The Compliments


I’ve always received the most unusual yet genuine compliments imaginable. It’s quite charming. To recall, I was once told I had smiling eyes… and that’s one of the most beautiful compliments I’ve ever heard. I’ve been proposed to five times: four girls and one gay guy. Anyway, a special person once told me that I’m a beautiful man; I still have no idea what that is. One girl said I had a gorgeous smile, and so did my Moroccan teacher. Of course, I’ve heard stuff like hot and sexy but they never really meant anything to me. One of my closest friends said I was dreamy… that’s such a 90s phrase and I love it. Oh, and I was told I have the softest skin ever - which is actually quite true. I was also told by many sources that I have the greatest beard ever. I love your voice is also a compliment I hold dear to me. I have an old soul, my physical therapist and friend told me. Those are really cool. I don’t want to come off as pompous by mentioning these but lately, my confidence has suffered quite a lot so I figured writing these down might help a bit. Alas, it doesn’t… the best compliment I’ve ever received was being told the words “I love you”… that never gets old.

This is me. I don’t really like posting pictures of myself but hey, once a while is okay.

Delusional


I was once called delusional by someone most dear to me and for some reason, I took it as a sincere compliment. I’m an irrational person; I’m spontaneous and devilishly romantic. I tell myself to think logically rather than under impulse but I don’t… because it’s not me. I’m not very frantic, though. I’m quite nonchalant because I don’t let things harsh my mellow easily. I contradict myself all the time but I always know who I am and what I want. I am truly delusional, yes. I don’t see things the way they are. Rather, I see them the way I want to. I explore the fringes of reality; the fringes of my inabilities and if something does not seem realistic to people, I’m not bothered. It is because of my delusive state of mind, I have managed to achieve personal success, unparalleled bliss and self-acceptance. I am indeed delusional in the eyes of many and I will continue to dare to defy. It is my delusion that drives me towards my goals, my happiness, and you…
