Compliments are expressions of praise or admiration and we’ve probably received them and given them to someone or the other. Often compliments are centered on one’s physical appearance, body, clothing, hair makeup, and style. The best thing about compliments is that while you give positive compliments to others, it gives a quick ego boost and the most resounding and heartfelt compliments lead to focus on your character or the innate inner qualities you possess which make you unique. Receiving a compliment that is expressed with sincerity always ramps up your “feel good” meter.
