Women are funny...

Okay, I am a woman...and I am at work one of my colleagues came in dressed in the fabulous outfit. This great brown and white polka-dot dress and she dressed it up with red pumps and a red necklace. After saying good morning, I complimented her on her dress and she immediately blushed and ducked her head and ran out of the kitchen. Why do we do this? We buy a fantastic outfit, great accessories, and when someone compliments us, we run away?

Here's my new personal goal...never to run from a compliment again. I work hard for my health and to keep myself looking good. So I deserve those compliments and from now on will confidently say "Thank you for noticing!" when someone takes the time to pay me one...stand up proud, Ladies!

In our society women are still taught to be modest, making recieving complements uncomfortable. But that is a great goal :)

Yea, I agree!! But, I probably would have done the same thing, because I'm shy. But, deep down, I do enjoy the compliments!!

Accepting compliments with grace is a wonderful thing. Good goal, OP!

Heck, when I get compliments on my outfits, I always say smile and thanks. I LOVE the attention.

She was a poor girl. Compliments are supposed to be a confidence BOOSTER, oh well. Modesty can't hurt much.
