If you have trouble accepting compliments, you’re not alone! Many of us have trouble accepting the nice things that our friends and family say to us. It’s odd that we can have so much trouble simply accepting the kind, loving comments from people we know and trust, but it’s a common phenomenon. Luckily, there’s hope for those of you in this situation! You can train yourself to get better at receiving warmth and kindness from others.

To get started, try this meditation:

Sit quietly for a little while after prepping for your meditation. Focus your attention on the love in your life. Think about those you love most, and those who love you most.

Get yourself in a positive mindset by wrapping yourself in their warmth and affection. Open yourself up to receiving all the good that your loved ones have to offer.

Think about a recent compliment someone gave you. Pick someone close to you, since the closer they are, the more meaningful the compliments tend to be.

Repeat the compliment in your head a few times, and see how it feels. If it still feels unnatural or uncomfortable, remind yourself that your loved one genuinely cares about you and would want you to accept the compliment fully.
