When you cannot get a compliment in any other way pay yourself one. —Mark Twain

A compliment from others reassures that whatever we’re doing, we continue doing. We pay tribute to ourselves when we finally see what others see in us. We begin to believe in ourselves. Therefore, we rely more on our abilities. Compliments motivate us to continue doing what we know best. We don’t need to get compliments from others all the time, but we do need to pay compliments to ourselves as much as we need them. We sometimes can be harder on ourselves than we’re on others. It is easier sometimes to get frustrated with ourselves than with others. Only if, we’re patient with ourselves as we were with others. When we were patient with others, we allowed the other person to make mistakes and to learn from the mistake while guiding them. Why not do the same for ourselves.
