Today is Day 11, and the topic for this entry is:
Day 11: Something people seem to compliment you the most on.
I think that the majority of compliments that I have gotten in my life have revolved around my hair. Of course, a lot of those compliments came with strange people putting their strange hands in my hair. I didn’t really like that part. I think that part of why I used to hate being a redhead was the amount of attention that my hair seemed to draw in. I didn’t want to be noticed for being different. I wanted to blend in and even at a young age, I knew that red hair was unusual, so the attention made me uncomfortable.
Other things that I’ve been compliment on quite a bit are my eyes and nose. My eyes are something that I understand why people like them. They’re kind of big, but not freakishly so, and the coloring is different. I like my eyes. (Please note that I like my hair these days, too.) My nose, though, I think is extremely odd looking. It not only looks strange in general, but it is one of those features that I have that doesn’t seem to match up with anyone else in my family. When I was little, it was cute and button-y. Now, it just looks like an overgrown baby nose.
Positive body image will never be something I have, I guess.
