the Infinite Monkey speaks: say something

Random brilliance from across the blogosphere…


Sometimes we can’t see what others see in us. Sometimes we take for granted that they know how we feel. Sometimes I have written to people who have been shocked and amazed at the beauty I find in them, and likewise I have been shocked and amazed that they hadn’t found it before. Because it seems so obvious. Because wonderful people should know that they are wonderful. Because, I have learned, we should be telling them.

  1. That is so true. I’ve never been able to figure out what my boyfriend sees in me. I stopped asking him though, I was afraid it sounded like I was fishing for compliments when that is really the last thing that I was doing :S

    • I’m like you – I mostly don’t get it. I like you, though! I think we need these affirmations, and this is a good reminder to speak up and tell people how great they are. I definitely don’t do that as much as I should. By the way, You’re Great!! I think you’re a great friend!

      • Hahaa! Thank you so much. I think you’re great too! GREAT!

        And you’re a pretty good photographer. 😉
        And, I love discussing stuff with you on your blog. You’re very nice, you know? 🙂

        • Well, that’s debatable, but I’m glad you think so 🙂
