A friend in college. He said, "You are so strange...don't ever change." I never forgot that.
Second, someone told me that I was strong and that they wished they could be just as strong as I was. That meant a lot because I see myself as wanting to be that way but always falling short of the mark.
A former college colleague, who is also friend of my brother, has once told him ''I admire your brother. That guy can achieve anything he wants''. I didn't receive the compliment directly, which has probably made it sound more sincere.
1) That my parents were proud of me, I heard it from one of their close friends though...only took 25 years lol
2) A guy once said "wow you're not like most girls, you're actually funny AND smart" and we had only known each other a couple of days but it was nice because i don't like being like most girls ha ha
This morning my aunt told me to keep in touch with my little cousin who is a genius and going away to Berkeley to study research chemistry. She said I get him and he adores me and that I'm funny and interesting.
Last week at my sister's bridal shower after the party my sister told me I was "awesome. Like, awesome."
It feels nice to hear those things bc my aunt and sister are both not the type to praise.
