Here is a better way to think about this thought it may sound a bit upsetting but I assure you, I am not intending to be mean here.<br />
<br />
The first step is to forget what you think, that is being self centered. <br />
<br />
If someone likes your shirt ,it's not hard to simply say "Thank you!" with a smile. There you just took a compliment in a positive way, was not hard now was it? <br />
<br />
It's funny how someone who says that are not sweet uses the word "Love" in reference to another person in their other stories. <br />
Your going to eventually live on your own, what your family thinks is irrelevant. If others like you, than I am not sure what you are worried about. It's time to learn to live your own life, your going to make all your own decisions in your very near future. <br />
<br />
If you care about what others think then forget what you think, if someone thinks your beautiful than they see more than you are willing to see. If you accept that they like you, then you'll slowly find more enlightenment.

thank you dear i realy appreciate the advice:)

Hi there Meggie i can relate to what you have just written. I also have a hard time accepting compliments from people. It is because I grew up believing that there is nothing in me that is good. Every time they say something good I will contradict it and say my "buts" and say something that is bad about me.We all have our experiences in the past that creates in us a set of "truths" about ourselves and we ba<x>sed it on what others are thinking about us. And so we grew up with these sets of beliefs and we respond to people the way we think we are. and sometimes I feel like i was played around when in fact the person was saying a sincere compliment. <br />
Encountering God gives me freedom from all these lies that I have been believing for years. His light shine in my life and my dark past and He heals me from these wounds and in Him I found who am I. His words reveal who am I in HIm, that i am loved, accepted, valued and precious. But we have been given the choice whether what things to think about. We can control our thoughts, now is our choice whether to think and believe those things people say that we are or believe and live our lives the way God sees us precious, loved, valued in His sight. and live a life of purpose knowing He has plans for us.

thank you so much!:)
