Compliments and how to actually enjoy them
Saturday, May 11, 2013
Most of us here don't know how to accept, enjoy and actually appreciate compliments given to us. We all turn around and add some comment of 'Thank you' - Its nothing, to 'You don't really mean that' or worse we belittle our selves and say things like "I'm not pretty, what do you mean you think I'm pretty...."
Today I actually tried something new -three co-workers all asked me about how much weight I had lost, and I told them, and they all said it looked good and i was looking good and instead of saying 'You've got to be kidding I'm 300+ lbs" I was very happy. In fact I felt joy, that while I haven't notice any physical change, others have. And that was a good motivator today. Plus I told them all about Sparkpeople.
