    i am still glowing from my art class today.

    i am in ap studio art, which means there is a very high standard that we are held to. i went up for my critique, trembling and full of fear. i braced myself for a storm of criticism that could very possibly take the only shred of confidence i had left away from me. on the...

    Compliments Feel Amazing.

    Compliments feel amazing. They really raise one's self esteem, and can make one realize something good about themselves, and that others notice this goodness within the person. It was a typical day today, I went downstairs to the pool in my condo for a swim, and there were a few...

    I Walk Like A Model...

    I live in a fairly active community. The stores are in walking distance, so instead of driving I walk. I walk/strut with so much confidence, as if I'm on the runway (if only I had as much as I pretend to have *sigh*) and the boys always give me compliments. I'm especially at my...

    Today was my birthday.

    My section leader for marching messaged me and said,"You look beautiful btw." That was the best present i received today. I've been given so much love today from friends and family. I'm very blessed to have wonderful people surrounding me. Especially my EP friends. :)

    I admit it. I am a total compliment hound.

    Not just here but in real life too. I am sure there's some psychological reason behind it (Isn't there always), but I can't get enough! My looks, my brains, my general personality - I get a compliment and I'm silly happy about it!

    Whispers Of Healing To The Heart

    I love getting compliments,

    but I'm horrible at accepting them. I have to debate them, to deflunk them. Like, someone said something to me today that touched me, it touched me deep inside and lit me up with pride and joy. "You are proof that there are angels among us. And I'm honored to have met one...

    I'm not often told that I'm pretty.

    I like myself, and if I dare to say it, I think that I'm aesthetically pleasing in the wideness of my eyes, the pinkness of my cheeks, the way that my mouth is always stretched into a smile of some sort. I'm told that when I feel passionate about something, that passion can be...

    I do actually love my lips :)

    when I was younger I used to feel so insecure about myself, now I've just accepted that I am who I am :D if I didn't except it, I'd probably be a miserable, unhappy depressed, overweight sad woman. What do you love about yourself?

    Good Compliments

    Compliments are a formal and respectful recognition. This means a lot to me when I receive them. In my childhood, compliments were rare. People keeps telling me that I am not good enough and careless. I took them in, and cried myself to sleep. I was being mistreated, and no one...

    I always get compliments,

    and I love that. However I feel like whenever I a give a compliment and the person has no compliments for me it gets really awkward and it really shouldn't because it's okay. I just like to make people's day!😄
