Often times we find it sweet and inspiring if people around us compliment us for what we do. What do you do when people compliment you?

My inital reaction is to blush and to say ''no, im not really or your too nice but..'' and start to argue otherwise. However usually I stop myself and remember to just say thankyou as a compliment is a sincere gift. Even if I seem embarassed I still really appreciate compliments and they often make my day. Anything thing I do is give the person a sincere compliment right back. Perhaps kindness spreads and is contagious. Once you are made aware of positive attributes you see them in others.

when people give me compliment i always smile and say thank you. sometimes if the person that says it to me is a close friend, i will smile and make a joke of it, because maybe they are just having fun of me, which is really what happens sometimes with close friends.
