Making a passing compliment might seem insignificant in the grand scheme of things, but giving compliments is powerful and timeless.
Whenever you do something that delights me I may say, “Your creative ideas put a smile on my face.”
Sharing this with you makes us both feel good at the moment, but it can also resurrect the same feeling a year or so later and I can re-compliment you on what it meant to me.
Here are a few compliments that may remind you of someone or even bring up other compliments that you have given.
“Your outlook on life makes me want to live more thoughtfully.”
“I admire your determination when you believe in something.”
“I love your reassurance when things don’t go as planned. It helps me feel less stressed and confident that we can figure it out together."
“I feel safe being vulnerable with you.”
“I learned how to be a good person by watching how you treat others.”
Compliments will find their way back into our lives day after day, week after week, year after year…they have a perpetually powerful effect on our relationships.
Find some time to text, call or meet to chat about what it meant to you and re-compliment them—timeless.
Keep looking for the blind spots and building a better you.
