I Was Paid a Compliment Today

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 65 People

    Today I wore absolutely no make-up.

    .. Very rare for me... I'm addicted to mascara... And normally when I don't wear makeup people think something is wrong... Like I've been crying or I'm sick. But, today no one said anything like that to me and two women I know were telling me how beautiful my complexion is and...

    We Shall See

    I was standing outside with my husband and he interrupts the conversation to say, "I love you so much."  I asked "Why exactly?", just to mess with him. He responded with, "You are just completely perfect."

    Two, Actually.

    I know this girl. She has a model body and face, perfect hair, perfect teeth, gorgeous eyes, and a fun and bubbly personality that immediately attracts people to her like moths to a porch light. I was talking to her, laughing at old memories, discussing making new ones, and...

    I Think It Was..........

    I was foolishly trying to step through the snow and ice in my heels yesterday.   I only wanted to cross the street so I didn't bother putting on my more practical shoes.  As I'm just about to step off the curb a young man comes up behind me and says "I feel...

    So the soap I use for showers is kind of like.

    .cherry candy scented? And the cream I put on my skin is coconut. So now when I'm around people they're just like "something smells like chocolate or cupcakes" and I'm like "yeah that's me." So I'm not sure if being told you smell like chocolate or cupcakes or cookies is a...

    Complexion

    For many women, the ultimate way to be complimented, is have it done, not by a man, but by a woman! (because they are our competition!) So just a bit ago, one of the next door female pharmacisists was staring at my face while I was talking to her. I'm getting nervous...

    A Reason To Smile

    I was paid a compliment yesterday actually and it was quite unexpected. Going to the dentist is hard for me. I have a fear of them for one thing and I always expect the worst. I also think I have an ugly smile and rarely show my teeth in pictures because of that. I take care of...

    It depends on the compliment and who gives me the compliment. I just don't feel much of anything because nothing really happens after one has been made for me.
