when i read it i thought of my friends mom. i remember writing in my journal once that she gave the “weird compliments” because they were different than “your hair looks so cute” or “i love your shoes” (don’t get me wrong, those are nice to hear too) but she’d always say things like, “i love the way you’re always so willing to help” or “i love that you always smile and make eye contact when you talk to people” but they did make me feel good. and i remember them.
once in high school drew told said, “you’re so nice vanessa. one day people will write songs about you.”
best compliment ever.
what’s the best compliment you’ve received that wasn’t about something physical/superficial?
note:. i didn’t mean to sound all braggy… no one’s writing songs about me ;)
