After I lost weight and began to be more experimental with my look, people started to give me compliments, but I've noticed more people have become intimidated by me as well. I don't want people to be afraid of me. As my Mom told me when I was little, "the butterflies and dragonflies are more afraid of you than you are of them." So, with that I've become still and brave and now they land on me and I can admire their beauty without fear or scaring them off. I am still working on this with people, but I'd like people to know, it's okay to say hi to me and compliment me even if I look shy, busy, sad or even mad. I'm thankful for it and can tell the difference between harassment and compliment.
