I'm still in the process of learning how to accept a compliment graciously and gracefully. I am learning not to deflect them, but just smile and say "thank you"

I have always accepted compliments graciously and have been pleased to receive them. Some people have difficulty giving compliments, so when I receive them, I show my gratitude in case that person is one of them, that way it makes them feel good that they gave one.

While I was reading it I was thinking the same thing. "they can't possibly mean it, they're just being nice or they want something". Even when my husband does it!

Wow. I do that all the time with the "oh sure, you're just being nice..."
I think I should start working on that.
Thank you for sharing this!
