Self-Esteem

   Discussion: Self-Esteem
Gordondon son of Ethelred · 18 years, 11 months ago
We all know that as a group Fruheads are egomaniacs with no self esteem problems.



OK stop laughing



The reality is that we often praises others then runourselves down. I have a challenge for you. Say three nice things about yourself. Not your friends, not the people you admire about yourself. Yes I mean you. You know who you are and if you don't I'll give you the look of disapproval that Giles gives Buffy.
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 18 years, 11 months ago
  1. I'm intelligent
  2. I'm a good friend
  3. I'm a good teacher
lawrence Back · 18 years, 11 months ago
Say three nice things about yourself.

  1. I'm good enough.
  2. I'm smart enough.
  3. And doggone it, people like me.
It's a girl! Back · 18 years, 10 months ago

1.  I'm good at editing , rewriting, and proofreading;  I can even successfully translate documents written in Andyese into Standard Written English.

2. I'm a pretty good cook (I'm sitting on my groceries) and in some cases, I'm a very good cook.

3.  I'm cuter than Pete Best.

J. Andrew World Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
Not only are you cuter then Pete best, but you are even cuter then most women I know (Very few women came as pretty as you.)  And you are the bestest proofreader!
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
You are also a better drummer
J. Andrew World Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
Me or Ellen?
Annika Back · 18 years, 11 months ago

Hee hee.. someone just put on the power wall  "It amuses me that someone who abuses her liver as much as Anni does is so particular about dental hygiene." and I wrote out a list of things I do other than abuse my liver.. So here it is!


I don't eat yogurt
I play bass
For the most part I'm a nice person
I think of others before myself

Yay for edit! and not being able to count to 3!! *actually I just finished reading the start of this topic, and noticed that he said 3 things.. although I have 4 now.. but they are 4 good things!

Josh Woodward Back · 18 years, 11 months ago
> I don't eat yogurt

All right! Now that's a good vegetarian - yeast cultures are life, too! ;-)
Annika Back · 18 years, 11 months ago
yes they are! although... I still eat foods containing yeast.
nate... Back · 18 years, 11 months ago
yeast killer!!!!!!!!!

YOU SICKO!
Josh Woodward Back · 18 years, 11 months ago
yeast murderers make baby jesus cry. :-(
Annika Back · 18 years, 11 months ago
Would all you please do your own list so I can be a jerk also?
zil Back · 18 years, 11 months ago

yeast murderer!!! whats this fruworld comming to?

*ashamed*

zil Back · 18 years, 11 months ago

I always eat my vegitables

....

dude. I can't think of any more right now.

Talcott Back · 18 years, 11 months ago

smart, creative, cute, artistic, funny...

Just trying to help ;)

zil Back · 18 years, 11 months ago
and... I have great boobs.
Starfox Back · 18 years, 11 months ago
Well, I have no problems with self-esteem. Wasn't always the case, but now I have very high self esteem.

So,

1. I'm intelligent and hardworking. 2. I'm good at what I do. 3. I am a good husband.
Sarah Back · 18 years, 11 months ago
1. I'm smart 2. I'm a loyal friend 3. I'm a good cook
danced with Lazlo Back · 18 years, 11 months ago
grrr....

okay, this is tricky...

1. I do my best to always *be* myself in the truest and deepest sense. I do not strive to know myself because to do so would imply a sepatation between the mind doing the knowing and the self being known. I try to live without this separation, thereby living as honestly as possible.

2. I am reasonably good at a great number of things. I am not exceptional at any of them, but I am proud to be a jack of all, or at least many, trades. I am reasonably artistic. I am a reasonably good musician. I can juggle reasonably well. I make reasonably nice chainmaille and jewelry. I am a reasonably good writer. I am a reasonably good cook. Just for example. I'm reasonably good at picking up any skill that someone is willing to teach me... and many that no one is... I just decide to learn and do so.

3. People who I think are very special also think that I am very special. That has to say something good about me, if only in the context of what matters most to me. And that's good enough for now.

Gordon, what on earth posessed you to ask this question? Why do you want to read Fruheads stroking their own egos?

I also find it interesting how so very certain so many people here are of their own intelligence. No judgement in this observation... it is only an observation.
Andrea Krause Back · 18 years, 11 months ago
I think Gordon's on a mission lately to foment discussion 'round these parts. :)

My intelligence is the only source of self esteem I really have. I don't think I'm brilliant or anything, but I know I'm smart. You can insult my looks or my voice or anything and I'm fine...but if my intelligence is questioned or if I'm intellectually humiliated it crushes me.

