Sometimes it's hard for me to believe that anything "good" will happen in my life anymore. All of my family members have passed-away. (My husband and both sons.)...And I've been through other "losses" and traumas too. So I can really get "down" at times. (But do try to climb back "up" when possible!)...When something goes my "way" or works-out in my "favor" I'm definitely surprised and happy. (And moved to tears once in awhile.)...I feel this same way when a friend checks in on me and seems sincerely caring and understanding.

Though my natural inclination is to not want to do what ever I was complimented on well anymore. Anyone explain this?
I'm a similar way. (except for crying) I don't know why.
