Don’t we LOVE compliments!
They just make us feel OH-SO-GOOOOD and our day EPIC AMAZING!
But then I started thinking, is this really HEALTHY?
Depends on your mindset, so let’s dig deep and find out!
1. Do you become OVER THE MOON excited when you get a compliment?
Wow, I can’t believe I got a compliment! ME! No way! Wow, I am BEAUTIFUL? WOW! Really?!?!
2. Are you longing for compliments?
Wondering…why haven’t I gotten complimented today? Is this shirt not flattering? Maybe I AM ugly? MAN…today SUCKS!
If you’re having these thoughts, then you’re running low on the love fuel. You don’t feel seen, wanted, desirable, valid, and just EPIC AWESOME!
This is NOT okay!
You don’t need others to compliment you to help raise your love fuel. You can totally do this YOURSELF <3
Think about it, who is going to LOVE YOU better than YOURSELF? NO ONE..no one should be able to OUT LOVE YOU.
Yup, I am a huge advocate of being FULL OF YOURSELF. Because guess what, you’re EPIC AWESOME! A compliment shouldn’t make your day. It should just be a “surprise” cherry you get on the top of your ice cream sundae :)
I LOVE Latin women and their confidence. They KNOW they are beautiful and compliments don’t phase them or make their day. They are FULL of themselves in the most loving and beautiful way possible.
Let’s stop seeing it as BAD and start fueling our own love tank.
Tell yourself everyday in the mirror, “I love you” and how EPIC AWESOME you are. Before you know it, your body will start to burst with this loving energy and compliments aren’t needed anymore. Let me know in the comments how this works for you!
