Day 2: Write something that someone told you about yourself that you never forgot.
Growing up, I have always gotten compliments about my looks. That’s what old people do.
“Oh, you are so pretty!”
Most people compliment how pretty you are, how smart you are, or how good you are at a sport. All those compliments tend to blend together. I give the automatic respond of “oh, thank you!”
Don’t get me wrong – I do appreciate those words, but those just tell me how I look, and how good I am at something.
I will never forget those that have complimented my personality. The one’s that have said that they like the kind of person that I am.
That is what I will never forget.
I have been told by some friends that they liked the kind of person I was – which I really appreciate, but the one that really stood out was this old couple that comes in the restaurant I work at.
They’re regulars (people who come in often) who love to talk so I tend to talk to them every time they come in.
They told me that I’ve really come out of my shell since I had first started working (which was years ago). I used to not want to talk to anyone. I was extremely introverted (now people probably want me to shut up lol).
They also said, “you have a great personality.”
It really caught me off guard, but in a good way. It was honestly the best compliment I had ever received.
It really warmed my heart because in life all I want is to be the best that I can be. I want to be a positive vibe in other people’s life. I’m glad they’re one of the ones that I am.
I challenge you to compliment someone’s personality. I bet they will love it more than if you complimented their appearance.
