I'm going to state this--- I am a good looking person, no great looking person. Well above average, maybe even above the above averages. Yes, I have wonderful facial features and a great body. My genes did me well. Why is that wrong to admit? It's something so superficial and so factual... Who gives a sh! t if I call myself gorgeous? Why is that bad to do? Why do I get hate for that? I'm truly trying to understand but can't. I could care less if someone beautiful admits, yeah I know I am visually attractive. It's something pretty obvious already, I think they can openly claim to know that. I understand there are narcissists, but there's a difference between those who know they are just visually attractive and being narcissistic. Narcissism is believing you are above everyone else and being very self centered... What does admitting that your parents passed on some good looking genes have to do with that?
I guess I'm just ranting bc I feel like I am encouraged to be some confident woman, but the moment I admit that I know I am beautiful and the effect it has on men, or people in general, then I am some self centered, narcisstic person who is so stuck up and full of herself.. When all I did was admit I understand that visually I got lucky. It's just annoying, especially when people think it's all I have about me as well. I feel as if others project their own opinions and beliefs onto me without even knowing me. It's almost gotten to where I don't like dressing up and going out bc I half feel guilty, and bc of the stares and prejudgments I get from people.

I think that if someone asks you directly, or it comes up on a conversation, you should admit what you truly think about yourself.
If someone compliments you, you should just say thanks, and/or reciprocate. It's not very polite to confirm a compliment, and this goes for any compliment. Because it makes the compliment less special. It is like your are disregarding it, instead of appreciating it.1

well if you think you're above average and look stunning that's good.. really... but what people might consider as narcissistic might be the fact that you walk around saying "look at me... am gorgeous".. i mean if you're aware of it maybe you should just keep it to yourself... that's it and no need to tell everyone or vent about it... cause venting can be annoying
p. s: ain't tryna be mean but its the only way i found to express it...1
