Can I give you a compliment please?

When someone compliments you how do you react?

Do you say thank you?

Do you shrug or do you discount the compliment altogether?

Someone compliments your dress and you reply with “oh this is old thing, I’ve had it for ages”. They didn’t ask anything about your dress they just said they liked it. Someone comments that you are looking really well or perhaps your skin is lovely and clear and you start to feel uncomfortable, perhaps your face flushes or you find yourself looking away.

What’s so wrong with accepting a compliment these days?

Is our reaction based on who is delivering the compliment?

Is it based on where you are at the time?

Is our response affected by what we’re wearing and how comfortable we are in the outfit?

Or perhaps the time of day has an influence?
