You look great! You’ve lost weight! Your dress is fabulous! I love your hair! Compliments – who’d believe them! Until recently I refused to accept them, didn’t believe them, and they were usually met with, oh I’m so bloated or I’ve lots of weight yet to loose, or this old thing, or it needs a good wash! To be honest compliments aren’t something that were thrown my way very often ever, I do remember as a child getting them but they were more comments ‘Oh you’re very tall’, Oh we’d need to put a brick on your head to stop you growing’, ‘Oh you’re very pale’ were among a few that stuck with me for life – I spent years slouching as a result and more years fake tanning, applying make up that was too dark or telling people that no, I was not sick, its just my complexion!
