I have difficulty accepting compliments. I have long realised that I will give my friends weird look or simply shrug them off if they paid me a compliment.
I don’t know why I can’t accept something nice said of me. I would think that they are either being patronizing me or lying through their teeth.
Perhaps I just have low self esteem that I can’t think of why people would want to compliment me.
This is something I want to work on.
It’s awful to not say ‘Thank you” after someone paid you a compliment, but it’s just so hard for me to say it out, or simply accept that someone had just said something nice of me!
Alright I’m going in circles now, but you get what I mean.
Anyone out there has a suggestion on how I can be more accepting of compliments??
