I…like many of you, have always had a hard time receiving a compliment.
I don't know. It's just always made me feel awkward and uncomfortable.
I remember someone saying that insecurity is false humility. I had to ponder that one for a while.
Anyways, Here I am in my mid-30s still awkward and weird when someone gives me a compliment. Learning to graciously say "Thank You", accepting it and believing it.
Hope this helps.
