It's always great to get compliments, it can be an excellent boost to one's self esteem. The things we get complimented for can vary pretty widely, though.


Reddit user u/miksmike asked:

"What do you get complimented for the most?"

10.

Lately its been my glasses. Apparently I have the whole librarian look going on, esp because I'm always reading. I'm just hoping it leans more towards the sexy librarian version and not the crotchety old lady variety.

People say that I'm really funny. They also say that I seem very happy and that's refreshing.

Boy are they wrong.

My beard. It's still a surreal experience for me, and it's been happening for years. Strangers stop me on the street, in bars, or restaurants. At least it seems to somewhat impress dates when random people walk up to compliment me. I just wish I had something to say other than "thanks".

I'm an Australian living in Canada so my accent.

Being easy to talk to. Which is ironic, because I actually don't seem approachable to many people at first--I have resting ahole face and I'm a kind of bigger, bearded dude. But I'm very friendly once the ice has been broken.

5.

being extremely competent. Little does everyone know I'm a huge screwup but am good at responding to people promptly. They equate this with competency.

4.

My hair and, weirdly, my facial structure.

-EdgyZigzagoon

3.

I get told a lot that I'm "mom goals" and always look pulled together. The secret is a really simple wardrobe - I could get dressed in the dark because everything goes together!

-YIKES2722

2.

My voice.

-einherjar81

Same here. I'm a woman and people tell me it's got a nice timbre and makes them "feel like everything will be okay"

-BlobbyBeets

That I'm well organised. Which always surprises me, I don't think I am at all.

I love characters I love to hate.

Even when I hate them I can always find the reason they're involved in the story, so I find it difficult to want them to be erased.

Certain characters flaws and the most heinous decisions are written to further story and bolster the audience's love for the heroes.

So as much as we loathe them, we need them; much like our enemies in real life. That is what makes compelling drama.

Redditor u/nekoandCJ wanted to spill the tea on the characters we could do without in our favorite stories by asking:

People of reddit, what fictional character do you hate with a passion?

When we're kids, we expect the adults in our lives to notice everything, know everything, and maintain a just, sound moral order.

Psh, don't hold your breath.

Modern medicine is a marvel. It's the reason why we've been able to effectively eradicate some serious diseases and improve the quality of health care around the world. When you take these two things into consideration, it's easy to see why vaccine hesitancy can be such a frustrating topic for people right now.

Many people would not be able to survive without the benefits of modern medicine. That's what we learned after Redditor forevernostalgic23 asked the online community,

"If modern medicine didn't exist what medical condition would have died from or been severely impacted by?"
