A compliment I struggle to accept is that I am pretty. During my school years I was told by other children that is was not pretty. This followed with me and my core belief was that I was ugly. This resulted in low self-esteem. I always felt I was not a pretty or as smart as other people.
I guess this is why I find it difficult to accept any kind of compliment. When I get a compliment I assume the person is just saying it to be nice, that they really don’t mean it. The problem is I don’t believe it myself so I am not going to accept they are being genuine. The solution is I should have confidence in how I am and not take into account what others think. It is time for me to look in the mirror and say “I am pretty”.
