Can You Take a Compliment?

Can you take a compliment? Surprisingly, many people have a hard time accepting a compliment. They brush it off, saying “oh, that’s nothing.” That diminishes the compliment for both yourself and the giver. Instead, embrace and enjoy all the positive feedback you get.

I have found that many of my clients have a hard time accepting compliments. It can be a symptom of low self-esteem. However, becoming aware of compliments and accepting them is also a way to build yourself up. If you have my book Life after Bullying, review chapter 15 on feedback today. After all, it is World Compliment Day 😉
