I'm proud of myself today because I did my college assignments.

I'm proud that I have not lat my pain and anger consume me.
Instead, I decided that if I can't help myself, I could help others that have it worse than me.
So I decided to work with the elderly, but the last 4 months, I couldn't (Corona)
I just went back to work, and the joy is overwhelming.
To bring joy to others who need it more, to hear how grateful they are, and say 'It's my pleasure, Sir/Ma'am', and I mean it.
I am proud I have left the anger and hatred behind.

I'm quite pleased with myself today because I re-grouted and resealed my entire bathroom.

It's gone from looking like a dirty protest to looking like a new pin in just a day.

I was feeling very low and had urges but managed to ride it out :)

Tell someone you love them today, for Life is short. But scream it at them in Klingon, for Life is also terrifying and confusing.

I am proud of myself today because I stood up for myself in a calm, level headed fashion with a friend who is going through a bout of toxic behaviour and has become toxic towards me. Instead of treading on eggshells and not daring to be completely honest about how their substance abuse is affecting their personality, I actually told them, gently but truthfully.

I did not get angry or imply the problem and dance around the edges of it. I ensured as best I could that it could not be perceived as an attack. I just said what I had observed. They listened without reacting negatively, I think they actually agreed. It may not have helped them in any way but it helped.

I reclaimed my true self. I took back some control I will not be fearful. I am as valuable as anyone else.
If I have to prove my worth to another, they aren't worth it
