The “May I tell you that you that you’re Wonderful” t-shirt was created to help you connect with people in a meaningful way. Instead of making a statement, it asks for permission to tell someone that they are wonderful.
By asking for permission, you are encouraging a response. Questions create a different dynamic than statements. There is a subconscious inclination to want to answer them. People are also more likely to consider the request personally. If they do, and say “yes you may” or “yes,” or even “how would you know?” then a connection is formed, and a dialogue can begin.
It is important to note that you should avoid responding with a heavily religious response, like “God thinks you are wonderful”,” Instead, you can respond by saying “By giving me permission, I can tell you are brave and curious and open to new ideas and new people. These are all qualities that make a person wonderful.”
