“Umm, thank you?”
Yesterday, I went to the Tennesee Aquarium with my friend Jenn. People kept staring and complimenting me on my hair. The compliments came from men and women! I pointed this out to Jenn and she said, “Well it is a very nice wig!” Which it was. It is actually one of my favorite wigs that I bought for my birthday. I’m not sure why but everytime someone compliments me on my wig, I feel the need to sheepishly let them know it is a wig. Most times, they say that they don’t care because it’s beautiful anyway. In my mind, I am usually like if I paid for it then it is MINE but I’m so awkward in person when it comes to compliments.
Maybe one day I’ll just say thank you and not feel the need to explain myself. It’s almost as if I feel like I don’t deserve it. I know, it is an insecurity I am working on. Maybe that’s one thing I should have included in the Dear Future Daughter blog post from yesterday. I should have let her know that SHE is WORTHY of compliments.
Here is the wig below:

Can any of you relate? Do compliments make you uncomfortable?
