I am fortunate that I can easily see someone’s beauty (inside and out) and I love to light people up so telling them what I see or feel about them is something I enjoy doing.
When giving a compliment, be honest and sincere so that it comes across well.
Many people find it hard to receive a compliment because they don’t believe good things about themselves.
Receiving a compliment is just as important as giving one. You are allowing the other person to see the good in you, you are allowing someone else to give. If you negate the compliment you are in essence telling them you don’t like their gift.
Start by practicing to just say thank you. Even if you don’t believe them at first saying thank you without making up some story about why the compliment couldn’t be true will help you to receive this gift with grace.
What happens if what they are saying is true? Isn’t that nice? Allow yourself to be built up. People love you.
