Have you ever thought of giving yourself compliments every day? Many people believe there is no sense in it. If you’re one of them, I’m going to persuade you that giving yourself compliments is good for you.
When you wake up, there is no need for negativity because a dark mind will only create a bad day. Start your day with these 8 compliments to keep your spirits up, and you will notice that your life isn’t as hard as it seems.
1. I’m beautiful
This is the first compliment to give yourself in the morning every day. Why? Because many women underestimate themselves and I thought it would be a great compliment to give ourselves in the morning. What do you like about yourself?
It can be internal, such as the sense of humor, or external, such as your smile or the color of your eyes. When you are down on yourself, just choose at least two things that you are proud of. Even if no one notices your beauty, remember, it exists and one day, people around you will notice it!
2. I’m strong
You might have tears in your eyes or scars on your wrists, but you are strong. You’ve gotten through lots of miserable minutes, and you’ve managed to cope with different tough situations. Another compliment to give yourself each morning is that you are a strong and capable person who can cope with the worst things.
I know from personal experience how it’s difficult to stay strong when things go wrong and no one believes in you or no one helps you. But I always remind myself that I’m a strong woman and nothing can bring me down.
3. My life means something
This compliment is highly important, especially for those who can’t find their meaning in life. It’s not possible to know what actually you’re born to do. You might be meant to be a famous actress or meant to raise a big family.
No matter what you’re born to do, you should trust that there’s an important reason behind your existence. You are not useless. You are a beautiful and clever person who will certainly find their place in life.
4. I’m alive
Yes, this may not sound like a good compliment, but indeed it is. While life is tough, dull, and draining, you are still alive and you are living life on a wonderful planet, surrounded by wonderful people. When you are alive, you have lots of amazing opportunities open to you. Just enjoy your life!

5. I’m intelligent
You might not be book smart and perhaps you didn’t get high grades in school and college, but you are brilliant in your own way. You might be more gifted when it comes to knowing celebrity gossip, or remembering sports statistics. All of us have an absolutely different set of knowledge, and all of us are intelligent.
If you don’t consider yourself an intelligent person, you should learn to appreciate yourself. Just because your friend has a well-paid job doesn’t mean they are smarter or happier than you. Money doesn’t make anyone happy!
6. I’m loved
Even if you don’t have a partner, you are still loved. Love comes in many forms. Some people love you romantically while others love you like a daughter or sister. When it comes to affection, never be greedy.
Appreciate sincerely any love you get in your life, and never take it for granted. Love is special, no matter whether this love is given to you by one person or one hundred. Remember it!
If you are absolutely lonely, consider adopting or buying a pet, and you will instantly feel that you are loved. Pet’s love is probably the most sincere!
7. I’m in charge of my own life
This is another wonderful compliment to give yourself every single day. There’s always going to be someone in your life who has control over you, like your mom, dad, teacher, elder sibling, or boss.
But you are in charge of your life, you can do almost everything you want to do, and you can make your own decisions. Don’t let anyone and anything control your life!
8. I’m happy
While there are times when you have to go through difficult situations, you should never forget how happy you are. Happiness is within you, you don’t have to pursue it.
Just decide to be happy, and you will be. I know easier said than done, but give it a whirl and you won’t regret you did.
Every morning smile and remind yourself of how happy and lucky you are. All your problems and troubles will disappear in a jiff!
