Read Surveys (By Question)
82. Did anyone ever say anything to you that made you see yourself differently, on a physical and especially sartorial level?
Not that I recall.
Someone once mentioned that I always looked put together -- and I was surprised. It wasn't how I saw myself, although I like nice clothing so I can skimp on makeup.
a few times in my life, people have guessed my weight as much lower than it is. a couple people have called me small or skinny. i don't see it, so it trips me up.
I think the compliments that my clothes/appearance elicit usually affirm the way I like to see and think about myself, which is nice. It helps me be kinder to myself.

It made me feel more comfortable wearing clothes like trainers or hoodies, which I'd previously thought I couldn't pull off because I thought I looked like I was an older person trying to look young, rather than just a younger person dressing appropriately.
my housemate said the other day 'you're like a wandering art gallery'. that was the biggest compliment I got in a while. it's all women artists, guerilla girls approved.
Not really no.
My first boyfriend told me I was the most intimidating girl he’d ever met. I put that down to my RBF, but it made me look at my presence in a different light.
