    • Angelks2323

      298d

      When I am patient with my daughter. I am also very proud of the times when I see my daughter feeling content, happy, or safe.

      Being alive

      • Angelks2323

        298d

        @SecondChance it’s not easy, so it’s definitely worth congratulating yourself for. Hope you keep doing and finding the things that keep you around ❤️

    • Ash.G

      335d

      I celebrate everything. Even if I have to celebrate alone because no-one else seems to see my small improvements.

      • Angelks2323

        298d

        @Ash.G I can relate, and it feels lonely. But you’re very strong for recognizing and praising your own progress. I believe you’ll find people who appreciate your hard work and presence ❤️

    • Jazzy78

      338d

      All of them! Anything that is a 1% improvement or more. Considering I couldn't walk or talk properly 4 years ago I'm so happy to celebrate anything.

      Any day I don't wake up in pain or with a raging migraine. Because that happens almost every day

    • T.Baily655

      359d

      I have been trying not to be so self critical and do self care for myself. I have celebrated getting medication for my ADHD and I had an intake appointment for therapy. The next goal I have is learning to live myself more and to be less negative in general.

    • Tracks

      362d

      Good question. I was in a accident when I was 26, its been 15 yrs now so far, and I feel like I can’t do anything anymore on my own.

    • italianxpeaches

      499d

      Getting up, getting dressed, brushing my teeth... Doing things I need to do for other people online and taking a shower at night. It's not enough for some people but it is for me.

    • kmkrs

      499d

      brushing my teeth. getting up, being a little productive instead of not at all. resting. feeling myself emerge on the other side of a dark tunnel :} everything ebbs and flows, the victories will come (or maybe you’re making them right now.)

    • Sapphire34

      Being able to do my full shower and skincare routine is definitely a victory for me. Most days I'm lucky to just be able to shampoo and condition my hair.

    • lostinbmore

      500d

      I never remember to celebrate them. Usually too obsessed with the failures.

      • tripleespresso

    • Kupkake96

      500d

      Something I’ve always struggled with is weight- I lose it like nothing but have such a hard time gaining it back…so anytime I weigh myself and the number goes up I celebrate

    • sunny13

      Life

    • Skyfire

      501d

      When I've been backed up for an excruciating amount of time and you finally get diarrhea and totally eradicate a whole freaking week of meals in a matter of minutes... truly magnificent 🙌

    • SalineTurnip

      506d

      I celebrate all small victories. Putting away clothes, showering, making myself a cup of coffee, engaging in hobbies. Even getting out of bed is celebrated. (Getting on this app counts too.)

      • NanN

        400d

        @SalineTurnip Wow... this is me as well. The smallest of activity, on my bad days are huge. If I get a good day in a week it's such a blessing. I push myself to do things, like go to the physical therapy pool, and just be in the warm water. Really, just being alive from one day to the next is pretty amazing.

    • archerinnit

      511d

      I wake up in the morning. And I'm able to get up some mornings. It isn't always easy, especially with the way things are going at the moment, but I know that not many people can do that. And to those who arent able to, I'm rooting for you. You deserve so much love for waking up and I'm so proud of you 💕💕💕💕💕💕

      513d

      When I'm house-sitting and the cat that is supposedly more shy comes to purr in my lap- especially when she did that when I was feeling down about myself. Reminded me that even though I struggle animals still seem to like me and I see that as a huge win.

    • canadaisntreal

      541d

      it can be hard for me to celebrate my victories, but things like brushing teeth, taking a shower (especially one that’s not 30 minutes long), getting out of bed before 11:30 on weekends, or doing even a little bit of schoolwork.
