Today’s BEDM is about compliments – the best compliment you have received.
I genuinely have no idea what to post about here.
I’m not great at taking compliments, I smile and say thanks, or joke it off. I appreciate compliments of course, as we all do, but certainly from a relationship stand point, they’ve usually been very lacking. I can’t really remember the nicest compliment I have ever received – either because I’ve received a lot, or because they aren’t things I really hold on to. I’m not ungrateful, but I suppose nothing has really stayed with me enough to spring straight to mind. I am very happy with the person I am and I know the people who like me, like me for me – along with whatever attributes I might get complimented on. I don’t get too precious about what people actually say, because I know that sometimes people just think it and that’s all that matters.
To me, my biggest compliment is my children. As possibly a slightly biased mother, I think my kids are amazing. They are two of the brightest, funniest, well-spoken, polite, friendly (so on and so on) little girls that you will ever meet. They are literally the joy of my life and just looking at those girls and knowing they came from me and were brought up by me, is honestly the biggest compliment I could receive. If I never achieve anything in life, if I never make my dream job, or win the lottery – I will eternally be proud that I made and raised those two little girls.
