31 Compliments to Give Yourself Everyday of the Month


Are you someone who easily compliments others with no expectations in return? Kinda rewarding to make people feel good and comfortable in their own skin right? While it’s nice to make family, friends or even strangers smile, you can’t neglect personal happiness either.

Complimenting others is an easy job for me; in fact, I used to do it too much. I mean well and every word is genuine but less is more. I never want my words to become meaningless to the receiver, which introduced a new revelation.

You have to be fearless in loving yourself.

Although it’s rewarding to make others feel good, I found it difficult to compliment myself because of my modesty. Being modest is a sweet characteristic but it does hold you back from reaching full potential. Excelling to life’s next level means I need self-awareness. Hmm…how do you become more confident in yourself? 🤔

What does self-love mean to you? (Sweater from H&M)

Confidence begins with personal appreciation by taking time to understand your heart and upgrading your way of thinking. Adopting what I like to call, a private selfish attitude. What is a private selfish attitude? It’s the mentality of being selfish by putting yourself first without overpowering others to prove your point. The great thing about this method is that you don’t need to tell anyone you’re being selfish. No verbal announcement to family and friends, just shift your way of thinking and start modifying your behavior.

She looks in the mirror and says ‘hello beautiful‘ 365 times a year.

Let me explain, a selfish attitude is only viewed negatively when bragging about your accomplishments to peers in a ‘put-down’ way to make yourself feel greater. We all can’t stand a bragger or a person who professes their achievements with the “in your face” attitude. While the “bragger” overdoes it, I’ll admit, sometimes we need to boast and applaud our accomplishments, just not to impress others but for ourselves…hence the private selfish attitude.

Selfishness is sometimes necessary as long as you’re not hurting people. Example, if you’re tired and your bestie asks you for a favor, don’t feel bad to say, “No.” They’ll respect you for taking time to take care of yourself. Plus, no one wants someone to do something for them without a cheerful heart. It’s hard to appreciate a good deed from a person when they have a bad attitude and sometimes that attitude may stem from one not feeling respected, which is why is essential to learn how to respect yourself even when others don’t. 

Getting involved with yourself through journaling is a nice way to filter out strengths and weaknesses. Check out these cute prompt notebooks from Amazon:

Another way I like to practice a private selfish attitude is through daily affirmations. Positive reminders keep me prepared for unplanned situations by restoring my faith. Faith in God about the way he made me pushes me towards living my best life. I know reaching those ultimate goals will happen with constant reminding of where I’m going in life and not mentally living in my circumstances.

Affirmations boost confidence, encourage happy moods and send positive vibes to uplift the spirit.

Can’t depend on others to encourage you. Don’t ignore the good qualities in yourself and don’t be afraid to flatter your successful moments. Start celebrating everything, even the small things. Applaud your achievements even if is something as simple as swapping out your cinnamon bun for a juicy red apple.

    I love these compliments. I also saw on pinterest to write an affirmation a week with lipstick on the mirror or just a sticky note for a daily reminder. Definitely need to add one of these to my list! I especially love this quote, ]
    You have to be fearless in loving yourself.

      I really like the gesture of writing on the mirror with lipstick, so girly and powerful!


  3. Hey Natonya @varietytales here from twitter. Great post, it was simple and easy to read! I believe everyone should be complimenting themselves everyday. My favorite affirmation from your post is “I believe in the best of things.”, I translated it as being positive and only expecting the best things in life. What I do to boost my confidence is I challenge myself on things I may have my doubts about. Again, great post! Keep up the good work.

    I feel like you wrote this just for me! 😉 In all seriousness, I love this, and I definitely need to take this on board and put it into action. Will be making a note of these and using them to give myself a boost. Thank you!!


  5. Stacie says:

    This is wonderful! I always find myself complimenting others, people actually laugh at me about it because I can walk into a room and just walk round complimenting everyone but I just think it makes someones day so if you’re thinking it in your head then why not!
    I never find myself being self-complimentary though and this post is super inspiring. Feel like I should print it out and stick it to my mirror 🙂 xx

    Great post.


  9. Oh my gosh I love this so, so much. I’m still trying to mend my relationship with myself but I find that when the morning started right, then the whole day seems a little brighter! I personally connected to ‘No rush to get things done, I’ll get to it when I get to it” because I am incredibly impatient and tend to make huge promises to myself to get lots of work down, and feel sad when I don’t accomplish everything.


    1. justnatonya says:

      I’m working on not making such large to-do lists for myself and then rush to get everything done. It’s nice to set goals but they need to be realistic and doable. I’m happy you enjoyed this post Lizzie ❤


  10. Lorna says:

      I’m so appreciative that you liked this post Lorna. I find smiling brightens a cloudy day, sounds cheesy but smiling is powerful and uplifting, so I try to find something amazing to smile about everyday 🙂


  11. Yeah, good points. I am totally guilty of not complimenting myself, but I am extremely good at critiquing myself …
    Thanks for the reminder to start complimenting myself instead! It will take some time, but even small steps in the right direction count, right? 🙂

    I love this post!!! ❤️ You’re so right with everything, we should start celebrating our successes no matter how small they are, we deserve to feel good and be proud of what we accomplish. I love those daily affirmations too, I like the one where you tell yourself today’s gonna be a good one, it really changes how you feel if you start of saying positive things about the day ahead!
