Will it save your life?

Quirk of Habit:  Which quirky habit annoys you the most, and what quirky habit do you love — in yourself, or others.

 

I get seriously irked when people feel the need to comment on my appearance.  I know that it is normal for people to do so, but really, if I look amazing today, how bad did I look before today?  I also find the type of “compliments” often reinforce societal stereotypes like I can only look good when I am thinner.  I didn’t get compliments before my weight loss journey.

I read a meme that said: unless I am sitting on your face, my weight is none of your business, or something like that.   It is so true.  I often want to wear a t – shirt that says:

unless you will die in not doing so, please do not compliment my appearance.

In doing so you help yourself since it just upsets me.  I find it a disincentive to continuing, as I am not yet in a place where I can accept a compliment without negative habits kicking in.

I am working on this but I will probably never understand why people have to make any comment on my appearance be that good or bad.

Author:

I was 46 years old when I begun this blog, female and married with a house full of cats (7). My past is littered with the impact of events that happened when I was a teen. Two loves of my life have been nursing and studying. I just completed my Master of Arts: Media Studies endorsement. My blog will be about the things I think about, that might be better served being written rather than squirreled away in my mind festering. It is the meanderings of my mind as I seek to define myself and my world.
