Compliments

"Compliments breed responsibility."
-Mion D. Clarashin

I'm thinking that perhaps that is why so many of us flee from compliments. Why we fight it, question it, deny it. Cuz suddenly, a pleasant compliment is really much more-it is now a RESPONSIBILITY.

How about it is YOUR OWN responsibility to compliment yourself.
d'haynu, write a whole bunch of compliments and/or praises on pieces of paper,(i was gonna say little pieces but then i thought about it and realized it can be any size.) and from time to time ( you decide when) take some out and read them to yourself.
Wow vat a gud idea.no?

I allow anyone to do this.

That makes sense--getting a compliment makes me feel like I have to live up to it.

personally, i think it makes more sense 'compliments equate responsibility' but whatever...
