Those of us who make an effort to kill our egos and exhibit humility struggle with how to handle compliments.
It’s tempting to be humble and turn a compliment down, but this simultaneously shuns their words (insulting you) and tells them they are wrong (insulting them). This is an inconsiderate conversation killer.
Here’s a simple response to replace “Naaaaah” or “I disagree” that allows you to remain humble, validate their words, and express gratitude:
“Thank you. That’s very kind of you.” (Simple, right?)
