Admiration is a very strong feeling that should be reserved for few. Criticism for good intentions is much better than unsubstantial appraisal!

Well...there is a world between saying everything openly and potentially hurting people a lot, and talking behind their back. While talking openly is usually adviseable, being respectful sometimes permits it. Of course, this does not mean to gossip instead...

I have a family member that is very good about helping people and almost anyway , but, he always keeps score . To me, that takes away from the blessing of helping someone . You never help someone and then think quotation mark they owe me quotation mark.

It is fake trying to make friends with people you perceive as having high status. You need to be comfortable in your own skin.

Commenting on this one can only go wrong because it is searching for attention. Well, actually posting this picture as Lifehack is a search for attention. ;)
