Accepting Appreciation

October 5, 2013

…is also something that doesn’t happen nearly often enough.

When someone says “Thank you”, we tend to deflect by saying “It’s nothing” or “No worries”.  But didn’t we all learn as kids that the polite thing to say is “You’re welcome”?

Too often we think we are doing others a favor by being “humble”, when in fact we are not doing any good for anyone at all, and this is a perfect example.  Who benefits by our refusal to accept appreciation?  Certainly not us, and certainly not the person who is offering it.

Remember the rules for politeness that you learned as a kid.  They still apply now that you’re an adult.
