Learn to accept compliments. When someone gives you a compliment, don’t fight it, analyze it or deny it. Just stop, smile and say “THANK YOU”. People don’t have to give you compliments, so when they do they usually mean it. I give you permission to take that gift and own it. Also, remember that it hurts the other person’s feelings if you dismiss their compliment, so if you can’t accept it for your sake, do it for theirs!
