I’m a firm believer that when someone gives you a compliment, you should smile & say “thank you.” That doesn’t mean I always do it, however. Last night Elissa complimented me on my hair (it was pulled back,like you see above), and I started in on this dissertation about how my bangs are too long, I don’t know what to do with it, I think my face looks fatter when my hair is up…you name it, I said it.
I hate it when people do that.
Anyway, I know receiving compliments is an issue for a lot of women (men don’t have this problem AT ALL), as it obviously is for me sometimes. If someone let’s me know she loves my shoes, or my bag, I always say “thank you” because I know how awesome they are. But if it’s more along the lines of “you look great!” it’s harder to accept the compliment. How RIDICULOUS is that? Really. My SHOES and my BAG are awesome, but I’m not? That’s crazy, that BS has to stop. I’m way more awesome than the things I wear (although they definitely enhance my awesome-ness ;)). And so are you.
How do you handle compliments? do you struggle with just saying “thank you?”
Have a good weekend!!!
