Being healthy is much more important than being thin
Complimenting someone on the way they look is not actually a positive thing. I always thought it was a nice thing to do but apparently I was wrong. It's unhelpful and has an adverse effect.
And yet, it's something that women do all the time. When two women meet, one will invariably complement the other's shoes, coat, hair, lipstick…we can't help ourselves, it's like a knee-jerk reaction.
But it seems that complimenting other women on their appearance is unhelpful.
