Journal prompt compliments: Time to remember the good things people say

Journal prompt compliments encourages you to think the good thoughts other people have about you instead of dwelling on the negative. Building self-esteem in recovery is critical! It may not be easy at first, but with practice and time, you’ll be amazed at the differences within yourself. For this journal prompt assignment, take a couple of minutes to list the best compliments you’ve received.

Remember, journal prompts are private. They are your secret way of building the new you. These journal prompt compliments are not something you have to show anyone, so go wild! If someone said you have beautiful hair, a beautiful smile or you’re really good at something, anything. It all counts. Pick the compliments that made you feel good and made you feel seen. It is in those moments where we want to get comfortable. If you’re uncomfortable receiving compliments ask yourself why?
