I find it difficult sometimes to have faith in myself and my abilities, compliments in particular can be quite overwhelming. As much as I like them, I also tend to shy away from them. So if my only reply is a simple "thank you" it's because I am lost for words and don't know what else to say. Self confidence without being arrogant, how does a person achieve that? For me, it is this question that makes me struggle to believe in myself. I'm sure there must be others "out there" who face the same demons.
