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.
