Why Can't Some People Just Take Compliments?

:iconpoetboi:

I mean, we all know that one person who has to make everything a hardship.

"You look good today."
"Oh no, when I left the house I looked like shit, you're just saying that to be nice; Don't pity me, asshole!"

In Japan, it's extremely rude to say 'thank you' to compliments given to you. You're supposed to say "oh no, I'm not <whatever the hell you complimented them on>" or "No no I have a long way to go."

Maybe it's because they're full of self loathing (like me) and find it difficult to understand why people would pay them a complement because they believe themselves undeserving

People are insecure, not to mention how it's pretty much considered a virtue (especially for women) to be self-deprecating. When someone says "You look good in that dress." Most are raised to answer along the lines of "Oh no, this old thing is just what I had in the closet." no matter the frantic shopping and grooming that led up to it.

We're not supposed to agree that we look good. That would make us shallow and up ourselves.

I wanted to, but my morals held my hand and said no.

Fuck you, morals.

That's because morals don't even begin to describe how awesome I am. If you are awesome, then fuck morals! Shoot them in the head and leave.

They:"No I looked like shit :("
You:"Well fine then, you look like shit"

Just make things awkward if you compliment, though some take it well, I guess.

because if you talk about how good you look, you're a narcissistic asshole and if you complain about how shitty you look, you're fishing for compliments. i mean, one could always say "thanks" and move on but some people don't know how to respond to stuff like that.

People don't take compliments because they're either ugly, complete pussies, or really, really emotional.

I guess it's normal for people to deny compliments unless the person is sure he/she is attractive or has an over-sized ego.
