I am extremely embarrassed by praise or awards. Call me weird, anti-social or terror stricken; these words match me very well. I was stuck for a polite response to a Blog Award I received in a comment, so I fretted and said nothing, but felt the guilt of silence weighing heavily upon me, so I created the blog image in my menu. I hope not to offend, but this gave me days and days of anxiety. I’m writing this to clarify my odd behavior, because I was enjoying replying to the few comments I received.

Hi, I feel the same way and you just expressed yourself beautifully!
Oooh, thank you, I’m glad I’m not the only one.
Yip I know that feeling too .. through most of life really .. all praise .. I either felt like ..OO beam me up Scotty … or .. could the earth swallow me now please LOL .. took me quite some time to weed out that particular learnt pattern of behaviour .. I wasn’t ever used to praise ..only the opposite really … its one of those weeds in life’s garden that keeps us in the feeling less than space …. keeps us from flowing with our talents and blossoming ❤ LOVE your picture & your ART ❤ seems to me your writing is planting you some beautiful flowers 🙂 ❤
Wishing you a Beautiful & Magical day ❤

Thank you. I’m working through many things these days in between chaos and life and everything. I’m turning a corner…
Love this image. Perfect response. Now I feel that my Award Free Blog image is incredibly inadequate. Oh, well. Hats off to you (even if my praise and envy makes you uncomfortable).
