Why do suddenly people started complimenting me after I started feeling more confident?

Before break up I was pretty confident and the break up and the ending period of my relationship, few comments made by my ex and my break up hit my self esteem and I was feeling like the ugliest girl in the world, wore glasses to “protect” people from seeing my eyes cause I felt like my under eyes were ugly and that I was ugly myself. I thought these 4 years in a relationship made me older and I was not beautiful anymore, people also complimented me much more rarely than before, so I assumed I got old.

However, something interesting happened, one week ago I decided to take off the sunglasses and not be ashamed of my face anymore. Not hide it anymore, I thought, what changed in these 2-3 years? I am still the same sexy girl, the girl who always turned heads, the only difference from now is that I am unhappy now. So I decided to smile and be happy or happier again,

something weird happened, this week I get complimented almost all the time, I turn heads again, people approach me much more often, they smile and I feel pretty again.

I feel like I am awakening my powers haha, I wonder is that all because I just feel a bit more happy and a bit more like myself again?
