I Am Not Your Stereotypical Anything

I like to think that.
Everyone wants to feel unique...

But, I find myself wanting some praise, because I feel so down today and I suppose that is very stereotypical.
I'm not proud of it- won't beg for it.
But, the mere fact that I feel the need makes me disguised with myself.
It will pass my confidence is just not the highest right now.
Wish I was someone who could claim that these feelings never enter my mind.
That I was someone how immune from such petty prop- me- up-flattry.

Well goodness, Rae, that sounds normal to me. It seems the whole world is designed to make us feel inadequate and it’s too rare that we tell each other the good stuff and build each other up. I don’t think it’s prop-me-up flattery but just a little balance we need because we’ve all got our good points and boy would it be nice if someone would just say they noticed once in a while. You are good people Rae. I don’t even have to know you well to see it, and I hope your scales find some balance today. 🤗☀️

@JustNik Thanks it's a down day,it will pass.🤗
It’s means you’re [b]human[/b]. I think most of us could use encouragement from time to time, even if we don’t always admit to it. 🤗🤗🤗

You are human, as am I (but don’t tell anyone I’m not a real Dragon).
Besides, I think you’re sweet and smart and a good person to have as a friend. ❤️ 🤗

You are one of the biggest hearted and sweetest person I know. You have lots on your plate so it’s ok to feel defeated in times like this. Take care of yourself and remember you have the love of a person and your friends and you are beautiful. 🤗

Anyone who says they never feel the need for a little support / validation .. is lying to you [u]and[/u] themselves.

I always wished I was less unique and more conforming to what other people want.

We all feel that way at times
I really felt that.
