Praise, Approval and Sympathy

The next point in the Code of Honor is; Never Need Praise, Approval or Sympathy. If you stick to your guns and accomplish things that will enhance survival, you'll get all of the praise and approval you can handle. Just don't demand it!

A word on Sympathy. You might think it's all right to give out sympathy. Person's relative passes away, another person is not doing too well in life. One thing you need to know is that sympathy is low on the emotional tone scale (remember that?) and in most cases does more harm than good. It is far more helpful to do something for the person to lift them up, even a little bit. We have in Scientology many tools you can use to accomplish that. If you can't accomplish that, you can at least make them feel comfortable, but that doesn't include sympathizing with them.

This is tougher than you think but give it a try.
