Pros and Cons

For homework last week I was asked to list five pros and five cons about myself.  This may not sound to hard, but it was incredibly difficult! I struggled all week and found myself still working on it yesterday, all day, before my session.  I felt like writing a con about myself on paper only solidified and enhanced the negative quality.  The last think I wanted to do!

The pros were a little easy until I wrote three down.  I could not think of more, and honestly, I felt like I was being prideful when I wrote those three.

How could I come up with more when we are encouraged not to be prideful? 

Lets first look at the definition of prideful:

a. disdainful, haughty; b. exultant, elated

In aknowledging possitive qualities in yourself, you are not raising yourself above others or judging them.  You are simply noticing some of the gifts Heavenly Father gave you.

My pros and cons:

  1. I am easily agitated
  2. I’m shy
  3. I don’t feel pretty
  4. I’m overweight
  5. I cannot run
  1. I like to make people happy
  2. I can cook, and am pretty good
  3. I have pretty eyes
  4. I have empathy for others

Have you ever made a list?  Was it hard for you?

  1. Good job Sarah! I haven’t written a pros and cons list but I love how honest you are! I should do the HW too because I’m pretty sure I had postpartum depression after Howard, just never diagnosed…it’s hard being mommy, struggling with schedules, and having lots of young ones! I love you girl!
