Our expert says:
The saying that beauty is in the eye of the beholder is very true – How we feel about ourselves – the way we think and see ourselves, impacts how we feel about ourselves. You mention that your man pays you compliments, but you somehow just do not take it…you do not believe him, so how do you think that makes him feel?
I would suggest that you start by taking charge of your own thoughts and stop criticizing yourself. Accepting compliments – although you do not feel it/think it, it is the other person’s opinion and by not accepting it, you are actualizing indicating that they have poor taste!
