I move in circles of work and ministry.
I do get some compliments, that the work I do is of great benefit, and helps those who suffer.
I also get a tad embarrassed.They mean to encourage me, because my work is very hard at times...I also do a lot of crying,(with workmates) due to the sadness I see, so people come along and hug me a great deal too.
I do believe them now but it's taken a lot to learn to accept them after growing up in a very critical household and with an undiagnosed learning disability.
My most recent couple of compliments have come from staff at a shop where I'm having crochet lessons, learning from the beginning, and the orchestra conductor, after I was left on my own in the viola section at one rehearsal when we did a 'dress rehearsal' of an item before a concert.
