Episode 28: So You Agree? You Think You're Really Pretty.

Do you take compliments well? 

Without the "ums, ahs" and everything in between? If there's one thing we've noticed that many of us (ourselves included!), instead of saying "thank you" and moving on, we qualify our choices. If someone likes our outfit we tell them how much it costs. If someone thinks our curly hair looks nice, we turn it around, or talk about how difficult it is to manage in the humidity.

We do this in the name of being humble. But where do you draw the line between humility and trash-talking yourself?

  • "If you say you like my dress, is it because you can see my boobs through it?" -Brett
  • "How do you come across confident and not cocky?" -Sarah
  • "If we respond negatively to a compliment about ourselves, that might be taking the pressure off." -Brett
  • "Even when you say 'thank you,' that translates into 'I know.'" -Sarah
  • "Speak life over yourself, girl!" -Brett
