How to Receive the Compliment?

Today I was watching the FAQs on Spiritual Life & Love Relationship, LifeBook Online [1] given by Jon & Missy. One question that was caught my attention, is how to receive a compliment?

I don’t feel comfortable to receive compliment.

For what ever the reason, I feel nervous when people compliment me, not mentioning giving me gifts. I would either come up with reasons or excuses as if it’s not a big deal at all and it’s not worthy for me to receive compliment. At the same time, I think people will react the same if I compliment them. Ironically, sometimes I do need and deserve compliments, and if I don’t get it, I feel hurt. So, it causes me very uncomfortable in such a situation.

I learnt that it’s a discipline to learn how to receive compliment comfortably. It’s nice to know that I’m not the only one with this problem. The answer is easy, just say “Thank you” sincerely.

Giving and receiving are both important!

From here, I realized that giving and receiving are the two side of the coin, and this is the enjoyment about them. I can’t give, but not receive. So from now on, I’ll be happily receiving the compliment and “Thank you”.
