This recently heard truth makes sense: 

  • Person 1: If someone gave you a present would you throw it away? 
  • Person 2: No. 
  • Person 1: Exactly, so if I give you a compliment just say ‘Thank you’ and accept what is.

Sometimes I don’t accept compliments because I don’t want others to think I’m full of myself. It’s okay to accept the good things in my character; I’m not being cocky just acknowledging the goodness within me. Being loving also includes loving myself.
