Giving Compliments That Aren't Appearance Driven
Giving Compliments… That Aren’t Appearance Driven.
Have you ever noticed that compliments tend to be focused around looks, weight, etc.?
“You look so tiny!”, “Have you lost weight?”, “I wish I had your youthful skin”, or *gasp* the day you get no weight-related comments at all.
These comments set us up for questionable feelings about our bodies and leave our self-worth thoughts spinning!!
Are you heading to a wedding, party, family event, or catching up with a friend soon?
About to type a comment on someone’s post?
Try giving one of these compliments instead of giving one that’s focused around someone’s appearance:
Your work ethic inspires me
Hearing your laugh makes me so happy
Your passion makes me want to recommit to my passions
Your earrings (or another fashion item) are stunning
I love how encouraging you are
You presence is so comforting
You’re an incredible friend
I really like your refreshing perspective
Your ability to brighten a room is amazing
Your loyalty to ___ is inspiring
Your smile is lighting up the room
Your work here is making a difference
I love how you’re able to share your opinions
You’re an incredible storyteller
I appreciate your ability to think about the details
Have additional compliments that you give or like receiving? Send them over!
Keep Adventuring 🙂
