  2. I have to agree with it being irritating for those who do not accept tactfully. Thank you for these amazing tips.

  3. Gah, I’m awful about this. It’s so easy to give sincere compliments, so hard to sometimes to take them.

  4. I really struggle with this myself. I try to bite my tongue and just say thank you, but sometimes I do deflect it.

  5. I’ve always had a difficult time accepting compliments. Even when I know I deserve them, I have a difficult time with them.

  6. It is hard to accept compliments some times…it can make for an awkward and uncomforable moment when all we really need to do is graciously say thank you! lol

  7. Very good advice – I always have a hard time accepting compliments on my art work. I know what is wrong with every piece.
