While not everyone in my life is great, I do have several people who take pains to reassure, encourage, and compliment me. Whoosh. None of it ever sinks in. Any criticism sticks; I can remember it forever. I can remember positive things I've been told, but I don't believe them. I know this is fairly common; the most progress I've made with CBT techniques is to stop repeating the negative things inside my own head. Has anyone turned this around, even in small ways, to start accepting positive comments from others?
