WHEN A COMPLIMENT IS WELL MEANT

- When a compliment is not sincere it is called flattery. Why do people resort to flattery, it has an ulterior motive to gain positive points from the person who was given flattery.

- I have a keen sense of knowing how to differentiate flattery and compliment. Compliments have lasting and strong positive effects while flattery is rejected the minute it was released.

- I have this officemate of mine who's generous at giving compliments. It's nice because the way she says it, it sounds sincere. I tend to be believe that it is. She would compliment my attire from time to time, and she would say how I can match my accessories with my wardrobe for the day. There are more valuable compliments from my other officemates, but I'm too embarrassed to write it all here. LOL Anyways, no matter how shallow or small the compliment it may seems, it makes me happy. Not only it makes me happy, the positivity is such a good feeling that it inspires me to show a better self.

That is true~ you'll feel it when a person says it, right? Whether the person is sincere or not, you'd know deep inside.

Not only it makes me happy, the positivity is such a good feeling that it inspires me to show a better self.

The fact that it inspires you to show a better self is inspiring! ♥

I secretly roll my eyes if it's insincere. LOL
