Do You Know How To Receive?

Do you have trouble receiving compliments from others? The following is a short article by Reverend Barbara Marie Babish on how to do so:

More on Learning to Receive

Just last year, I used to have problems receiving compliments. People could not tell from my outward demeanor, but I had low self-esteem. When a person would compliment me, I would thank them but at the same time I kind of brushed it off. I didn't understand the reason for the compliment because I couldn't see what a person saw in me in order to give one.

However, I've been learning that I am a person of value, and guess what?

You are too.

There is a book that helped me with the learning process of receiving. It's called Receiving Love: Transform Your Relationship by Letting Yourself Be Loved, and it's by Harville Hendrix, Ph.D. and Helen Hunt, Ph.D. Maybe your local library has a copy that you could borrow, or if you're interested in purchasing one, click here.

"I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well." (Psalms 139:14 KJV)
