Compliments. How do you handle them?

When someone gives me a compliment I feel suspicious and awkward. It’s funny how someone can say something nice and make me feel really strange and questionable. I never know what to say or how to respond. I don’t want to seem like a snob or goody 2 shoes. It makes me feel on the spot and all twitchy. In my head, I question weather they really meant it or they were just making fun of me and really mean it as a sick joke? People do that, right!?

I start scanning my head for possible acceptable phrases to say. And what the hell do I do with my hands. I bet I look strange now. I bet if they really meant what they said, they would like to take it back now.

Yeah, thanks, you too. Avoid eye contact and fiddle with something…

This covers me. If you’re picking on me – I did it back. If it was nice – I was nice back at ya! 😛
