The way you react to a compliment says a lot about how you value yourself. In general, for people with good self-esteem, being complimented on a job well done or being admired by others is a positive experience. It makes them feel accepted by others and increases their sense of well-being. However, for those with low self-esteem it does not have the same effect, they feel ashamed and look for ways to escape the situation. This is because the comment contradicts their view of themselves.
When receiving compliments:
Do not play it down
Do not question it
Do not give it back
Do not deny it
Say thank you
