I have always had a serious issue with taking compliments and find it so extremely awkward every time it happens. It doesn't matter if it's a compliment on my looks or on my skills, or on my personality, it's just so uncomfortable. I never know what to answer in order to not sound cocky and/or stupid. WHat do you say?
Well, "Thanks!" seems to be the best thing... This is a really helpful video for all of us who feel stupid when receiving a compliment.
