  • I wonder why some people are so reluctant to receive a compliment. It is like you are nearly offending them. There are two types of women. The ones that when you say “what a beautiful shoes you have." they will reply” Oh, they are very cheap only 12 US$ at a special.” Another one would respond to” What a lovely shirt you wear today. “It was 7us$ at the market. I always say that beauty does not have a price, and that sometimes expensive things can be ugly, as something inexpensive could be very unique. I always say to them as well.” I am telling you how beautiful the things are, I am not asking for the price that for me is irrelevant. They want to become small in front of people’s eyes by pretending poverty or that they never can afford to buy something nice even If they can.
    The others are the opposite of the balance. They will give you information without asking:” I bought my last sport car for 1 million or a just had my face done for 10.000 us$ or I got this shirt at Armani for 3.000 us$. They want to become bigger in front of the world and put a price tag to everything they talk about.
    This not just limited to material things but to themselves. If you say” how nice you look today” they will reply “No, I am too fat" “I am too thin” “I look terrible. “ I wonder why this is an extraordinary behaviour mostly in women. Why they cannot accept a lovely compliment with smile and just say "thanks"
