Do you understand people who don't want recognition?

I think it’s a sign of paranoia and having lost sight of the threat that was real at one time.

Recognition for something good, I presume?
Is “Attention” and “Recognition” synonymous here?

I mean like being able to take a compliment, knowing your worth without being arrogant.

yes, and it’s just safer to be zen about it and just say thankyou

Some people can’t handle compliments. I am one of them. They make me feel uncomfortable but they did that long before I developed Sz. I also hate people watching me open gifts. Even if I liked it, I felt I had to put on a show to make sure they knew I liked it. It’s kind of funny it’s sort of like ‘I have to pretend to like this gift even though I really actually like this gift.’
