Receive Compliments Well.
When receiving a compliment, take “thank you” up a notch by adding “that means a lot.” Or you can ditch the thanks all together and give a return compliment such as “aren’t you so sweet!” or “that’s very kind of you to say!” When someone says something nice to you, you want to make it a pleasant experience. People usually say nice things because they think nice things about the person to whom they are paying a compliment. They probably want to make you feel better about yourself. If you express your gratitude in a way that ends up praising the other person, you’ll make them feel better about themselves. They’ll be back to shower you with more compliments soon.
