5 Creative Compliments To Give to Your Friends
What do you say to a friend to lift their spirits or let them know that you value their friendship? Compliments can go a long way to letting someone know that you care, but there are even more powerful benefits to saying nice things to someone.
According to research, the social reward of having something nice said to you or about you enhances your motor skills and improves performance. In fact, the scientists found that the same area of the brain is activated whether a person is rewarded with cash OR a compliment, while other studies showed that recognition is what mattered most to employees when surveyed about how their higher ups can better improve their subordinates’ quality of life. The nicest gift you may be able to give to someone is truly as simple as a few positive, meaningful, and genuine words.
Mark Twain once said, “I can live for two months on a good compliment.” These little gems really can brighten up a person’s mood and have a lasting impact! So without further adieu, here are five compliments that we think are truly meaningful to both give and to receive:
1.You are one of the strongest people I know. I admire and look up to you.
2.Your inside is even more beautiful than your outside. You are a wonderful person through and through, and I am lucky to have you in my life.
3.I love the way you bring out the best in people. You bring out the good and make life sunnier for so many around you!
4.I am a better person because of you. You have taught me so much and inspire my every day.
5.Everything seems brighter when you are around. Even the things that you don’t like about yourself...these make you even more special and interesting. You are more than enough.
