How to Receive a Compliment

Most of us find it hard to receive a compliment. I often struggle with it, but am training myself to receive it with grace. I typically grit my teeth and try to avoid brushing the compliment away with an excuse of why I'm not what the compliment-offerer says I am. I try to offer no excuse. I force a smile and say "thank you," even though inside I whole-heartedly disagree.

I'm working on it, people. And, I know most women are just like me in this area.

Through time, we've learned that this problem, combined with a bit of self-esteem issues.

But, I've found the greatest tutorial on how to receive a compliment from my friend,  Jenny from Jenny on the Spot.









I'm so doing this from now on.

You should too. It's time we grab hold of that compliment and own it!
