Yesterday, in a Coping and Healing group, people talked about compliments. Several said they had trouble accepting compliments because they
- didn’t believe them,
- didn’t deserve them,
- weren’t used to them,
- felt conceited,
- felt embarrassed,
- associated them with past traumas, and
- were less comfortable with them than they were with familiar negative talk.
Compliments can’t hurt us! Let’s try to accept them with a simple “thank you.”
Let’s see if there are any compliments in my other images for today.
Compliments to the U.S. Congress for not sleeping and doing something hard: raising the debt ceiling and averting global fiscal disaster.
Here’s what I find on YouTube when I search for compliments.
Thanks to all who do their best to give and receive compliments, including YOU!
