The other day, I was at the market and someone gave me a really nice compliment. I then preceded to get weird about it, which pretty much turned it into an awkward situation for the both of us.
Later on, I wondered why I didn’t just take the compliment and say thank you. It’s simple, there are no strings attached and you (and the person complimenting) feel good about the interaction.
I can get into the whole self esteem thing and all that jazz, but I wont. I’ll just say this, if someone is giving you a compliment, just take it… It feels better for everyone involved.

For some reason, compliments are more difficult to accept than criticism.
True, but only because we’re used to it being that way… and rarely compliment ourselves. I think we should all work on being nicer to ourselves and complimenting us and others a lot more 😊
