Do you ever feel like you don’t give yourself enough credit?
I have been noticing a lot lately that when I receive a compliment, I kinda say “Thanks but, I’m not that good.”. I’m not pulling for more, I really feel like I shouldn’t receive compliments that much.
I am grateful for them. I do appreciate them. I do take them.
Maybe I’m just stopping myself from getting big-headed.
It makes me feel good and weird at the same time to get compliments… especially when it comes to the way I look. Those are the ones I really take in with the interesting mixed feeling of happy and sad at the same time.
When I do something and it’s good, those are easier to just say back “Thanks, I guess it’s alright.” and then I have to ask to make sure, “You really like it?”.
A lot of the time I can’t tell if it’s genuine or not. Later, I realize almost all of them are.
I greatly appreciate all the positive feedback so maybe I should just take it the first time.
Anything else should just be brushed off easier. Maybe? Okay =)
