|The very pretty author of this post!|
My co-worker said that to me one time at a work Christmas party. I didn’t know it was a rather casual Christmas party, so I was more dressed up than everyone else. I was so self-conscious I refused to take my coat off. When people had asked me why I just didn’t take my coat off, I responded saying I felt overdressed. That’s when my co-worker told me to ‘never apologize for being pretty.”
I think it’s safe to say that pretty people make an impression on others. So what if I was dressed up more than others? People took notice. Getting noticed is always a good thing (when it’s for the right reasons).
I was uncomfortable in that situation at the Christmas party because I don’t like people staring at me. Once I took off my coat I was getting compliments left and right about my outfit. Getting compliments always makes you feel more confident. That never would have happened if I hadn’t dared to just take off my coat.
My co-worker was right; no one should ever have to apologize for looking their best.
