When I was younger, I HATED being complimented. I have always thought people are full of crap, So I dont want to hear them say "you are pretty" BEcause that would mean I am not, Like in Mean girls "nice skirt, where did you get it?? That is the ugliest Effing Skirt I have ever seen" (forgive my non exactness, its been a while)But today, as I was driving this Lady home from work She asked how old I was(because I told her it was my friends 21st tomorrow, or rather today) and I said 19 (she dont need to know I'm nearly 20 HEHE) and she said "oh, 19? you have your head screwed on Pretty well for a 19 year old" I said thank you because it was astralia Talk for You are quite mature for your age. She then went on to talk about how most people my age are retarded idot faces ect.ect. When she said it, I kind of Froze (thats my automatic reaction to a compliment, I think " WHy Are you saying that?? I dont want to Hear that! I dont want to know your oppinion") and had this little panic attack for lack of knowledge on how to respond, but then I was flooded with this peacfull feeling and heard in my head "Yes" so I said, Thank You. She then basicaly said You're Good People, I like you. I felt very flattered; not necisarily because of Her, but rather that it is noticable.
I then started to think about why I am good people and This is What I came up with:
My Heavenly Father, My Mamma
I write it in this order and way because It is my knowledge and love of and for my Heavenly Father that makes me the "good" person that others see me as, and the good person I try to be. Without the wonderful mother I was blessed with I wouldnt know all the wonders and blessings that I experience, and are everywhere, I wouldnt know where they all came from; She taught me well. Love, compassion, guidance, forgivness, patience all the things she shows and teaches me. My Precious Hard working father, he is special indeed. Without him constanly serving others without hesitation, I wouldnt have learned how to give so freely of everything I have to those I love, as well as those who need it (I could obviously improve on the last one) He taught me how to work hard, and take pride in what I do, do it to the best of your ability. He taught me that when someone is in need of something you can give(or cant), you give it to them, even if its your last one
I Love these Three Very Much, and hardly ever tell them so, I hurt them too, because I am Human and selfish. You Hurt the ones you Love because they love you more than you know, and cant bear to see you hurt, but you are stupid and selfish sometimes, and dont want to see the truth. I'm sorry
I am Grateful, and will always be grateful, For my Heavenly Fathers great Blessing of my parents.
