Don’t Knock It Til You’ve Tried It #4

#4 Compliment a stranger

This is one of the most fulfilling little challenges you can do, so I highly recommend giving this one a go. Challenging yourself to do this has the greatest payoff and ripple effect, as you see people’s faces light up when you unexpectedly compliment them. As a great Smiths’ lyric once went “It takes guts to be gentle and kind”, so as hard or weird as it may seem to pop out of the blue and compliment someone, it’s 100% worth it to see their expression and surprise at receiving kindness from a stranger.
