Day 26: What Is Your Favorite Compliment To Give And Receive, And Why?
I love to compliment other people on their smile or their overall look, “Oh, look at you! You look great!” or “You’re lookin’ spiffy!” What I am complimenting them on is their presence. The way you carry yourself, your confidence, is the best outfit you can rock.
Personally, I am not the best at receiving compliments, but I have to admit that it is good to hear one especially when I am having a bad day. When I hear someone tell me I have a beautiful smile or that my outfit is cute, it feels good. Lately, though, I have been struggling with compliments about my weight loss. It’s not because I think anyone has a malicious intent when complimenting me on my weight loss, rather, I feel their is just too much emphasis on weight in our society’s beauty standards.
I was just as pretty, cute, beautiful, and all that way before I shed some of those pounds. But, the way I carry myself has changed. I am more confident in this body, and I respect it.
