It’s nice to be commended. It’s a sign that others have recognised your good efforts.
While it’s natural to feel a little embarrassed after being praised, you should never feel uncomfortable or burdened by a compliment.
Those around you may make ironic comments – wishing they were more like you. Let them. Their remarks, no matter how sarcastic, are a reinforcement of the praise.They hope to possess the qualities that you have been applauded for.
Other times the discomfort from being complimented is driven by your perception of what others think rather than reality. This reflects a lack of confidence that you need to overcome.
Next time you’re praised, accept it gracefully – it’s feedback that you’re on the right path. You don’t need to do anything differently or change. Continue to go about your business and do good.
