Girls are trained to say, ‘I wrote this, but it’s probably really stupid.’ Well, no, you wouldn’t write a novel if you thought it was really stupid. Men are much more comfortable going, ‘I wrote this book because I have a unique perspective that the world needs to hear.’ Girls are taught from the age of seven that if you get a compliment, you don’t go, ‘Thank you’, you go, ‘No, you’re insane.’

Lena Dunham, in an interview with The Guardian (via florida-sounds)

So, when I first started counseling in high school, one thing I was told to do was say “Okay” whenever someone paid me a compliment. It was a good middle ground between tearing myself apart and accepting the compliment, which was too difficult for me to do. I still do it sometimes, and I even say “Okay,” sometimes when my husband says he loves me.
