how to react when a friend fishes for compliments – the truthful guide

Standard

Darling peeps, what a gorgeous day it is!

 

So, we’ve all been there – the land of self-loathing and critique, that is – and I can’t be far off in saying that we’ve all complained to our patient friends about how fat, weird, unpopular, or ugly we are (queue the tiny violin). In other words: We love to self-depricate.

And the only problem in this wonderfully liberating exercise is that sometimes, those friends aren’t quite as patient and doting as we had hoped.

I’m talking about responses like

“omg I’ve gained so much weight” – “well then just go on a diet for a while and you’ll be fine”

or

“ugh I have like two friends and everyone hates me” – “well, two friends is all you really need to have a good time!”

I could go on (with my vast experience of the fishing, no judgement pls), but I think you get the picture. I mean what really bugs me is that the “friends” giving these responses are genuinely trying to help, and usually, they’re even right!

But what they don’t understand:

Just flat out deny all flaws. That’s right. Live in denial. #healthyhabits

Now, as of yet I’m not saying much that hasn’t been said before by someone or another. However. Here it comes.

Then there are the people who just lose all sense of etiquette and humoring. And. They. Join. In.

wut

This is when we have examples like these delightful ones:

“omg I’ve gained so much weight” – “well you have been eating a lot of dessert, tbh….”

“ugh I have like two friends and…” – “I think that’s because people don’t like your first impression, actually”

I’m sorry, give me a moment.

Because this has just rendered me speechless.

It’s like they’ve never even heard of LYING.

That’s the answer really.

Whether it’s the best friend, or the mother, or the brother who doesn’t even care if you look fat in that dress.

Yes, that’s the moral: Lie, kids, lie your asses off. Because it makes everyone happy.

Dishonesty is the right way to go.

so much serenity

Reasons To Start A Blog

Standard

This is my first post as a brand-new blogger, and I’m super excited!

Actually, I used to have a site, but the URL was my full name, which was kind of useless. So I never wrote anything.

However, I’m starting over now, because I love to write – about anything that’s on my mind, really.

But what are some other reasons to start a blog? If you are looking for inspiration or justification or for any reason at all, here are some suggestions:

 

1. You have some area of expertise to share: Or you’re a know-it-all; either way you’ll have stuff to say.

2. You are prone to monologuing: If nobody’s listening to you in real life, time to pester the internet! We understand!

3. You have many thoughts: Too much floating around in your head? Why not write it down for the world to see and appreciate? Deep thoughts, everyone, deep thoughts. Epiphanies everywhere.

4. You FEEL LIKE IT: If writing – about literally anything – makes you happy, then do it! Personal freedom is vital in this world!

 

Frankly, I myself read all sorts of babble, as long as the writing has a good style. There’s somebody for everybody, and there’s a reader for every blog, however random it may be. You wanna post 300 cat pictures a day? Somebody will worship your blog, I guarantee. Just look at Tumblr.

Therefore, I’m going to follow my dream, writing and posting. Enjoy!

 

Cheers,

Penny
