Receiving compliments

I’m not used to people saying nice things about me in my face. Not that there’s nothing good to be said about me, but I just feel awkward when people do that. Like earlier, a relative came to visit my grandfather in the hospital. They were talking about something else when my grandmom suddenly told the visitor how lucky they were that I was there and that I’ve been patiently staying with my grandfather for three days with barely enough sleep. She mentioned some other things, but I shut my ears and quietly went out because I was too shy. I know, there’s nothing wrong with being complimented and it feels nice that my grandmom appreciates what I’m doing. But if she said it with no other people around, maybe it won’t be as awkward.
