Hello everybody! We all appreciate the little things that make our lives better. So, what is the nicest thing anyone ever said to you? I’m eager to know!

#1

An English teacher (in a Russian university) told me at the final exam "It's been a pleasure to teach you". In front of all the class! It was both embarrassing and nice.

Once I complained to my husband that I had gained some weight. He said, “I would love you if you were the fattest woman in the world.” ❤️

Once I got an anonymous letter that said "Trust in yourself as much as I trust in you, and then everything will be alright." It resonated with me because I have self-confidence issues, and trusting myself was always a big problem.

Difficult to pick one nicest to top them all, but I'll choose one that I remember because I found it funny in an adorable way.

So, it was back when I was in university. My hair is long and naturally straight, but also easily electrified and it can, to my eyes, look like a total mess if I don't brush occasionally, or if I didn't wash it in the morning. So, I was having a bad hair day, and I didn't feel very pretty that day. At the end of classes, as I was walking on campus towards the exit, I overheard some young women commenting on my hair and they were positive comments, they literally called it "the hair of a goddess" (여신의 머리). I must admit, it made my day.

You deserved to thrive. I'm sorry that was so violently taken from you, hon.

We picked this nursing home because of you. Not because of how it looked, or how it was run, but because of you and your demeanour. (I showed them around when their mother was needing nursing care).

As a nurse, there is nothing more wonderful than when people truly trust you to look after them and provide their care

My dad told me he loved me. He told me that all the time, but the reason it was the nicest thing I ever heard is because it was the last thing he said before he passed away while holding my hand.

After being up all night, I was lying exhausted in bed with our finally-sleeping newborn on my chest, bedraggled hair, face, bathrobe. My husband leaned over to kiss me goodbye as he left for work and said: "I've never seen you look so beautiful."

- You have the right to be treated well and stand up for it, no matter what. (my flatmate)

- With you I had the healthiest relationship in my life so far. (a good friend with whom I had a love relationship for several years in the past)

- Maybe you didn't know, but you create a safe space for the queers of this university. (a student in one of my seminars)

This makes my heart happy 😊 my sister bonded with her son's photo :) I remember when she was showing me her foster son pic saying this is my son. She is one of the best moms I have ever met. Every year their family celebrates adoption day / family (it changed because they unexpected had a child of their own after they adopted my nephew and his brother) man I just love my nephews and nieces :) I am so glad you seem to also have gotten epic parents :)

When I was young and tended to give myself worth based on my looks, a boyfriend told me what he liked about me was that I was "insightful". I knew I had a brain, but acted dumb to 'get guys'. He helped me reconfigure that worth away from my physical looks and centered on my mind.
Insightful.

Well, I had a very difficult and violent childhood. Me and my two siblings did not have the typical parents/kid moments. My parents both beat us, sometimes so hard that we could not go to school, I even got a splinter of my glasses in my Versand couldnt see for weeks because my mom threw something to me that broke my glasses.

Me and my siblings, we all moved out really quickly as soon as we grew older and saw a possibility to leave.
The mom of my best friend, who helped me getting out of there (its been nearly 20 years ago since i moved out) said recently: "Well, looking at your childhood and all you went trough, you became such a loving and amazing person, I am so proud of you".
I dont think she understands how much that meant to me. After all, I'm proud to be myself and never want anybody to go through what i went through.

i feel like that can be taken two ways... it kinda sounds insulting to talk like that about a person's body...

Not words but hugs, and at work, no less. I'm a public servant, and do my best to hear people and connect them to the resources they need. Sometimes even those who came to me VERY angry or frustrated will be hugging me before we're done. To me, that's much better than words.

I remember in second grade when learning about Ruby Bridges our teacher was talking about how Ruby had silently walked to school with many people surrounding her and yelling terrible things to her. Our teacher had talked about the bravery and confidence that it took to do what Ruby Bridges had done to make that history. Our teacher then asked who would have been brave enough and strong and confident enough to have done what she did. The majority of the class had raised their hand to this including me. And then right then and their my teacher had said in front of the entire class that the only person she thought would actually be able to do it was me. And that I will forever remember.

My current boyfriend: he had been living in our state for two years and he had no real friends. I met him online and we started talking. I listened more than I talked. Later after we had started a relationship, he told me that my kindness to him at the beginning of our knowing each other, helped him not to commit suicide.

I have blonde, naturally curly hair. And so everyone I see says they "would do anything to have hair like mine" and they wish "we could trade hair". It does get annoying, but it does boost my self-confidence, at least for that day.

Let's just say I was having... not the best day ever. I probably had a frown plastered on my face (of course, that was not uncommon, for me). Anyhow, I was walking along and one of my classmates went over to me, looked at me and said, "You're happy, today!" I'm not sure exactly why, but I suppose something in my head must've gone, "If you say so..." because the rest of my day was great.

When corona reached my town I decided to share my phone number with all of my neighbours so they can call me and I will get them medications and groceries. In my street there are 10-12 building that are mostly occupated by seniors without kids who could help. That kind of help is unusual in my country, we are very friendly but not in thay way.So when I told my mum what I did she didn't say anything, like it wasn't a big thing.She got up to go to the kitchen, patted my head and said 'ti si bas dobro dete pile' ('you are a good kid chicken'). It is not much but her face and teary eyes gave weight to that sentence. It was so cute because I'm 25 and her expression was soo sweet. We are very close and this confirmation is so different then pride you see in your mum for good grades or chores or something like that. Made me so happy

This one was very recent. I was feeling anxious (because CORONAVIRUS) and my mom wrote me a note--so yes, nobody actually said this to me but I think it still counts. The note just said "Everything is going to be okay."
