5 WHAT’S A RE­CENT COM­PLI­MENT SOME­ONE GAVE YOU THAT CAME AS A PLEAS­ANT SUR­PRISE?

Cosmopolitan (India) - - YOU, YOU, YOU -

Com­pli­ments of­fer you a chance to en­joy a side of your­self that you might have un­in­ten­tion­ally buried, so it’s im­por­tant not to brush them off. “We make judge­ments about our­selves early on, so other peo­ple of­ten have a truer picture for us,” says Bor­chard.

If you are un­sure, ask for a sec­ond opin­ion from a close friend who’ll give you an hon­est opin­ion. “If mul­ti­ple peo­ple see a pos­i­tive qual­ity, it has a real pres­ence in your per­son­al­ity,” says Brit­ten. “Nur­tur­ing it will ex­hil­a­rate you.”
