As I was leaving Zach’s day care yesterday, another parent and I were having a conversation. We were about to say our good-byes when she stopped and said, "You look really nice today." I replied back with "Thanks, my regular clothes were all dirty and I had to dig out something else to wear." I don’t know why I felt like I had to say that. I couldn’t just accept the compliment. Why couldn’t I just let her think that I looked nice because I wanted to look nice?
Why Do I Do That?

I had a friend give me heck for not accepting a compliment. She was angry that when she’d compliment me on an outfit I’d divulge that I bought it at a second hand store or got it in a bargain bin. Now I simply say thank you instead of trying to talk the person out of their compliment.
You deserve compliments- you are worth it. Every singel one.
