Complimentary Whine

I am uncomfortable receiving a compliment.

Most of you would say “What’s the problem? Who ever gives you a compliment anyway?” One part of me would say, You are evil! The other part would say, Too many. A very few number of people can constitute “too many” when you are uncomfortable receiving a compliment.

I know the easy response it to say ‘Thank You’, and I have no problem saying thanks for a number of other things that people do for me, yet that doesn’t seem to me like the best response for a compliment. What is the best response, you ask. I have no idea. That’s what I’m trying to tell you.

Personally, I think the best way to deal with it is for people to stop doing it. However, since it is easier to change one person than it is to change many, maybe you could help me with what the appropriate response(s) is/are for compliments.

(No, this is not an indirect method to fish for compliments from some people who would love to do things that make me uncomfortable. Keep your reverse-psychology to yourself…this time.)