Hrm. I guess my three.

1. I'm fairly smart. At least smarter than the average bear. Maybe. :)
2. My silliness and personality quirks tend to make people smile.
3. I have REALLY good vision. I like to scare people with it. :)
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
Shhh, that was supposed to be a secret
Lisa Kay · 18 years, 11 months ago

has anyone else noticed the running theme of 'being smart'. I think a lot of what draws FHDCers together is having been only accepted in arenas where there intelligence was praised. not particularly surprising, we're all geeks! anyway. why i'm so great? well, there are a million reasons but I guess if I have to make a list of 2-dimentional virtues:

1. I suck the marrow out of life! I get stupidly enthusiastic about little things and that rubs off on people (and makes many of them run scared)

2. I'd like to think that I look for the 'inner light' in people. Instead of just judging them based on one experience I'll look for the hidden good qualities (note I don't always succeed, but I'd like to think i do this)

3. and to strengthen my priding themselves on being smart FHDCers correlation I'll say ' I'm fuckin' brilliant!'  (though not usually that vocal about it in public)

Mamalissa! Back · 18 years, 11 months ago
that's a fact.  I, for example, am a nerd.
nate... Back · 18 years, 11 months ago
I'm both, personally. But more geek.
Annika Back · 18 years, 11 months ago
*sigh* I wish I could be a geek like you! I'm still stuck on 'sorta nerd, with a small amount of hip-ness' I'm even slightly a trend setter! You should see all the people carrying around lunchboxes as purses now! F*ckers.
Rachel Marie aka RAI Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
Man, I am totally a dork. That's just a realm that hasn't been dove into yet, je pense. In fact, I even have the famed bumper sticker:

I © Dorks!

This can go into another whole realm of conversation... but to keep it on topic, dorks have self esteem issues too. We just tend to compensate for them by being über-weird. :o)

Lava,
Rachel Marie (Rai)

Josh Woodward Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
> I © Dorks!

You copyright dorks? Or is my ascii mapping fubared? :)
nate... Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
Fubar. came out right for me. :)

Although, "I copyright dorks" is pretty freakin hilarious. :D
Rachel Marie aka RAI Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
For the longest time I had "I © Canadian Boys" in my AIM profile... and then someone asked me why I was ©ing Canadian Boys... Hoo... those were the times. :o)
--Rachel Marie (Rai)
Talcott · 18 years, 11 months ago

1: creative

2: smart (random trivia)

3: god

 

Annika Back · 18 years, 11 months ago
You forgot "So damn sexy everyone wants to run for presidency with me."
zil Back · 18 years, 11 months ago
dude! talcott is totaly bangalicous!! I'd do him.
Annika Back · 18 years, 11 months ago
I wouldn't mind being stuck on a deserted island with Talcott.... so long as there weren't bugs.. and it was warm.. and we had food and beverage... and shelter..
zil Back · 18 years, 11 months ago
Blane.
no one · 18 years, 11 months ago
1: uhmm

2: err

3: i'll have another go at this later
no one Back · 18 years, 5 months ago
Finally thought of two.

1: When I make a mistake, people can often make me realize the error of my ways.

2: Occasionally I can even work it out myself.

I'm not feeling very self-esteemy lately....
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 18 years, 11 months ago
That is sort of the idea of this thread. Gella asked why I started it. Its' because I so often hear Fruheads talking like that. Sometimes we need to see what's good about ourselves. I know you can think of three good things about yourself. That goes for you too. You know who you are.
zil Back · 18 years, 11 months ago

you keep saying "you know who you are" well you must not be talking about me because I dunno what the frick you're talking about... who am I? .... what am I doing here?

:-)

Annika Back · 18 years, 11 months ago
I think he's talking about me... everyone thinks I have low self esteem.. Well I don't! Do I? Do you think I have low self esteem? I think I'm going to go hide in a dark pub, by myself.. and my southern comfort..... :^P
renita Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
well. then. I'll provide three for you.

Lisa:

plays an awesome saxaphone (she's not just 'good for a woman' she's just GOOD

is one of the coolest moms EVER.

recently started drinking scotch.

I could go on--that's just to get you started ;D
bored, bored, bored.... Back · 18 years, 10 months ago

Have I mentioned lately that I love Renita? ;-) Thanks, babe.  I needed that.

