I don’t ever expect compliments but it sure is good for the ego! I always dish out compliments, not just for the sake of doing so but when I notice something nice about someone I tell them, it’s just something I’ve always done.
The thing I do a lot without even thinking about it is stopping people and asking them where they got a certain item of clothing from. It always leaves them walking off with a smile.
So when I received two compliments in one day, I must say it was a bit of an ego boost! Albeit from people trying to sell me make up but, it still left me feeling good about myself.
It also made me realise that I can be really hard on myself and shouldn’t put myself down as much as I do, especially when it’s about things and situations that I have no control over – although since I’ve been more mindful about my thoughts and actions I don’t really think negative thoughts about myself as much as I used to. As I believe your thoughts can manifest certain actions to happen and occur.
So remember “Give and Receive Compliments” if you notice something you like about someone, tell them, you might just make their day!
