Day 13: Thank You

13. “I bet if Britney Spears knew you, 2008 would have gone differently.”

One of the best pieces of advice I’ve ever heard is this:

When somebody tells you that you look nice or that you’re beautiful, have nice eyes, are clever – whatever, you should always say “Thank you” and accept the compliment.

I overheard a friend telling someone we knew the above years ago, and it’s stuck with me ever since.

Thank you.

Not “Really? Are you mad?”, or “This old thing? It cost me a penny!”. Or any other negative retort, just “Thank you”.

Try to accept the nice things people say to you because they mean them.

I know it’s easier said than put into action though. I have to catch myself every single time but it’s important I think to realise the difference between self-deprecation and putting yourself down.

Nobody should ever feel the need to put you down, least of all yourself.

You are fucking fabulous, accept it.
