The Narcissist Ponders

29 03 2013

Every day, when somebody tells me I’m pretty I go through an array of emotions. First, obviously, I am flattered. But then I gauge how attractive the person telling me is. Usually, pretty people don’t tell other pretty people that they are also pretty because, well, they know that you know, or something like that. Maybe it’s just an unsaid thing. Anyway, but if the person giving the compliment is very unattractive, is it really a huge compliment? I feel like it devalues the observation. Now, if someone really hot says it, then I feel it holds more weight. So then I get upset wondering if this person is just going around town telling people they are pretty, willy nilly. That is so rude. Who is this stranger trying to make me feel so insecure? The gall of some people. Le sigh. I say thank you anyway. I’m not going to let them ruin my day.
