Have you ever noticed, myself included how when someone gives you a compliment you downplay the compliment as a way not to seem full of yourself? Why is that?
Do you have conversations like this:
Friend- “You look really good, you lost weight!”
Me- “No Way, I’m at an all time high hahahaha.”
Friend- “Your curls are jamming!”
Me- “No, look at this part right here, it is all dry.”
Friend- “I love your shoes!”
Me- “These old things…”
Friend- “Your makeup looks good”
Me- “Oh no, I have on a ton of concealer on , see look at all this discoloration…”
So I started thinking about this, not accepting compliments, especially genuine ones. We all know the other kind like…
Friend- “Oh my goodness, you have lost a TON of weight- What did you do?”
Friend- “Do you ever get your hair DONE?”
Friend- “You should really look into BOTOX, it would take years off you!”
So I’m going to take a moment to share what I love about myself, no apologies.
- I love that I have embraced my natural hair and after many hours and numerous concoctions later, I have it down.
- I’m proud that I have reinvented myself and that I am pursuing my passion- photography.
5. I love meeting new people.
What do you love about yourself? Are you a good friend? A great parent? Are you a natural athlete ? This is your time to share… I’d love to know.
