I have always been shy for as long as I can remember, but now my shyness has escalated into something more.  I have come to the realization that receiving compliments always makes me a little uncomfortable.  Now I have always hated when someone would disagree with a compliment that I would give them and although I don't necessarily disagree with compliments given to me, I don't always appear to appreciate them. I do believe that because a part of my shyness is to never want all eyes on me, receiving compliments make me feel awkward since they can cause you to get the attention of all those around.  Is it wrong to feel this way? Yes.



The reason I would say it is wrong to feel this way is because a lot of people who also suffer from this problem aren't necessarily shy. They get uncomfortable because they don't believe the compliment that is given to them, whether it's "you're pretty", "you're smart" or "you're funny".
  
Unfortunately this is lack of self confidence.  In my case, it's not that I don't believe what the person is saying, but why can't I accept it?  I feel that women suffer with this problem more than anyone else, since we're taught not to be self absorbed,  it seems we confuse being complimented with being conceited. So to all my ladies in the place with style and grace, let us learn how to accept compliments whether it's on our physical appearance or our personality. Accept that you are amazing and allow no one to treat you any less.


P.S. This is just my personal opinion on this matter. I would love to hear what you have to say whether you agree or disagree, make sure to comment below!
