One of my biggest pet peeves is when I’m trying to spread love and positivity to my friends or any women I see with a compliment, and they completely reject it.
Me: you look pretty!
Them: Ew no, I’m gross
Me: I love your outfit
Them: are u kidding? It makes me look fat
Me: i love you hair!
Them: It’s so oily, I need to wash it.
JUST TAKE THE COMPLIMENT!!
Why is that so hard? It seems like women are conditioned to put themselves down and find every single flaw. What’s wrong with just taking the compliment, and just saying “thank you”. Even if you think you look bad, just accept what the person is saying and try to believe it. Self deprecation is so common in women and it’s such a shame to me. It’s not bad to take a compliment and FEEL GOOD about yourself and your appearance!
It’s actually very important for anyone’s self esteem. Ladies, please! Try to embrace compliments and speak more positively about yourself. If anything… do this, for me – because it really pisses me off! LOL
If I go out of my way to give you a compliment, it’s because I mean it, and you should believe that. There is no point to try to deny it. Take it in and say “wow, thank you so much”. Don’t make excuses for what someone is telling you, and making them believe it’s not true. If someone says you’re pretty, it’s because it IS TRUE! You should know that and believe that!
Stop trying to tear yourself down every chance you get. Speak highly of yourself always, and believe people when they tell you how amazing you are because you feel that way too! The next time someone gives you a compliment JUST TAKE IT ! – & start to see what others see. xo
