Them: “You look really nice today. That is a beautiful shirt.”
You: “What, this old piece of crap?”
It is ok, normal and acceptable to simply accept a compliment, instead of downplaying it. The simplest way to accept a compliment is to say thank you AND, if the situation warrants it, return a compliment to them.
Scarlet Says, continually downplaying compliments will ultimately lead to a decline in them..and who wants to live a life with no compliments? We surely don’t…
Until Next Time,
One thought on “What? This Old Thing…”
I totally understand this. I think when folks compliment us there is a natural tendency to be shy. I discovered you shouldn’t be shy and downplay your clothes. Right on Scarlet!
