[Day 15]: What's the best compliment you've ever received?
The Best compliment I ever received came from a complete stranger. I know that sounds odd, especially considering my boyfriend compliments me all the time, as do friends and family; but I think that’s why the compliment has stuck in my head for so long. It was last year and it was from a girl who was in a tutorial with me and she said “I really like your jacket, it looks awesome”. It’s quite simple and there was nothing special about the compliment but just that feeling of having a compliment come out of no where, I didn’t have to fish for it (like I’ve been known to do sometimes), I didn’t put any extra effort into getting all dressed up for the purpose of being complimented, and I was basically, just sitting there in whatever clothes I had found that morning and that comment turned my day around.
I think sometimes we forget to make those nice comments to people just for the sake of being honest and making someone happy. I know my boyfriend gets frustrated when I don’t accept compliments because usually they make me uncomfortable, but at the end of the day, a few nice works can really change a persons day from being subpar/average to being shinier and happier.
