People wonder why I give so many compliments out to strangers. I’m not being fake and I’m not looking for people to like me. But if I pass someone and I like something, I say it. “Love those shoes!” or “Great hair!” or “Wow your eyes are beautiful!”….why? Because life is hard and this world can be a shitty place, and people are mean. You never know how much those few words mean to someone, you never know what hell they may be going through; and when you put positivity out there into the universe YOU yourself become a happier person. It’s hard to be nice and be miserable yourself. It’ll reflect from the outside in. I’m telling you random compliment giving will change your life; and maybe someone else’s, too. — Jordan Sarah Weatherhead

      Right commenter Wow Man…a person with an appreciative heart gives light and sunshine to the people around him.her

      Elation of heavily baggaged feelings because of a keen observance of things that need to be appreciated though how little the thing may be…

      Count me in to be real, not fake.

    wonderful ! i do this too, will do it oftener, after reading your words. smiles, too, can be a way to say—“i see you. you matter. we may be different ages, races, genders, but i’m sending you goodwill.”

      Agree commenter rosie, goodwill matters much no matter what, where and when.

    Sometimes it’s not so good idea to cut the distance through such insight.I believe it’s a matter of inner respondation to a feeling that the opposite aquire, but you have to be respectful too and to set boundaries on such behaviour.I mean, there are still innocent people there left, I believe, but sometimes one can take a life-changing decision moved from that.

      Hmmm..you might mean truer and deeper friendship commenter Petya? The closer the friendship is, the more a person can give compliments to the other which truly help boost morale especially in times of sadness….despite distance.

    That is very true. When you say someting positively to somebody, it makes me happy, when I see a warm smile coming from their heart to me back, because they had get lucky for a moment. I am happy, too, then.
