The other day at church someone told me I had a beautiful smile.

Yet my head insists on making this hard for me to accept. It gets twisted around and changed and I somehow make it into something that it isn’t. I can’t just let it be what it is.

Why can’t I just believe someone when they say something nice to me? It makes me crazy sometimes. It never stops, even for a second.

One day I hope I’ll be able to accept a compliment and just enjoy it. Hopefully it’ll happen sooner rather than later.

    Oh my gosh, this is so me. I can never seem to take compliments. The only compliment that I ever seem to consider valid and truthful is that I’ve lost weight. It’s like nothing else matters sometimes. If someone tells me they love my smile, I automatically assume that that’s the only nice thing they can find to say about me. Honestly, I’ve never really thought much about this but it sure is true of me.

    My husband also says I need to learn to accept a compliment. He tells me I’m beautiful all the time and it does make me feel good for like a second, and then I doubt it..I wonder if he really means it or if he’s just saying it to make me feel better. I have this problem to…y’all are not alone.
