Compliments given are always a boost to our ego. Take them lightly with a pinch of salt, but know that a compliment has come your way. Work upon that compliment. It is always good to have compliments. Dont let the compliment go to your head. Be calm and reasonable. Compliments can come from well wishers as well as no gooders. So beware.

It depends on how self-confident I am feeling at the moment. On a good day, I will smile and say thank you. On a less certain day, I will be more uncomfortable.
