It’s No Compliment
Hello my dear ones,
I’ve been keeping these photos for a while now and I eventually ended up posting them in June. You know what I was saying about being too afraid of the quality of your content? This is what happens. But enough about my lack of activity, let’s discuss about something more important.
Today, I want to talk to you about compliments and the way we give and receive them. To be honest, I’ve been having a hard time with this myself, for ever since I can remember. Only recently have I realized that I need to make some changes, because frankly it wasn’t doing anyone any good.
First of all, what do you do when someone says something nice to you? Do you say thank you, or do you feel the need to immediately say something nice back? I usually feel the need to put myself down, by saying something stupid like: “oh, this old thing? It’s quite uncomfortable so you know”. Why do I keep doing this? I have do idea. I used to be really bad at it and when I saw that it made other feel sorry of saying anything at all in the first place, I stopped and just said “Thank You!” ( although I really need to work on my expressions, to look that I truly appreciate it :)) )
What about you darlings? Do you have a hard time receiving a compliment? Looking forward to hear some tips from you.
So a little less overthinking and a little more appreciation to the power of compliments.
