Battle of the Compliment

100% Worth it
0% Not sure
0% Not worth it

Submitted by:

Spend a few minutes with a close family member or friend (someone who knows you very well) and throw compliments at each other to boost self-esteem. Try to make the compliments a little detailed and not too superficial such as 'you are so pretty' 'you are so smart' instead focus on actual things that person has achieved so that they realise you are not just being nice but there are awesome things to back up their compliments. This is such a simple and sweet method to help yourself and someone else boost confidence and self-love naturally.

What You'll Need

  • A friend or someone close to you that you trust.

What You'll Do

  • Throw compliments back and forth with a friend.
  • If you can, look at each other straight in the eyes as you give each other the compliments.
  • Remember to be as specific as possible to that particular individual.
  • This will show that you pay attention and will help boost confidence naturally.

I tried this with a close friend and found it worked really well. The joy of doing it with someone you know really well is that they know what your anxieties are, what you are nervous about and so they can help address those particular issues by throwing a compliment at you to do with those topics.
