Did you believe the person who gave you the kindness? or
Did you offer a negative response to the compliment?
Did you feel you deserved the compliment(s)?
Seemingly simple questions ....
NOW think about a recent time when you have complimented someone else.
Did it make them smile?
Were they surprised and visibly "moved" that someone took the time to grace them with such a kindness?
How did you feel inside after you complimented the person? It was a good feeling, right? I mean it made you happy that you made another happy, didn't it?
Lastly WHY did you do it?
Lots of questions, but there is a reason I was asking you.
Next time someone compliments you, embrace the gift they have given you.....believe that your light is shining and that you have made a difference
