How do you feel when you are given a compliment? What is your usual response? Does the attention make you squirm?
Compliments are gifts. Tolerate the discomfort and open to receive. You are worth that and so much more.
“Thank you” is the appropriate response to a compliment. You are deserving. Most of us only receive a tiny fraction of the amount of praise we deserve. So much of what we do goes unnoticed. When someone does notice and comment, take it in.
Repeat after me, “Thank you.”
You can practice by giving yourself the credit you are due. Say, “Thank you!”
The holidays mean more socializing, more visibility and more opportunity to practice receiving any and all gifts that come your way.
