Compliments Build Self-Esteem
(Los Angeles, CA)
Build your confidence
To receive a compliment is nice, but it is not always easy for some to accept.
To give a compliment is somewhat easier than receiving.
In the field of work I do, I make it a point to compliment the residents. Whether it's for good grades the children have, a great picture they may have drawn, or the great help they are in helping their mother.
A lot of the time the children tend to except compliments well.
The ladies I work with have come from a place where their self-esteem has been damaged. To be part of helping in rebuild their confidence and life is a great feeling. (It actually builds my self-esteem)
Just the basic daily accomplishments that they complete are recognized and I compliment them for a good job done. There is excitement in them that has not been there for a long time. It gives them confidence and they realize that they can do good and they can accomplish their goals whatever it may be, big or little it all matters.
It encourages them to set more goals and now their self-esteem is growing. So I believe compliments do help build someone's self-esteem. I see it everyday and it's awesome!
