Just say “Thank you!”

Written on October 5th, 2010 by sassymomone shout

Thank YouA compliment is an expression of praise, admiration, or congratulation.

So how do we respond to a compliment?

It is quite surprising how people struggle in receiving a compliment. How many times have anybody complimented you on your new haircut, your fabulous attire, or even the simplest “you look good today” and you have to tell them, ” “What do you want?” (”Anong kailangan mo?”) As if you don’t deserve to be complimented? That you think people will only compliment you when they need something from you. Sad isn’t it?

Funny how a simple “Thank you” is all you need to respond to this positive act of expression. Yet a lot of people tend to forget to say it and just shrug the compliment away. Either they are shy or just don’t how to react properly when given a compliment.

So next time someone tells you, “I love your hair!” , just say “Thank You.” That’s all it takes.
