that I am constantly making new friends. I don't think I've ever met a stranger. I am great at crafts, and I am a good singer.

    Physical qualities?

    I really like my eyes. They give my whole face character...And I like how my nose looks just perfect with my piercing.

    I love to sing, and think I am good at it.

    I love to work with graphics, and build websites.

    I love my hair.

    I enjoy doing cross stitch.

    I have a fantastic pair of tits! LOL! Really nice eyes, full lips, great ass and lovely hair.

    Other than that I am a good cook and not stupid by any means.
    How is that SS?

    I like the new method of dealing with the grinch by the way, just ignore him and maybe he will go away.

    I Like myself, I like my lot, and I wouldnt chnage anything that has happened in my life, good or bad.

    I can sing, I know that becuase people are prepared to pay money to see me do that
    I am good at my job - I know that from a recent promotion
    I am a patient mother, I have to be I have an autistic child
    I am happy with part of my body, and not with other parts, but that is natural, I would like to loose a lot more weight but it is not an issue,
    I like to perform and I like to be center of attention. ( not sure if this is a good or bad thing but, its me, warts an all)
    I love my breast's, so much so I have just posted them in the pic site,


    oh, and I was brought up with a strictly Irish upbringing, My father being the head of the household, and a master at mental abuse.



    ( and one question ..........grinch?????)

    I love my sense of humor which I think I hide behind because of low self esteem. My humor is a 1000 times stronger that my real personality. I am really a shy person but my humor makes me look very forward.

    The French have the Belgians to make fun of, the Spanish pick on a village in their own country called Lepe, Germans take the piss out of the rest of the world.
    Most, if not all countries use another as a butt for their jokes as a release mechanism to prove their feeling of superiority, it's quite normal.

    Americans are lucky at the moment, their butt of jokes is home grown.

    The Irish channelled their sorrow through song and dance...

    yes that is the reason for many of the sad ballads...laments
    they are called here...

    The irony is, the Irish are very talented people but as we all
    know the butt of racist jokes for many a year....

    Of course things are changing now....Ireland is the new rock
    and roll....it appears that many a famous one lives here....my
    neighbours are Jeremy Irons the actor and David Putnam the
    famous film director....

    It is becoming the isle of plenty....

    Karma at last....whilst Rule Brittania is looking a little lame
    these days...

    lol
    :)

    Thanks everyone for saying something good about yourself...
    keep em coming...we need more self approval...for sure :)

    Who said anything about likes and dislikes?

    Being the butt of jokes is a slightly different topic!

    The Spanish make fun of people from Lepe, but dislike Moroccans.

    The French take the piss out of Belgians, but dislike Algerians, it has been that way for a long time.

    Got it now?
