Compliments and Me!

I suck at receiving compliments. I know some people who are really in control of the situation when someone throws a compliment their way and handle it all poised and nice...and then there is me. I say that because everytime I get a compliment I do one of the following or worse:

  • I blush, smile and avoid the person the rest of the day lest I burst the bubble that the person saw me through.
  • I say, "me? really? no way...you are not looking right, I actually have a flat nose"
  • or I say, "ya, but yours is better." and then get into an argument as to why I suck and go about proving it.
  • or I am surprised, shocked and look embarassed that someone noticed and complimented.
  • or I do something silly to make the person wonder why they ever told me anything at all.
Do any of you have that problem? Or is it just me??!!!

Love
