Giving compliments is a great way to improve someone’s day, make a friend, build a relationship, improve someone’s confidence or just feel good about spreading joy wherever you go.

But giving compliments seems to be a lot easier than taking them for most people; in fact, there is how we should respond to a compliment and how most people actually do it.

In today’s lesson, I share 4 real-life examples of compliments with how we should respond and what you might actually hear. Here are the situations you’ll learn about:

✨A compliment from a friend on your clothing
✨A compliment from a colleague at work
✨A compliment from another mom on your child’s behavior
✨A compliment from a stranger
