It's one thing to say thank you gracefully, and its completely another to brag, but I just think it is sad when someone is complimented and their response is self-demoralizing.
For example, this morning at the gym during spin class, the instructor complimented a woman in the first row.
Instructor: "Your legs are beautiful! They are so long and athletic."
Woman: "No way, I have chicken legs. I hate them."
Too bad we can't appreciate ourselves more.
Can you take a compliment gracefully? Are you uncomfortable with compliments?
