Why Compliments Are One of the Best Ways to Improve a Relationship

Dec 03, 2019

Think about the last time someone gave you a compliment. How did it make you feel?

Perhaps it was unexpected, and maybe you did something that you didn't think warranted any special attention. But that compliment instantly created a sense of connectedness and closeness to the person who gave it to you. 

Compliments are usually easy to give, especially if they're genuine. (How we receive them may be difficult, but we'll talk about that a bit later!) So, for giving Thursday, I want you to reach out to someone and give them a compliment. Send a text, write them a direct message, call them or just say it to their face! 

Who's been on your mind to compliment? Let them know how you feel!
