I wonder sometimes if maybe I don't take things seriously enough. I mean, not serious things, but seemingly small things. Like a compliment from a stranger. And I don't mean a wolf whistle from a passing car, I mean a kind and genuine compliment. When it happens I definitely accept it at full weight but I realize suddenly, months later that it seemed to just slip away. I should try harder to make it last.
Just went to look for a picture and saw the quote, "Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened." -Dr. Seuss
I also just thought: it is an average expectation, to believe you deserve respect.
