Today is Compliment Day, and wow is this not only the day we need, but the day we deserve. In this day and age, the ugliness of humanity has been amplified. Social media and instant communication has given rise to a mean-spirited, hyper-aggressive style of communication. Seriously. have you ever seen a single human being talk like people do online, face to face with another person, and get away with it? No! These people treat other people horribly because they’re hiding behind a screen and have limited anonymity. Then you have the trolls, the people who only live to insult, demean, and bully others. 


That’s not to say that the internet is a place of just meanness. There are plenty of people out there giving love and support to complete strangers who are going through issues. The internet is a great place to find out you are not alone. It’s a great place for family and friends to stay in touch over distances. 


It’s also a place where you can order custom t-shirts from the comfort of your own home. Next time you design a custom tee online on make sure you put a positive spin on it. Upgrade your wardrobe with a positive quote, or a compliment. You can compliment another person and give the shirt as a gift, or just compliment yourself. Let the shirt serve as a self esteem boost during hard times, or just the grind of every day life. 


Whatever choices you make with your wardrobe, here’s one choice every single one of us needs to make on our own: treat others with kindness and respect. Try this: every single day, make it a point to give at least one compliment. No superficial, disingenuous compliments either. Give a genuine, heartfelt compliment to at least one person every day. You never know just what kind of impact kind words at just the right time can make. If more people would do this, we would all be so much happier.