J. Andrew World Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
Everyone loves Lisa!
MAC · 18 years, 11 months ago
I am... 1.) Good at Bass. 2.) A music junkie. 3.) Fun to be around (i hope) wow i sound so cocky *hides*eep!

"So much better than last year's 'Do as we say Festival'"

1) I'm damn funny

2) I can sing, and I love to

3) I am my husband's biggest fan

Arbie Back · 18 years, 11 months ago

1) I am almost as eclectic and well rounded as I want to be.

2) I am sensitive and caring and people confide in me, which I feel is the best compliment ever.

3)I don't give up easily

Gordondon son of Ethelred · 18 years, 11 months ago
I'm such a softy. You didn't post and I didn't do any thwacking.
goovie is married! Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
OK, OK, fine. Bastard. :P
1. I can sing pretty well.
2. I can write pretty well.
3. I can make people laugh.
Um. Sure. Why not.
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
So does bullying someone to list there good points help their self esteem? There are some questions it's best not to ask.

There are still some redheads that need to post!

I'm hopeless.
J. Andrew World Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
Besides Ellen and Carey are there any other redheads? 
goovie is married! Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
*cough*jaci*cough*
J. Andrew World Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
I geuss I am all about my red head and I can't see past her.  Of course one look at her and you can see why!  SHE IS A BABE!
It's a girl! Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
*scolds andy for embarassing her and asks him to say three nice things about himself*
J. Andrew World Back · 18 years, 10 months ago

Well besides the fact my girlfreind is cuter then any menber of the beatles put together?  She is also prittier then Catherine Zeta-Jones!

I am cute!  I am an extremely talented artist! And I make people laugh how is that?

angelmusicmaven Back · 18 years, 10 months ago

1. I'm a fake redhead b/c I've known that's where it 's at for years.

2. I work the Pollyanna effect on people (make 'em happy)

3. Impeccable taste in music

Ellen, keep posting so I have more pics of Tork on my screen.  What a cutie.

J. Andrew World Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
I want Ellen to post more because she is a cutie!
It's a girl! Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
 *posts just to add another pic of peter tork* Yeah.  Um.  Fake redheads represent!!
Andrea Krause Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
Zil..but I think she already wrote...me, sorta, but so did I....Jaci, who may be one of 'em....
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
You are supposed to say three things! Say two more. Actually say three more, not being a geek isn't a good thing. Of course you really are one :-)
Rachel Marie aka RAI · 18 years, 10 months ago
I need a bout of this every once in a while.

1. I get good grades... and I've finally chosen a major! Whee linguistics!
2. I like to think of myself as a dramatic and musical person... in fact, I kinda like the fact that I'm good at a bunch of stuff... not a master, but good... good enough to get through the day. I like being a... what's that expression... like, an expert of all trades, a master of none? Anyway, yeah, that's me. :o)
3. I never stop asking questions. Even the dumb ones. ;o)

Lava,
Rachel Marie (Rai) ;o)

So, does it defeat the purpose of avoiding this forum by posting to it to say that I'm avoiding this topic?
Talcott Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
yep.
Time to answer, or we'll likely answer for you ;-)
meh Back · 18 years, 10 months ago

Uhm... uhm... *edges slightly away from the forum*

meh Back · 18 years, 10 months ago

*ignoring for the moment any responses that might already have taken up Talcott's challange*

Er... I thought about this.  Here's an attempt.

1. People seemingly like my baked goods
2. At work, the boss/president currently seems to think that soon I'll know more than anyone else about guiderail (yeah, guardrail is called guiderail these days)  -- I've been on my first job with it for all of a work-week (four days), and I only got 2 hours training, and we know of at least one thing I was doing wrong the first three days.  There are other crews that have been doing guiderail for years.
3. Uhm.... I enjoy getting peole prizes/presents.

There, are you people happy now?

*runs quickly away to handle errands and stuff*

John J. Ryan Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
Two words:  Pirate cookies.  Rrrrrr!

Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 18 years, 10 months ago
OOO then I'll have two friends who are opera singers.
John J. Ryan · 18 years, 10 months ago

1.  I may not be the best musician in any specific way, but my strength lies in being able to learn quickly and be well-rounded and flexible.

2.  I'm always there for people.  Helping people out when I can makes me happy, especially when it entails bringing people together.

3.  I'm technically minded by learning on my own, without much instruction.  I like learning by experimenting and doing, rather than reading out of a book.
