They are deep.
Full of colour.
A: "hey I really like your eyes, they have.." Me: "No, what are you talking about? Everyone has brown eyes. It's boring."
A: " uhmm yeah but.." The conversation kept going like this but I just didn't want to hear an explanation for why my eyes are nice....because I didn't want to accept it. ♡ Accepting compliments ♡ It's an easy thing: someone says something nice and we thank them and that's it. But no. I remember exactly that when I was 14 and I would get a compliment from my crush that I would feel uncomfortable. I didn't like the situation. On the one hand I felt flattered and happy but on the other hand I kept thinking that he can't see right...that he is just saying that to make me feel good. Sentences like these came into my mind: "He is just saying that, he doesn't mean it"; " he is blind"; "That's not true, I have a mirror at home!". ◇Maybe you can relate ?◇
It took time to realise that when someone gives you a compliment they usually mean it! It took time to built up my inner confidence but the journey was worth it. Now I can accept a compliment and be happy about it and I even often think " yes I think so too, thank you" (Sometimes I say that out loud and it can seem arrogant to others but well ..xD). Let's be honest here: sometimes the 14 year old me comes through but then I remind myself that I am enough. Working on yourself is a constant process.
