I Love Compliments

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 17,050 People

    At the library yesterday,

    while I was reading a book to my little kid, someone came up to me and said, "You have a beautiful voice." I'd bet she didn't know how much she made my day after receiving calls from the family court and what I've been through. Don't underestimate the power of kindness.

    I don't really "love" them,

    they're just nice when I'm feeling down :)

    One on one I love them,

    but when someone does it in front of another person or a group I want to slip into a crack and go invisible.

    Who doesn't love a honest compliment?

    It's even better when it's from a respected friend.

    I have loved being the center of attention

    as long as I can remember. Getting complimented makes my day and gives me a rush in ways almost nothing else does.

    I enjoy dressing up, being casual,

    and even nude too so I can get some great compliments about my hot body by both males and females as well.

    I just want to say you are beautiful

    and you are worthy. You are worthy enough for someone's love and you you are worthy enough to live another day. So go on and share the love and happiness that you want to see in this life. You perfect little creation

    Practice accepting other's compliment.

    If you judge another person's compliment, you have discredited and minimized him or her as well as yourself. And you effectively told the person offering the compliment that he is wrong! I used to judge compliment, one reason want to show my modesty, the other is feel ing...

    and also like to compliment others... but I am a bit scared to do that. I am shy and often when I call someone cute or beautiful they say that they aren't... or they react like I am weird and then I feel bad...

    I'm sure I'm not the only one.

    ..I don't love then because I'm conceited or anything I love them because it helps with my self confidence, that I'm still working on and loving compliments isn't bad it just shows you know that you deserve to be appreciated and recognized for the good in you or about you

    Yes, I do love compliments.

    Who doesn't? but the problem is... I don't know how to react to it. lol. When I react and more often I do appreciate it but end up asking, "is that sarcasm? :/" or "oh you're just being nice but thanks." I just couldn't believe it I guess.. I'm so awkward when it comes to...

    I got told that I was gentle today by the guy I

    was working with. He said, “You have a very gentle soul.” And it was strange because I'd spent so much of my youth trying to be the opposite that I forgot there's strength in it. He's right, I am a gentle soul and for once, I am happy to accept that.

    The way people see you is intriguing.

    The impressions you make on them, sometimes without even trying, are fascinating when acknowledged. Thank you, all, if I have not responded it isn't because I haven't appreciated what has been said.
