Good qualities someone possesses can sometimes be overlooked. But it is quite admirable when someone points it out.
Someone: “You must have a lot of patience to do this kind of work.”
Me: “Yeah. I do. You have to when dealing with special needs children.”
Someone: “Well, I admire you for all the patience you have. Because there is no way I would be able to do what you do.”
Me: “Thank you.”
Yeah. I know. I’m special!
