Art of Giving Compliments8:00 PM
You know who is excellent at giving compliments? This lady. When she gives you a compliment she isn't just praising you, she is practically making you look at yourself in a new-bright-light. She creates magic with her words. You feel so much better about yourself. You cannot help but float between the clouds. Any time I try to give her a compliment and feel, "Yeah, Tanvi. You did a decent job at it today!" she comes back with an even more articulate and heartwarming response. I practically have given up on
Getting back to me getting compliments: I have recently been called Brave - Bold - Fearless, by several people, which made me feel A) Awesome and B) that I actually appreciate those adjectives more than Pretty - Lovely - Beautiful and the likes. While the later category does make feel nice but a part of me is always unconvinced. I do not associate those adjectives with myself. As mentioned before, "Beauty, is but supported by opinion." I think I am decent looking, I have an O.K. (ever-changing) dressing sense and I can manage to carry myself well. But I can never really take those phases/words seriously. Of course they sound lovely when I get them, but they don't make my insides go, "Yeah! Baby!" - Y'know what I mean?
On the other hand, Brave - Bold - Fearless - now we are talking. I can totally associate myself with these words. I do not feel the need to convince myself or justify these compliment (to my brain). I can whole heartedly accept them. Scratch that - I can own them. They are in fact my favorite-kinda-compliments.
