‘It Can Change Your En­tire Day’

Look (UK) - - LOOK LIFE -

Says Look’s Fea­tures and En­ter­tain­ment Edi­tor Giselle Wain­wright ‘it’s easy to un­der­es­ti­mate how far one flat­ter­ing re­mark can go. But af­ter a pretty dif­fi­cult year, i’ve learnt just how much dif­fer­ence the odd com­pli­ment can re­ally make to some­one’s mood, self-es­teem and gen­eral well­be­ing. com­pli­ment­ing a friend’s out­fit or com­ment­ing on a col­league’s new hair might seem easy – ef­fort­less, even – but dur­ing my low­est days it was these kinds of sim­ple com­ments that used to give me a boost and get me through. i re­mem­ber one spe­cific day i came to work feel­ing aw­ful, hav­ing had the worst sleep the night be­fore. Af­ter our morn­ing meet­ing, one of the Look team men­tioned that she thought i’d “killed it” in the dis­cus­sions and it just made me feel so much more con­fi­dent. even the sim­plest of com­pli­ments can go such a long way.’
