Compliments are Positive Energy
Focusing on good things makes us feel good. Has anyone ever paid you a compliment that you didn’t accept? For example, has someone told you your new dress is very becoming and you responded by saying, “Oh, this old thing?”Maybe at work someone complimented you on a job well done and you responded, “It was nothing.”
Why is it often difficult to accept a compliment? Why can’t we be grateful and just say “thank you”? When we decline a compliment, we think we are being humble, but the message it delivers to our subconscious is altogether different. Rejection of a compliment sends a message to the brain that we are not pretty, or smart, or hard working! This response also makes the person who paid us the compliment feel bad because we didn’t accept it.
When we are grateful and accept the kind words someone has given us, it makes us feel good inside. That compliment is stored in our “hard drive,” and continues to deliver positive energy.
