This is my niece. One of three to be exact. If you told that she is very smart, adorable, and fun to be around, she would agree. In fact, she’d say “well I know that!”
Oh that youthful confidence and acceptance. Why is it that women still don’t respond that way? Why is it so hard to talk to women, more specifically? Why is it hard to give a woman a compliment?
Shouldn’t we feel good about that? Should we smile, say thank you, and take that compliment?
I work at a gym. The ladies locker room is a lot of chit chat. This week I complimented a lot of women about their appearance, strength, and motivation. They all responded with “oh no, not me.” Or something along the lines of “ oh but I have cellulite, etc.” You know how I responded?
Bluntly. … “If you aren’t going to accept my compliment, don’t expect to receive many more. It’s too hard to convince you that you are awesome! Besides, I’m always right.”
So women, do yourself a favor. Say thank you and smile when someone gives you a compliment. 90% of the time that compliment is genuine. Appreciate that, please, and –> FEEL GOOD ABOUT IT!
