Compliment ONE person on their character today
Why do we place so much value in a person’s physical appearance when it’s literally the ONE thing beyond their control? It’s genetics, people!!! It’s like saying: “CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR CHROMOSOMES!!” Yes, sometimes it’s nice when someone notices your appearance, but these compliments are so surface level. Sometimes it’s lazy just to tell someone they’re ‘pretty’. Why not say something more meaningful?
If you’re gonna go out of your way to compliment someone, why not say something kind about their character?
FOR EXAMPLE: ‘Hey, you have an awesome work ethic!’ ‘It’s cool that you’re bilingual!’ ‘You write poetry? I love that!’ 'Wow, you made that dress? It’s divine!’ 'You give great advice!’ 'I like that you’re family oriented!’ 'I admire your devotion to your religion!’ 'I think it’s cool that you want to learn calligraphy!’ 'You’re so talented at coding!’ 'I wish I was as quick-witted as you!’ 'I love your positive attitude!’ 'I like how authentic and brutally honest you are!’ 'You do volunteer work? That’s so wonderful!’ 'You know so much about geography!’ 'You compose music? That’s so creative!’ or 'It’s so cool that you can sing the alphabet backwards!’
Physical beauty is NOT an achievement or accolade to be awarded. Beauty exists and is inherent in an individual’s character, you just need to learn to see and appreciate it.Do me a favour, be observant today and compliment someone on their character. Something unique to them. I guarantee it’ll mean much more to them than 'You’re so pretty!’
