The other day my boss and I were talking about how difficult it is for us to accept a compliment. I don't know if it's because we were so criticized in life that a compliment seems unfamiliar and strange or that we somehow don't feel deserving of compliments, but, as with gifts, I'd rather be on the giving end. That's not to say that I don't appreciate gifts and compliments, it's more that I can sometimes feel uncomfortable in the receiving role. Apparently, I need to take a few tips from this video: How to take compliments.

Given with sincerity and the motive to be kind, compliments can make us feel good, as demonstrated in the video below:


A great scene:


  1. And doesn't America need cheering up!

    That was a great movie. Great cast. What's Helen Hunt up to these days? She has such nice skin - just like yours Lize.

  2. Thank you, Ewen. You're so kind! :D

    Helen hasn't done much lately, but I heard the movie she is in called "Six Sessions" that came out this year is supposed to be good. I haven't seen it yet.
