Do you reciprocate Compliments?

2 min read

We always have this set of people in our lives if not for anything are always there to compliment us. 

There’s nothing we do that could go wrong in their eyes. Once they see us, they are either gushing over how we are dressed, our body shape, or they bombard us with so many questions just to hear us talk. Not only that they think so highly of us, they equally see us as their friends. Sometimes their compliments can be tiring but they make us smile anyway. 

A LIST OF 100 COMPLIMENTS YOU CAN GIVE RIGHT NOW

This set of people can be found living in your street or most times make up the fraction of domestic staff, office secretary, coworker, friendly neighbor…definitely not a close party but have access to talk with you at the bare minimum.  They see you and the next thing is “I like your hair”, “Madam I like this your cloth o”, “Wow you look so beautiful today.”, “You look tired, have you eaten today?”… so much concern you sometimes wonder where he/she channels such guts from.

Complements are like mini orgasms for your brain

READ: WHY HOARD A COMPLIMENT?

How do you give back such concerns? For me sometimes, I try as much as possible to ask them how they are doing too, I try to reciprocate the compliments even when I am not tickled. Let us take for example the cleaner at my workplace. There are times where she makes a new hair, wears a cool attire, etc. although it might not match my taste but considering her level, I make myself sensitive enough to know that it means a lot to her and so I should give her a compliment. Mehn! you should see the joy in her eyes whenever I do so lol😀. 

Truth is I try as much as possible to compliment anyone who compliments me, especially often. No matter how undermining their efforts may be to my taste,  I feel they merit. Also, knowing that It’s really difficult for most of us especially in this dispensation to air our admiration about a person’s outfit or what have you, it just makes more sense to give compliments to those who are cheerful in giving it.

So do you reciprocate compliments?

Yes I reciprocate. I don’t even wait to receive a compliment first. Once I notice you and you’re looking fly, I’ll immediately drop my compliments without thinking twice.

It’s not about giving compliments though.. the sincerity and genuiness matters a whole lot…like the igbo’s will popular say “osi kwa gi nobi?” Meaning, is it from your heart?😁 If reverse is the case, then it’s just mere flattery oo…
