And I think the person on the receiving end can actually feel it too if it’s fake. I don’t really know how to describe it but sometimes, I just have this gut feeling when someone is saying something fake to me. Likewise, when I write fake praise, it makes me feel very very uncomfortable and I just can’t go on with it. Sincerity is definitely very important. I have a golden rule I adhere to when it comes to this point: don’t say it unless you mean it.
Thank you for sharing your insight! The discard folder is my favourite tips. I’m gonna start one myself. I’ve been using notes on my iPhone and I have a physical notebook as well. My idea is scattered everywhere. I need to be more organised and your tips will help a lot. Thank you!
