You know what I can’t understand? You have all these people telling you all the time how great you are, smart and funny and talented and all that, I mean endlessly, I’ve been telling you for years. So why don’t you believe it?
— David Nicholls, One Day
Reading this quote made me think a bit. It made me think about everyone today getting complimented and not even taking the compliment. It's almost as if it is rude nowadays for people to accept the compliments that they get from people, and I don't understand it. The people who do not accept the compliments are also the people who don't seem to have very high self esteem. Don't you realize you're not confident? Take the things people say about you and use them for yourself. Learn from them, grow from them, whatever furthers you.
