Sometimes I spot things unappealing, but instead of dwelling on them, I like to park my negative thoughts to focus on things I do like, such as art or scrabble! When something offensive occurs I compartmentalize it to move on, searching for the niceties. It can be difficult when there is such a barrage of negativity constantly streaming online.
I can gauge a persons character when they present an insincere compliment! That kind of character scares me, since they're more interested in being liked than sincere. Or perhaps they're trying to be kind with their fib! That kind of deception is not me. I find it hard to trust those handing out fake compliments! It makes me wonder what other deception they're feeding me.It's not necessary to fib about things less appealing because there's usually something to admire about a person or situation. Hone in on what you like, flatter them with that instead. Some how it lightens the offensive parts! However I caution you omitting the unattractive parts, or sweeping them under the carpet when making a love connection. Since those less attractive features often double in size into gnarly bits with teeth over time. Just sayin....

My daughter often says." what? what?" as she catches me admiring her lovely face, fresh nail polish or the way her body moves like a dancer with a pony tail bobbing behind. Don't assume people focus on the bad bits, because some people prefer to hone in on the good ones! Often it's the whole picture of a person that tells the real story anyway. Even the most attractive people with moody whiny attitudes become less appealing, and annoying. Where as the plain jovial ones with a twinkle in their eye, a sense of humour, and open heart can be the most alluring! Looking for the good things where they aren't as evident is a beautiful habit. If you need to share the bad experiences, marry it with a positive good aspect too. It makes the story seem less miserable. Ask yourself what five things you liked about your day so far?
