I think most people would agree that it's much easier to give than receive. We've even been taught that it's "better" to do so. Giving is a powerful experience.
However, please consider the power in receiving. When you allow someone to give to you, you are honestly giving them something even more valuable in return; validation of their sentiment. When you actively receive with grace and openness, you permit the other person to experience the joy and power of sharing with you.
This week, actively receive, even if it's just with a thank you and smile after a compliment. Free yourself and the person giving to fully enjoy the experience.
