This comes to me after realizing that people don’t really compliment anymore.  This makes hearing compliments a nice surprise.  For example, I was wearing suspenders and a tie with a linen blazer, my usual style. Now most people ask me, why so fancy, often with a hint of ridicule and sarcasm in their voice. But one kind person said to me “Hey! I like what you’re wearing! Looking good!”.  Now I had never spoken to him before or know his name, but it made me smile.  It sounds a bit cheesy, but I like hearing compliments, especially because in real life, I don’t hear many that often.

So take this opportunity and tell somebody something nice!   It doesn’t have to be super sweet or too strong, but just a “hey you look nice today!” or “Like the outfit!”.  I guarantee  you it will make people smile.  What makes me sad is when people don’t like to hear compliments because they’re not used to them.  Well help them embrace it and help them feel good aboutthem selves!
And I assure you:
Making someone smile will bring a smile to your own face.
