When the first thing someone says after they taste something you made isn't a word.

But like in a good sense lol

For any potluck/party/any event where I should bring food, I love making lemon bars, and I get way too excited by positive reactions to them.. that "oh wow, who made these" is the absolute best compliment

A relative's kid (who I don't see often) named their imaginary friend after me.

To think I made an impression like that is pretty cool!

Random girl told me I have nice eyes at the grocery store. I'm a 6'3 bearded guy who's a bit rough around the edges so I was flattered and felt very pretty the rest of the day.

I had a complete stranger stop and say the same thing to me. I struggled with severe insecurities for a longggg time, and this helped tremendously. I still think about it sometimes.

It helped me realize that people see things from different perspectives and it's better to ignore that negative voice in your head.

Being told "You just have that kind of smile that makes everyone else happy too." Really made my day.

There was a girl who told me I was the most confident guy she had ever met. I had struggled with social anxiety issues for years, and that statement would have been so laughable just a few years back. It was such a big statement on how well I had done to get my brain in order.

I was waiting at a train station once in a some what colourful outfit and a lady came up to me and told me I looked fabulous. I don't get compliments like that from strangers so I was kinda taken aback. I'll never forget that compliment.

"I like your curly hair"

Toddler at my daughter's daycare. At 36 I finally decided to stop fighting my natural hair texture. Was two weeks into Curly Girl method.

Thanks kiddo.

The best part is, you KNOW it's genuine, because kids are brutally honest!

When I was in fourth grade, the boy I liked told me I was so smart that by the time I got old, my brain would be so huge it would explode and that's how I'd die. By being too smart. And nothing's ever topped that.

CW: suicide.

Most people can be very guarded because of their vulnerabilities, even if you think you know them really well.

These disconcerting memories or character traits are better left undisclosed, for they can be painful for individuals to revisit or acknowledge.

On the other hand, opening up about these disturbing facts can also be therapeutic as long as they are revealed anonymously.

We never leave two movies feeling the same way.

In some cases, we are so moved by what we just saw, that we are sobbing so loudly, we're getting concerned looks from our fellow moviegoers.

In other cases, we waste no time in leaving, as we have just spent two hours or so of our lives we'll never get back again watching something which could have been made by second graders.

And then, there are the times when we leave the theatre, and all we can think is, "what the f*ck?"

Not necessarily because it was bad, but because we can't process exactly what we just saw.

It could be something we can appreciate more over time, with repeat viewings... how many views did it take you to fully understand Inception? Be honest!

Or, we are befuddled beyond words as to how such an inane, amateurish creation ever saw the light of day.

Franklin D. Roosevelt once famously said, "the only thing we have to fear is fear itself."

Words of encouragement to all Americans during his inaugural address, as America was in the midst of the great depression, with countless people having lost their jobs, their homes, and even their will to live.

While America did, indeed, bounce back, it hasn't stopped people from constantly living in fear.

Sadly, we're not talking about unfounded fears, such as ghosts or superstitions.

Unfortunately, there is plenty to be afraid of in this world, and horrifying evidence to prove it.
