When someone pays you a compliment, do you say “thank you, I appreciate your kind words”
or are you quick to respond with a counter-argument?
Examples being: “Really, I haven’t lost any weight. Have you seen the size of these thighs?
In fact I’ve gained a few pounds, I’ve been eating too many pies.”
“I look younger, that can’t be, I look every bit of my age and more, no father time has
not been kind to me.”
“I look pretty today, thank you, but, I can’t hide these blemishes or clear this skin up.”
Does that sound like you? If so, work on erasing those negative thoughts from your mind.
If someone pays you a compliment, be glad they did and accept it.
There is no need to refute it, believe it is true.
It’s always so easy to downplay our beauty and exaggerate our flaws. Everybody has flaws.
Even those who are considered the most beautiful people in the world have their own insecurities.
We must learn to see the beauty in everyone and focus on their positive attributes.
In doing so we will accentuate the positive in ourselves.
Wipe away negativity. Just like the energetic school teacher feverishly cleaning an old blackboard
in a classroom. They could wipe away the words but there would still be chalk residue.
The more words the teacher wrote and wiped away, the greater the build up of chalk residue
there would be on the blackboard, changing the colour from black to ashy grey to almost white.
That’s how negative thoughts creep in and settle in our minds, the longer we leave those words
of doubt engraved in our psyche, the harder they are to erase. It’s time for us to bring out that special cleaner.
There is no time like the present, start right now and celebrate something you love about yourself today.
Receive the compliments and know they are true. You are uniquely you, there is no one like you.
We come in all shapes and sizes, we come in all hues. Here at Dark Secrets Cosmetics,
we celebrate the beauty in you.
