Response to ismnotwasm (Reply #28)

33. That's pretty much what I did. More detail in my response to BainsBane.

 

It was easy to be non-judgmental because, as far as I'm concerned, it's a matter of taste. Some people prefer chocolate ice cream to vanilla. I prefer vanilla, but I would never be judgmental about the chocolate lovers.

You're right about compliments. For some of us, it depends on what we're being complimented on. If a compliment fits with my self-image, I'm genuinely pleased and I have no trouble smiling and giving a sincere "thank you" in response. OTOH, if someone says something like, "Hey, you look good today," then I'm flustered, because on my really good days I barely make it to average.
