Naturally, especially as woman (although this most definitely can go both ways,) we tend to deflect compliments, which I translate into “blocking your blessings.”
Today’s quickie is all about receiving. Accepting and fully embodying what it feels like to be love and be loved.
“If someone goes out of their way to compliment you and you deflect it, you may actually be hurting them.”
As you know, giving compliments is a brave task. It can be used to break the ice on a first date, or a way to get attention from someone you admire etc…So just as much as it is brave to GIVE the compliment, it is equally as brave if not more, to fully RECEIVE the compliment.
“By not accepting a compliment, you are blocking the fact that someone observes something amazing in you and they are wanting to celebrate with you.”
As humans, who want to remain “humble,” we try to either turn the compliment completely around and end up complimenting them OR we tend to neutralize the compliment but putting negative talk around it.
“Accepting a compliment is a self-love practice!”
Stop having to have a reason for why you do something good for yourself. Knowing you are worth it, is reason enough!
