How to take a compliment:
When someone gives you a compliment simply say, ” Thank you”. The end. =)
When someone gives you a compliment and you don’t immediately say thanky you but go into a long reason as to why the compliment was unnecessary, it make the other person feel unimportant. It is also very uncomfortable when giving a compliment and the other person won’t accept it, so you end up basically shoving the compliment down their throats (so to speak). It just makes me want to not ever compliemnt that person again. Remember that regarldess of how you feel about yourself or something you have done, other people may think it is great and it is polite to show event the slightest bit of gratitude towards.
This concludes our lesson for the day.
PS. If someone is giving you a reverse compliment, (where it sounds like a compliment but they are in fact insulting you), feel free to say whatever comes to you.
