Thank You For Being You!!!
Have you ever received a compliment?
I am sure you have, we all have, we all do from time to time …for instance l receive compliments more so here in WordPress than anywhere else – l get them for my writing, my ideas and whatever – but l am unsure how to effectively take them gracefully – l like to receive them, but at the same time they can make me feel quite uncomfortable and awkward – l prefer to give compliments more than actually receive them. When l do receive a compliment l tend to counter defend with another compliment to the giver a deflection of sorts – “You’re so wise Rory!” “Ah yes, ah thank you, but not as smart as you!”
I have always done it … l prefer to compliment others than be complimented and yet l also like to be complimented – it is afterall a measure of kind from another and it is a fact that when you compliment a person, they are likely to compliment another – l don’t mean like we have the ‘awards’ here in WordPress where upon you receive an award and then you are expected to further compliment others – in blocks of, 5, 10, 15 and 20 – l just mean, that sometimes you receive a compliment and you feel so nice inside you – so snugly that you can’t help yourself and you ‘ll say something nice to someone else because that is what the compliment has made you feel like doing.
l had a discussion the other day with someone about complimenting people – and it did make me think – What do you think a compliment would look like if you had to draw it in the physical form, what shape would it take, what colour would it be? – l thought it would be a great question to ask others which is what l am doing now.
So today’s question is about ‘compliments, compliment, complimenting and complimented, but more importantly –
“If you had to visualise what a compliment actually looked like in a physical and solid form what shape would that compliment take in your eyes?”
Let me know your views and opinions below – cheers – Rory
