Don’t mistake that word for condiments—you know, as in ketchup, mustard, or mayo.
Condiments are spread over hamburgers and sandwiches.
Compliments are words said in appreciation for something done, spoken, or written.
There are many times that I actually like condiments far better than compliments.
Not sure why that’s the case. But, too often, I really struggle accepting kind words. Do I doubt what is said? Do I doubt their sincerity? Do I feel unworthy?
More than likely, it’s a little of all three things. I’m working at being more gracious when complimented. Just don’t expect overnight changes.
