One thing I struggle with is taking a compliment. I don’t why I am this way. But I know, I will deflect a compliment in a quick second.
I was having a serious / silly conversation with one of my friends. I was giving her the update about me getting the COVID vaccine since I am a Healthcare worker. In said conversation, she asked her if I could get her on the list as well. My silly response was sure then I followed up with you know I don’t have that type of power.
Her response to me knocked me off my rocker. She said “Can you just be great for a moment?” We both know I couldn’t get her name on a list but she wanted me to stop and see for a second that I am still held in high regards.
I need to learn to say “Thank You”. I need to learn that I do bring value to the table.
Lesson for the week…take the compliment.
