But then when you show gratitude

The person downplays it and acts like it’s no big deal. They wanna keep you selfish and put in the corner.

Who, Sheri? Many, but mainly my mother.

I was taught that it is polite to deflect any praise or gratitude, and that it is conceited to accept compliments. I know now that isn’t correct, and I am working to do better. But I think a lot of us were yelled at for accepting compliments too easily.
