How do you react when someone gives you a compliment?
I’m firmly in the brush-it-off-and-then-self-deprecate camp, and as someone that aims to give at least one compliment a day, I know how frustrating it is when people don’t accept your kind words at the first attempt.
Think about it: the person giving you the compliment has just gone out of their way to say something nice to you, and what do you do? Shoot it down? Make fun of yourself? Ah. And how does that work for you? Does it make the situation awkward? It sure does for me.
I loved this article on the subtle art of accepting a compliment, and it’s something I’m going to actively be conscious of from now on. Both in the way that I give compliments, but also in the way I receive them. I’m interested to know if you guys struggle with receiving compliments too. Let me know in the comments below!
