How do you react when someone says good things about you, or better still..says it directly to you?
do you smile?
do u feel shy?
do you blush?
do you just do the ‘Thanks’ bit and carry on, as if it’s one of those everyday things?
Nowadays, people don’t really care much for another person, let alone say something good to them or about them, but then again.. not everybody is like that. There are people who are genuinely nice and who on the virtue of being good themselves, find the good in others too..
Sometimes when people highlight the good in us, we are often surprised and words like “Who me??” or “Really?” come out.
I guess we don’t really give enough of credit to ourselves. Basically we’re all good people, no one is bad. I’ve always felt that situations make people bad. We tend to highlight faults more than positives of each other..something that comes naturally to us I guess, and we all do it from time to time.
I once went on an overdrive of sms messages to a friend, telling her how nice and sweet a person she was..and she was like “I’m not used to people saying nice things about me, I’m not really that good”
My question to that would be.. “How would she know? Wouldn’t I be a better judge of that?” I ended up saying;
“Get used to it, as long as I’m part of your life..you’ll hear it quite often”
I myself don’t know how to react when people say good things to me..I mostly remain quiet or just smile. I continue doing what I do best, which is being myself and in the process if I make a few people happy, that serves as a bonus 😉
