It's okay to give compliments. It's okay to tell somebody that they did a good job. It's okay to hold the door for someone. It's okay to be proud of your friends. It's okay to be proud of your kids. It's okay to be proud of your boss and bosses is okay to be proud of their workers, of their employees. In a natural evolution, sometimes when there's things going on within us or we didn't get told by our parents or our friends that you're doing a good job, that's great work, I appreciate you. Then we have a hard time and this is a leadership skill, right? We have a hard time telling our employees, coworkers, friends that they are doing or have done a great job and you appreciate them.
Don't let it be hard to figure out what's going on with you, where you don't automatically think to tell someone that they're doing a great job, that you're proud of them and this is grown up kids, this is what it looks like to be a leader in your home, a leader in your relationship. That's really all. I'm not going to harp on this. It's okay to tell someone that they look cute in that dress or those are nice shoes. You don't have to like, I don't understand and maybe that's just because that's not the kind of person I am but I don't understand the benefit of withholding compliments. I don't understand the benefit of withholding praise because that's just not who I am. I immediately go to compliment because compliment, this is the kind of testimony, those compliments are not meant for me, they're for the other person. In this world, we can at least share a compliment. You can at least let someone know that they've done a good job. At least let people know that you're proud of them.
