"Feel compliments as deeply as you feel insults." - James Clear

Think about that. Compliments are hard to accept. We defer, demur, and deflect. But we dwell on almost any insult. Why? Because we focus on our faults and give high priority to insults because they point them out. We are created in God’s image and denying compliments is denying God’s wisdom in creating us in the beautiful way He did, bumps, lumps, faults, and all. When it comes to compliments, receive them with grace. When it comes to insults, disregard them, and consider the source.
