Lightbulb Remembering compliments to feel better

Would anyone like to share a compliment you received that really made you feel good? If you like, you can share who said it and why. If more comfortable, you could just quote it. These could be deep compliments, goofy, funny, or anything positive. You may have several or a favorite compliment to share.


"I was noticing you at work today and I thought to myself: there is someone who knows herself!"

I gave a presentation in one my classes at school.

After the presentation I was in the hallway and the prof (who is also my therapist) came up to me and said "really good job on that presentation". It made me feel so good. I don't do well in his classes and for him to say that to me meant the world.

while not really a compliment as such, someone told me today " just be you, don't worry what others think of you"

and that was so nice

Thank you for making this thread, HopefullyLost1211! Usually, when I receive some compliments, I feel like I don't deserve it at all, although I'm grateful someone appreciates me. Sending many hugs to everyone

My boss called me with a problem that had been really bothering him and his *smarter* employee for a bit and after hanging up with him I called him right back and said (essentially -- too complicated to recount here) if they took the thought to the bitter end the problem would disappear.

He paused and said,

"Oh my god I can't believe we didn't think of that.. Emily... you are dangerously brilliant."

Just felt so good because I know that I bested some pretty smart people.
