Complimenting Others : Pengertian, Contoh Expressions, dan Contoh Dialognya

 A. Pengertian Complimenting

Dear online learners! Complimenting others adalah memberikan pujian kepada orang lain atas kelebihan yang dimilikinya,  capaian prestasi/kesuksesan/keberhasilan yang diperolehnya. Giving compliments to other people bukan bermaksud untuk mencari simpati dan maksud  tertentu dari orang yang dipujinya, melainkan ingin memberikan pujian yang benar-benar seusai dengan fakta dan kenyataan yang ada.

Selama ini, mungkin ada anggapan bahwa apabila kita memuji seseorang berarti karena ingin mengambil simpati, mencari muka, punya maksud tertentu dan lain sebagainya. Tetapi, giving compliments yang dipelajari dalam artikel ini adalah memuji seseorang (complimenting someone) berdasarkan rasa tulus dan ikhlas berdasarkan kelebihan dan keunggulan yang dimiliki seseorang.

Selain itu, dengan give compliments to someone berarti hal ini juga merupakan “give away” dan sekaligus special gift dari kita kepada orang lain. Begitu juga sebaliknya, compliments bagi yang menerimanya merupakan sebuah hadiah istimewa yang diterimanya. Sang penerima pujian pasti akan senang dan bahagia. Siapapun orangnya pasti akan senang dan bahagia apabila mendapat pujian selagi pujian tersebut sesuai dengan fakta dan kenyataan dan bukan karena mempunyai maksud lain.

Sama halnya dengan congratulating, maka giving compliments to other bukanlah hal sulit dan mahal. Semua orang dapat melakukannya kapanpun dan dimanapun. Giving compliments to others juga free of charge. Memberi pujian sangat penting bagi kita untuk menunjukkan empati dan dorongan agar seseorang menjadi lebih semangat dan berusaha lebih baik lagi.

Semua kita berhak mendapat compliments from someone. Dan semua kita juga sebaiknya saling memberikan pujian sehingga hidup ini akan terasa mempunyai makna karena kita sama-sama mewarnainya. Ada sharing dan caring  dan juga ada take and give sehingga our life is balance.
