Very poorly, I work with wonderful people and get complements on outfits or hair...if I take the time to blow dry and style but never feel comfortable or believe it. It makes me more uncomfortable than anything

I hardly ever get compliments but when I do I just laugh awkwardly.

My hairdresser always gushes over my hair..... I haven't been there in over a year now to avoid it (well, that and the sitting in front of a mirror)

I feel really awkward when I receive compliments too. I hate almost everything about myself physically (and otherwise)...

I do think that I have a very good and compassionate heart with a special ability to empathize with others, though that hasn't done anything for me other than cause me more pain in life.
