Thanks Lisa. In my earlier years I recieved many compliments, often they took me by surprise because they were offered after I had done something that took no effort on my part. Later I realized it was those same things that helped me move forward in work. I've learned what's easy for me may not be easy to someone else and vice-versa.
I have had to learn to just say thank you
Deb, I have never had a problem with false compliments, etc. But do recognize what I call 'suck-ups' when I hear them. Thankfully they have not been geared towards me, I have no power whatsoever
