We can be very critical of ourselves, ladies. And often we're quick to deflect a compliment, without letting it really sink in, without really feeling it sometimes. Are we worried we'll be perceived as conceited or self-centered? I keep wanting to really connect with compliments when I receive them, and I want to connect with the generosity of the person who's offered one! Recognition can be emotionally complicated for some of us, but it's also an important experience to let in.
Do tell, what was the most memorable or meaningful compliment you've ever received?
