Yesterday, I watched President Obama's speech and the part that struck me most was his compliments to his wife, Michelle and their two daughters. What if your husband or father got a chance to speak to the whole world and he took time to compliment you in his speech? How would it make you feel? Wonderful or embarrassed? If you accept genuine compliments well, it tells you something about yourself: you are comfortable with who you are and like yourself. If you are uncomfortable with receiving compliments and try to brush them aside, perhaps it's time you worked on your self-esteem. I wrote about how sometimes we find it easier to believe 'bad' things about ourselves in my guest post, 'The Bad Stuff Sticks?' on Aaron Outward a while back. How do you accept compliments?
