My difficulty with this question is not because I think there is nothing lovable about myself.
Rather, I feel conflicted about prompts like this because they seem so much like gazing at my own belly button.
Or tooting my own horn.
So, I’m going to approach it like this. You know how the doxology says, “Praise God from whom all blessings flow”?
Well, there are things that God has blessed me with that I am grateful for. And I suppose those could qualify as “things I love about myself”.
Which thing do I pick? Do I go shallow? deep? Maybe one of each?
Let’s do shallow first: I love my height. I’m 5’8″, and I think that’s probably exactly what I’d pick if you gave me a choice!
I’ve got enough height to bypass all the difficulties that come with being short, and at the same time, I’m not so tall that I experience tall-people-problems, like difficulty buying clothes.
A little deeper
I am grateful that God has given me a heart that cares about other people’s feelings and welfare.
Often, particularly on the internet, I see people not being kind to each other, and I wonder if that just stems from not really thinking about other people’s feelings and welfare.
If we were all able to put ourselves in someone else’s shoes, I think that would give us compassion for their struggles and difficulties and would in turn help us want to be more kind.
