She’ll post OOC about how she sucks at writing. I’ll post uplifting message about how great she is, a solid paragraph or two of encouragement. She’ll post a simple thanks. Then a few replies later she’ll be at it again.
It’s the same cycle, and it is a constant struggle for me. My partner is a good writer, but either she doesn’t see that, or she’s fishing for compliments. Either way, I’m kind of getting sick of constantly having to shower her in praise and try to raise her spirits about her writing. It’s gotten really old, and no matter what I say she still pities herself and her writing.
This could go two ways, either she’s seeking attention or she’s depressed. As someone dealing with depression, I CONSTANTLY berate myself for typos or awkward sentences, because I feel like I’ve let down my partner(s) and I’m not living up to my own potential. It’s probably an emotional problem that goes deeper than just her writing, so I would suggest just being supportive and being there for her.
