Entry: Compliments Monday, June 21, 2004



When we do something creditable, we look for compliments and applauses from our colleagues and superiors. I have hardly met any person who doesn't look for applauses and recognition. True even I do look for compliments about my work( if I do any work:p).

A lady told me that Indians dont take credit if they deserve it and fume about it later on. She even told me that if we take credits for our work, it will be a boost to our self-esteem which will help our personality develop.

Now I am sure that you will all agree to the fact that no one is perfect in this world. Everyone has some defect in themselves. So why is it that we look for compliments and words of appreciation from people who arent perfect?

sahi hai bhai!! but it is not the question of who compliments us(perfect or omperfect people) it is only a method of gratyfying ur senses. it pleases ur ears, ur ego, but most of all it boosts ur self esteem. but on the other hand i guess u r right! compliments from an imperfect person is like one blind person helping another blind person which means that the result has to be a disaster for both. true, life is a viscious circle.

so true.......actually there are two kinds of people: those who do the work and those who take the credit. I try to be in the first group; there was much less competition. :o)

Too much receiving compliments maybe not really good ... but sometimes compliments are important too ... so we know how well we have done and as encouragement for us so we can continue doing well. :)

its just how all of us humans are ... i mean i dont think there is even one person who wouldn't ask for approval after he/she thinks that he/she has done something good. This was a mysterious little post like the previous one ... so i cant say much more than this :-) ... something tells me u need to be CHEERED UP ... well ... looking at that list of people in ur BLOG ROLL i am very shure there must be quite a number of people who can help you overcome whatever hurdles u see ... take care buddy
