I love to give compliments.
I will totally stop some random person to tell them I really like their shirt or they smell really good.
I don’t take compliments as easily.
In fact, it took years before I could accept one gracefully.
(It’s actually a very important skill.)
The weirdest one I ever got (several times actually) was that I have nice feet.
I remember the first time I heard it.
I was 11. My best friend brought over a new friend. When I answered the door, I was barefoot. The new friend noticed my feet and said they were perfect feet and I could be a foot model. I mumbled a thanks and stepped on my own feet trying to hide them.
It was years before I heard it again.
But then I started hearing it all the time.
I’ve accepted it now. I think it’s funny. I even “enhanced” one of my feet with a small simple tattoo of my sun sign.
(That would be a Virgo sign.)
What’s the weirdest compliment you’ve been given?
Hugs and stuff,
