How Well Can You Take a Compliment Since Dressing Your Truth?

Something interesting happens when women start Dressing their Truth.

We call it our “Compliment Guarantee.”

But suddenly receiving so much positive attention can make some women uncomfortable or unsure of how to respond.

So get our tips for the best way to handle those compliments coming your way.

What’s with all the attention?

When you really start to show up in your Type of Beauty, people notice!

Even total strangers come up to tell you how amazing you look. We know many women who have been stopped in the grocery store or the mall and told how great they look.

But sadly, many of us women have been conditioned to to deflect compliments or respond by putting ourselves down or pointing out something we don’t like instead.

Instead, watch the video for what to do the next time you receive a compliment.

You’ll also hear what a compliment really is—and how to receive it humbly and graciously.

Plus, find out what I’ve been doing more of lately to recognize the beauty of all women.

How do you respond to compliments since Dressing Your Truth? Share your tips and comments with us below!

When in doubt, say “Thank you!”

But beauty is God-given and we believe God is honored by us acknowledging our beauty with a humble heart of gratitude and reverence.

Saying “Thank you” is your best way to respond when you receive a compliment. It’s a gift! So receive that gift as an expression of love with open arms.

Continued compliments = a great time to share Dressing Your Truth

When someone in your life continues to compliment you on how great you look, that’s a great opportunity to introduce them to the Dressing Your Truth program.

Let them know how it’s supported you and invite them to learn their Type of Beauty! You can share this link with them to access their free course:

Lastly, say this with me and get comfortable with this truth for yourself:

I’m grateful to recognize my own beauty and the beauty of all women.”

    I’ve always been big on giving compliments! I know that we as women struggle to really feel confident about our appearance day to day, so if I see someone who looks awesome, I tell her. (I just wish my close friends would stop saying they look bad and I’m biased!)

    My husband and I met his sister, brother in law and nephew for lunch this weekend and our nephew who is 9 years old and a HUGE fan of the game Minecraft saw a little girl with a Minecraft T-shirt, and my sister in law encouraged him to go up and compliment her. And she said thank you. It starts as kids… we love it when other people recognize something about us they like and let us know. And it gets harder and harder as we grow up to just accept a compliment with a simple thank you and a smile.

    I tell everyone who will listen about DYT because it has really helped me learn to see myself in a more positive light. I haven’t gotten compliments from random strangers, but people I know have been loving my new refined look and say I look like I’m losing weight. It feels great, and I think every woman should feel this good!

    Loved this topic! I really saw beauty in every woman after learning to bellydance; when I got in touch with my own unique beauty. It opened the door to really see others’ beauty and to release competition about looks. Dressing Your Truth has also been transformational for me. I do get lots of compliments, and I truly take them in. I also GIVE more compliments. I was already thinking them, but now I make an effort to say them out loud so that they can be received by the other person. It is a beautiful exchange of energy! Although my family is tired of hearing about it, DYT is a wonderful program to gift yourself if you haven’t done it already.

    Dressing Your Truth has given me ways to look for and see beauty in other people and myself. I like giving compliments and am delighted to receive them too. A great way to connect with people and uplift them.
