Some of us (or maybe a lot of us) have a hard time finding the positive in ourselves and only see the negative (me included.) So, I'm starting a thread that may land up being short but who knows?????

I'm great at cooking. I don't like to do it, but I do it well. The best thing I ever made was maple/grapenuts ice cream from a ben and jerry's cookbook.

Wow this is a challenge munkster. I think I'm good at cooking and at computers especially the Internet. I'm also good at helping other people. Sometimes too much that I don't take care of myself....

Sometimes you need to run away just to see who will follow you.

Sometimes when I say "I'm okay", I want someone to look me in the eyes, hug me tight and say "I know you are not".

Just because I'm smiling doesn't mean I'm happy.

Thanks to all who replied ...MoMo...waiting to hear what you think you're good at. I could rattle off at least a few from knowing you on here, but that would make your job easy and you wouldn't "own" it. I'm hoping soon you'll write something because you are worth it. My strange flavored ice cream was/is incredible. Now I only wish it was healthy but with that much heavy cream, it's not happening soon . I guess I won't tell my doc .

Hmm what am I good at that I can respect?
I try to work at getting better.
I try to take risks when that's what's called for.
I think I care about other people.
I'm open to relationships (although I'm nervous about dating).
I'm a decent student at college (if the workload isn't too large and I'm not too down)

Munkster, what were you thinking?

OK, I'll tell you one since I think you're trying. You are a baal chesed. You are forever thinking of others and helping others on here and in "real" life. Depression makes many people (like me) very self-centered, and you my friend are NOT. Even if you do small things (and I don't believe they are small) they have a ripple effect. It makes others want to help others.....And then you tell us in the accommplishments section and it inspires others to do the same. (See what I mean???) I hope you see that side of you. I'm a little sad you can't see it staring you in the face since it is one of my favorite things about you. I guess this goes under "I think I care about other people." You need to toot your own horn, MoMo. Come on, TOOT TOOT TOOT . I know you can.

Good at intellectualizing, avoiding feelings or using too many words to describe them rather than feel them!

Im good at beating myself up, ignoring my postive traits and hiding what I really feel... Im gut at messing things up and being insenstive. Im good at being depressed and insuring that i stay that way. Im good at being selfish and a brat. Im good at making things all about me and wasting time. Im good at freaking out over nothing.
I have to admit, thats a lot of talent..... =(
great idea Munkster!!! s smart!!!

Chana, I get you. It's taken me all these days to think of something I'm good at. But I did.
I'm good at baking challah.
Keep trying, for our sake.

I luv homemade challah and I'm not too good at that...mine is always too crusty. My kids prefer bakery. But I'm good at ice cream . I guess I won't complain about that. I'm apparently pretty good at making turkey and stuffing too. Had it for shabbos and hardly any leftovers....only 4 of us so that says we are massive pigs or soemthing. LOL

Channa....keep trying and you'll find SOMETHING you're good at. I know a few but won't give it away.

What if Im talented in juggling on a unicycle on a tightrope in a tzunami? dont you think i should know what im good at? i dont want my talent for that to be unnoticed by me! its a crime not to tell me!! What if im good at preforming surgery? that means i should be saving up for a scalpel (And lots of insurance) ...

I never met u in person so I don't know if you'd make a good surgeon...you need a steady hand....the spaz isn't a good thing in surgery . Anyhooooooo, since you wrote one I'll write one. You are a good listener. You reach out to people who are having a good time. You give advice and thoughts from the heart. You don't try to drive people crazy. You're empathetic. I'm glad you posted something sincere that you're good at . GOod for you .

And juggling on a tricycle on a tightrope in a tsunami is a VERY useful skill which you ought to be thankful for!!!!
