Women, men need compliments. A few words that build up your man will last forever. It'll mean the world to him. So, what are you doing right now? Is your man sitting next to you? Lean over, and give that man of yours a compliment.
Somehow my wife, Alicia, knows exactly what to say and when to say it. One day, Alicia and I were sitting outside on our back deck. Afternoon. Summer time. Sun was out. We were in the shade. I made a couple margs. We were just sitting back. Chillaxin'.
My wife leans over and says, "You done good, babe. You done real good."
I knew exactly what she meant. And it meant everything to me.
Her compliment was totally unexpected. She didn't say something nice after arguing; she didn't say something nice during some some expensive vacation; she didn't say something nice to coax me into doing something around the house. No. She said it when we were just chill and relaxed. It was authentic and sincere. And I often think about those words, particularly in times when I'm not feeling all that great.
Her words get me going! You know what I mean? Nudge, Nudge, wink, wink.
Women, say some words of affirmation to your man. Say it soon. Right now. He probably really needs to hear it. Tell him that he's doing a pretty good job at being a husband, father, provider, and spiritual leader.
Men need to hear that we're doing a good job. My advice to women is: Compliment your man right now.
