My question is aimed at people who feel like they're not physically attractive. If someone says you are beautiful (or handsome, sexy, pretty, whatever) like they mean it, does it change the way you feel about yourself? Do you 'believe' them?

Last week, I was walking from the gym. It was long walk, way too hot, hair disheveled, I saw my reflection of my body when I passed buildings and thought, ugh... I need to tone up real bad. Well, I was about to go into a restaurant becuase I had just missed the bus, and was going to wait. This guy in a truck pulls up and COMPLETELY compliments my beauty. I mean, he was just saying everything right under the sun and I'm like... HUH? you think I'm still pretty looking like this?
I think what tends to happen is that our own minds are our own enemy. Our thoughts and how we feel about ourselves are the only thoughts and feelings we know best. So, when somebody else comes along and says you're beautiful, it's not only shocking, but it's inspiring.1
