It Helps If You Show As Well As Tell Someone You Believe In Them (Or - Maybe I Might Be Useful To Someone After All)
Yesterday I had a very interesting discussion with someone about an idea I am extremely interested in.  I don't want to say too much about the who and what just yet because I am waiting for everything to come together.

There was something which came up during the conversation which left me pleasantly surprised though.  I ended up feeling more valued by a couple of people that I had before I walked into the building.

I am not the sort of person who seeks praise for the sake of it.  In fact, past experience has led me to feel a bit upset when someone praises me to the Heavens - usually because there has been a "but" somewhere along the line.  Either that - or I have been left feeling as though I am being praised for overcoming their limitations for me - even though I have fallen a long way short of what I expect from myself.

I am my own hardest critic - if I cannot do something which I expect most of my friends to be able to I can get very angry with myself.

So being told that a couple of people like my way of doing something is nice enough in itself - but having both of them telling me separately that they want me involved in their group as a result of it (and trying to find a way of achieving that objective) means the world to me.

Actions speak louder than words.

I look forward to telling you more when things really begin to happen.
