Why is it that when someone compliments more than once it's my instinct to say stop?
It's like no-stop one compliment is all I deserve.
Why do I feel that way, why do I only deserve one compliment?
Why do I feel rude and disrespectful when I say thanks?
Sometimes, I feel like people compliment me because they feel bad
"She doesn't get enough compliments, let's give her one"
"Poor girl, let's tell her we like her shoes"
But why am I the poor girl?
Why is my self-worth measured in the number of times someone tells me I'm pretty?
Why do I go home crying when nobody noticed my new shirt?
Why is the only reason I am still alive because she told me she liked my hair?
