I can't take a compliment! I know that might sound weird but its totally true. Whenever people compliment what I am wearing, my blog, Instagram, my sewing, baking, etc. I never know how to respond......Usually I just respond with a mumbled "thank you" and then awkwardly stand there trying to change the topic of the conversation and take the spotlight off of me. Or, in regards to social media I revert to the monkey emoji's that cover their eyes and mouth (those emoji's are my fave).
The thing is, I don't do the things I do to gain recognition, be thought as cool/talented, or get people to compliment me or my abilities. I do what I do because I LOVE it, because it is me, and it is a way for me to use my gifts and talents. That is the craziest thing about putting myself out there, is that people begin to see who I am and all the things I can do. Even stranger is that I always forget people I know actually read my blog (hello all of you!) and then when I see them they always say something about it. Don't get me wrong, I do love it when I get compliments from people, but I hate being the center of attention, so reacting to the compliments I receive is always hard.
Blogging and Instagram are like my jobs I don't get paid for and sewing and baking are just two of the gifts God has given me and I love using them to fill creative voids and make other people happy. Therefore, even though it is hard for me to take a compliment at times, it's something that comes along with my varied interests and actually gives me an opportunity to compliment those who give me such sweet compliments.
So here's to each one of you who always make my day by your sweet comments and compliments!
You are FABULOUS:)
Do you ever have a hard time taking a compliment?
