A Complete Stranger Complimented Me Today
By A Friend • April 27, 2015
I was walking to the gas station across the street from my house and a woman, whom I've never met, looked at me and went "Oh my god, you are absolutely gorgeous."
I looked around, and said "are you talking to me?"
She said "Yes. You are extremely beautiful."
I have a very low self-esteem, so hearing things like that surprise me.
I didn't even hesitate. I hugged her and said thank you.
I told her that I've never really had anyone tell me that I was gorgeous before and she said "Really?? I don't believe that, you are downright beautiful".
I teared up and thanked her again.
She told me that she had just gotten out of an abusive relationship and that she had a very low self-esteem as well. I gave her a hug and told her she was beautiful inside and out. She thanked me, told me which apartment building she lived in (we live in the same complex) and told me that if I ever needed a friend, I could stop by her place any time.
I haven't stopped smiling.
