I have trouble accepting compliments for things outside of my control. Some examples might be, "Your state is so beautiful" or "Your husband is such a great guy."
I have a hard time saying thank you. It feels like I'm taking credit for something that really has nothing to do with me, yet I hear other people say thank you for these kinds of comments. I feel like I'm being impolite if I don't thank people, but it feels awkward saying thank you. I prefer saying, "Yes, this is a beautiful area" rather than thanks.
How do you deal with these kinds of compliments? How do you expect others to respond?
