How to Take a Compliment

Group Therapy: I Can't Take a Compliment

This question is from a Group Therapy post in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

You know that person that always turns a compliment around just to point out why they don't deserve the praise you're giving them? Well, I think I'm one of those people. 

I know how annoying it is to say something nice to someone just for them to say that you're wrong and tell you that really they are really bad at whatever you just commended them for. I think I feel it's a nicety or just polite to give someone a compliment. I feel like when people compliment me it's more of an obligation on their part than them trying to be sincere and considerate. How can I stop this behavior in myself?
