TTell me if this sounds familiar: You walk into work and someone gives you a lovely compliment about your hair or your outfit or your work on a project and the first thing you say is something to the effect of, “Oh, this? OMG, I was running so late today and my hair looks horrible! It wouldn’t do anything I wanted it to!” In essence, you try to talk the person out of giving you a compliment. Or maybe you make up that if you actually just said “thank you”, then you would clearly be a cocky asshole?

If any of that sounds familiar, you are most certainly in the majority. Due to multiple factors in our lives, we oftentimes have a tough time simply accepting the lovely compliments that come our way. In this episode, I address a listener submission on this topic and elaborate on 5 steps you can take to re-frame how you look at compliments from others… without feeling like a cocky asshole.

This pod explores:

  • My favorite metaphor for compliments and kindness from others
  • How to figure out what you are making compliments MEAN and how that is related to your self-worth
  • What we usually do when someone compliments us, why we do it, and how to change it
  • How to create a new relationship with compliments that feels freeing and awesome instead of uncomfortable and stifling
