  1.       I love myself because I am always notoriously easily distract--oh look, that's a pretty picture.

    2.       I love myself because I try. I always give everything a go, no matter what it is--though I guess it'd have to be                       beneficial first. D:

    3.       I love myself because I do what I love. And that's to write and draw...sometimes play music.

    4.       I love myself because I am not a failure.

    5.       I love myself because I have friends who care for me.

    6.       I love myself because I am strong, no one can tell me otherwise.

    7.       I love myself because I love video games~! I play EverQuest, Skyrim, Final Fantasy, Mario, Zelda, Metroid and so                   many more!

    8.       I love myself because sometimes when no one's around, I dance when I listen to Caravan Palace and the like...

    9.       I love myself because I can sing. I'm not confident enough to woo a girl or anything with my voice, but I'm trying!

    10.   I love myself because I acted at one point. I think I starred in two plays and a musical. xD

    11.   I love myself because no matter what I do, I make sure that everyone around me is happy. I think sometimes that can             back fire though... D;

    12.   I love myself because I'm in love with someone. They may be long gone, but that only makes me stronger as a person.

    13.   I love myself because my ideas are bigger than my skill. One day they'll be on par again, but for now...I'll live with it.

    14.   I love myself because I wrote a book. That reminds me...I have to go type it up again because my flash drive died...

    15.   I love myself because I have a wonderful family. Sometimes they fight over me, but whatever. It happens.

    16.   I love myself because every day I learn something new.

    17.   I love myself because I made it to seventeen without making myself sound ridiculous.

    18.   I love myself because my two dogs and cat keep me entertained just as easily as a video game. xD

    19.   I love myself because I'm still alive. I tried to commit suicide when I was 14, but the failure to do so made me realize I             had more to live for. I thank God for every day that I wake up wholesome and alive.

    20.   I love myself because though I hate it, sometimes working makes me feel better about myself and seeing my progress             makes me enjoy what I do even more!

    21.   I love myself because people come to me when they feel they need someone. It makes me feel very important.

    22.   I love myself because my smile, I've been told, brightens up the day of everyone around me.

    23.   I love myself because I never know when to give up. My determination is unbreakable.

    24.   I love myself because I turn my regret and pain into fuel for me to do more physically.

    25.   I love myself because I live in Kentucky, U.S. I may not be a stereotypical...whatever it is, but still. I'm a human.

    26.   I love myself because...I have nothing for 26 and I'm alright with that.

    27.   I love myself because becoming an adult will be a challenge but I know that I will be better after it.

    28.   I love myself because my laugh is contagious. Its like a disease. You can't escape it.

    29.   I love myself because even when things are down, I try to laugh about it or I try to be goofy.

    30.   I love myself because I swore the oath to be in the United States Air Force. It didn't work out like I planned it would,              but I still went. I was in the dorm. I was yelled at and torn down by the instructors. Then, when I left, I didn't fall                  down. I got right back up and found out who I really am.

    31.   I love myself because I'm human.

    32.   I love myself because my favorite Disney movie of all time has to be Tangled. xD

    33.   I love myself because I still play Final Fantasy 7 and cry when Aerith/Aeris dies and I know its going to happen!

    34.   I love myself because I have many crushes that aren't real. So what? They're real enough to me~

    35.   I love myself because I love music, my guitar and I jam out all the time...or when I'm able to.

    36.   I love myself because people care for me despite what I've done and they never judge me. At least I hope they don't.

    37.   I love myself because I listen to all kinds of music. I mean...ALL KINDS. I am indiscriminate when it comes to that.

    38.   I love myself because even in the darkest of times, my art and writing makes me vent it all out.

    39.   I love myself because my imagination is always expanding.

    40.   I love myself because I'm an otaku... >.>;;

    41.   I love myself because I watch Markiplier, HCBailly, Chuggaaconroy, Cry, Tobuscus. You name it, I watch it.

    42.   I love myself because I am open-minded. One of my old friends told me many things she thought would change my                  opinion of her, but nope. She is who she is and it would be the same for anyone else!

    43.   I love myself because there are times when I get frustrated, but I don't take it out on anyone. I wish I could say that             I do, but that'd be lying.

    44.   I love myself because I try to learn from my mistakes. I'm a man, so I'm pretty much a bonehead. I kind of have to                 learn the hard way before something finally clicks. D;

    45.   I love myself because I don’t care about what or who people are; I think I know many people around me who are                     racist or whatever. It doesn't matter...if you take away the color, who are we really?

    46.   I love myself because I am a team player. Join me in a Halo game. I have more assists than anyone most games, I don't care if I get 5092380984239048013284 kills. As long as my team and I work together, I'm fine with being on the bottom.

    47.   I love myself because I'm fine. To the max. (I'm running out of things to say. Oh God.)

    48.   I love myself because I love ecchi. Whatever, my favorite manga of all time is To Love-ru. >///>;

    49.   I love myself because I made it to reason 49 and I still haven't run out of things to say about myself. 

    50.   I love myself because I tend to be screw up at times. I tend to make a lot mistakes and don't listen very often. I have a lot of bad habits. I draw late at night all the time. Recently I've gotten home and all my mum and I do is fight. I realize more and more why it is I do what I do. I love my family, even if they are trying to fight over me. I love my dogs, my cat and...well, I want another pet, but that'd be expensive. I have loved, I have been loved and I can say that. I have lost someone very dear to me, but no matter what I matter what, I know that they'll be happy. Sure, I won't be able to join them for a very long day I'll get to see them. When my count of days is over, I know that I won't have just lived a life.

    51. I will have built my life for others to live with me.

Just scroll up. :3

This really is a wonderful piece of writing. The qualities you mentioned are very genuine, and I like how even when talking about reasons to love yourself, you've focused on other people like your family and friends :)
Grantmeawish Featured By Owner May 17, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist're too much for me, dear. <3 Thank you so much

so nice, I feel better after reading this. Though at times we commit mistakes, but this made me felt that you're really a nice person :) that I should have seen the positive side, rather than the negative ones. You are wonderful, and in the eyes of God (even if others disagree), I am too :happybounce:  Maybe, I should also write things like this, so whenever I'm down, I have a little piece of paper with very long list of the things that could cheer me up :)

Thank you for this. You are truly amazing.

Oh, you're welcome. :3

Its a little embarrassing at times, but I'm glad it helped you! I know its helped me.

I had to do 50 reasons to love myself, but I ended up with 51...oops. xD

That was really nice to read. I'm very glad that I read this this evening - you sound like a really nice person. I'm glad that the event you mentioned in point 19 didn't happen because the world would have lost an amazing person.


You deserve to do well in the future. Good luck to you!

Oh, thank you so much. :3

You deserve to do better!

You're welcome


And I'm expecting better to come soon. We're only 17 after all - the best is yet to come (hopefully!). We've got the rest of our lives ahead of us!

Grantmeawish Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Well, I'm not too far ahead. :3
