Wish You Got More Compliments? Three Ways To Make That Happen
New shoes…new makeup….new dress. You spend the extra twenty minutes to look just right. You walk out to living room and he says:
“We’re late, are you finally ready?”
Isn’t this the same man who told you how beautiful you are every time you went anywhere, even to Home Depot? Do you miss his compliments? Do you miss how he used to look at you?
Well, it is time to take action and get yourself noticed! Here are three action steps that will get you complimented today.
1. Ask for compliments.
This is a radical idea, not for the faint of spiritual heart. Start your day asking the Universe, the Divine or whatever you call your higher power to send you people who will compliment you. It is crazy how this works. You ask and then just watch what happens as you go about your business. Try it. Getting compliments always feels terrific and they don’t have to just come from your man!
2. Compliment yourself.
This may sound a little loony to you, don’t blame you for that, but it really works. How can we expect compliments from our men when we don’t even appreciate our own looks. Tell yourself how hot you look and do it outloud. Amazing how a week of this will feed your need to feel great about yourself!
3. Compliment random strangers.
Think how great it feels when someone notices your new haircut or shoes. Plan on complimenting three strangers a day on something you admire. Watch their reaction, see if you catch any delight or self consciousness.
Think of giving compliments as planting seeds. The more you plant, the more luscious fruit you will reap. After one week of your new complimenting habit, re-evaluate exactly how you want your man to respond to your fashion choices and how you look. Then tell him kindly and directly how his words make you feel. If you don’t need all your complimenting from him, he just may surprise you!
