While speaking with a friend today we touched base on some very interesting topics. Why is it so hard for a person; particularly a woman to compliment another?
Women by nature are very competitive. This I know. As a losing male competitor you are more likely to say “good game” where as with a woman you will have a rival for life. This is not in every case, but generally speaking women take it far more personally.
I am not trying to make this a battle of the sexies. My point is not the gender, but intent. One not being able to give, as well as receive a compliment is a reflection of one self.
How you view yourself will impact on great scales how you perceive the world around you.
You need to be the example; lead by example. Next time you see something you like, SAY IT! It takes nothing from you to do so.
