Honesty vs. Faking It

I wake up late - very late - almost every day. I rarely have time to put on make-up and my hair is almost always in a pony-tail or a clip. I regularly get comments on how tired I look. And while I am tired, let's face it, being told every day you look like the Anna on the left doesn't exactly feel good.

On the other hand, if I take the time to put on make-up and try to do something with my hair it's gratifying to be told I look nice, but when the compliment has the "you must be feeling better" coda attached to it, it's hard to not to say, "Nope. Not feeling better. Just sick of people commenting on my appearance."
