Needing praise?


Nietzsche  said he could not believe in a God who needed to be praised all the time.

I see praise differently.

When I give someone words of kindness for something they have done or for who they are, I am not affirming them  to make them feel good . I am recognizing that a standard has been met and it helps me place things in perspective.  

It puts me in a humble state.   Elevating someone else is good for me.
