It’s a sad fact that receiving a genuine compliment can make some people feel really uncomfortable. So here's a few useful tips on taking a compliment well. #NationalComplimentDay
Don’t bat a compliment away like it’s a Wimbledon tennis ball with words like “it was nothing” or “I’m not, really”. Absorb your greatness in the eyes of another. You deserve it. #NationalComplimentDay
Try not to wriggle out of your psychological discomfort. Be mindful of the moment. Someone just said that you’re [insert something awesome here]. Isn’t that wonderful? #NationalComplimentDay
Feeling awkward receiving a compliment can actually make you less likely to give one to someone else. So start flexing your flattery muscle today. #NationalComplimentDay
Remember, accepting a compliment doesn’t mean accepting inappropriate behavior. A compliment should be sincere, respectful, appropriate and unconditional. If it’s not then you have every right to reject it. Know your worth. #NationalComplimentDay
“It’s so wonderfully vitalising for us ordinary mortals to send and receive such little reminders of one another’s humanity - especially in a culture where it’s easier to be a critic than a celebrator." - Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1855 #NationalComplimentDay
