THE GREATEST COMPLIMENT I EVER RECEIVED

A compliment can be compared to medication for the soul and a mood lifter that has the power to transform our mood since we tend to feel joy when we hear comments from others. Receiving praise and compliments from others is undoubtedly one of the finest things anyone would love to experience.

Looking back on my life experience over the years, I can see that I have received a lot of compliments. Each one has had a similar effect on me and my attitude throughout those times, and the impact has been nothing short of joy, even though I often blush when I hear such kind words.

I will thus be writing about the various compliments I've previously received, from whence they came, and how I felt about them today in response to the topic selected by the hive learners community. I'll also provide some insight into which compliments have personally meant the most to me throughout time.

FROM A FRIENEMY

I once wrote about a woman friend who kept bugging me to satisfy her urge for sex on a particular day for reasons that are best known to me. However, I declined her request, and a friend of mine who saw how she was acting and wanted to take advantage of her ultimately gave in to her demands, which essentially destroyed both of their lives.

That ruins their life because they had sex that day, which led to them becoming parents at an early age. A few years after that incident, I can recall running into both of them on various points, and they couldn't help but compliment my ability to refrain from having sex while their inability to control their urge completely wrecks their life.

That compliment made me proud, although I felt bad for them, but I can't help but imagine how my life would have been assuming I was the one who fell into the trap my friend fell into, which made him a father and a husband at a very tender age.

FROM FORMER EMPLOYEE

The praise I got from a previous job is one of the remarks I read and appreciate. I recall that I asked for a pay raise before I left my job at the company, but they declined. This, along with other factors, led to my departure, but only one month later, I can recall getting a call from my previous employer pleading with me to return.

Although I decline their offer, his comments to me on that particular day made me feel unique. I said, "Victor, it appears that you have become indispensable at our company since we have been unable to find a substitute who will give our job everything I they have like you did, Please return, and we'll revise your pay to any level you like." Because of that assertion, I nearly decided differently, but in the end I declined the offer.

Moving on to the last compliment for today, which also happens to be the compliment I deem to be the greatest among all the compliments I've received in my life.

FROM MY BROTHER

My younger brother, who had spent more than six months in the hospital, turned to face me from the ill bed he was in as I hurried in to help him tidy up the mess surrounding him before the nurse made a scene without taking into account his predicament. He gave me a glance and remarked, "You are the best person I have ever met, Brother Victor. Beyond my comprehension, you have shown me acts of love and selflessness. If I had the opportunity to choose a sibling in my next life, I would always choose you."

That statement literally brought me to tears, but I tried to hide it by comforting him instead and telling him that everyone else who wasn't able to stay with him during this difficult time cares about him and would have done the same. However, deep down, I feel proud of myself, and thanks to God, he is now healthy and fine.

Thanks for reaching my post; it was inspired by the Hive Learners community feature topic, and you can read through Kronia's post to get information on all the requirements needed to write as well.

Sometimes it is out self-discipline that will prompts the compliment because if you are not self-discipline am sure you will fall into that girl's trap like your friend did

The most greatest compliment I had was from my work because I love my work so much

You showed excellent self-control by quitting your job when there was no chance that you could find another one right away.

Your brother will never forget the compassion and kindness that you displayed toward him, and he will continue to pray for you.
I appreciate you for sharing this excellent concept

The last one got me emotional, I believe your brother is doing great now.

Being able to resist some silly situation like the first compliment you got from your friendnemies tells how disciplined you are. I am glad you didn't fall into the bait, being disciplined pays a lot

Yea my brother is now fine, and I'm excited he's, it was a great experience to get such compliment from him.

And for the lady I'm grateful my self discipline paid off, assuming I wasn't, it would have been a terrible experience for my life thereafter.

Your first compliment is one of the things that we men lack these days, we can’t control our desire for sex and as a matter of that, it puts us into problems that we did not want be in. It’s great that you are able to control yours as well. Keep it up.
