In today’s society, we are often bombarded with compliments. While it is nice to be recognized for our accomplishments, sometimes we are left feeling unsure of how to respond. The next time you are caught off guard by a compliment, try one of these responses!
What Does “You’re Too Kind” Mean?
When someone says “you’re too kind,” they usually mean one of two things. Either they are genuinely grateful for your act of kindness and don’t feel that they deserve it, or they are politely declining your offer.
If you’re not sure which meaning the person intends, you can always ask. For example, you might say something like, “Thank you so much for your kind offer, but I’m afraid I’ll have to decline.” This way, you’ve shown that you appreciate their offer while also making it clear that you won’t be taking them up on it.
How Do I Respond To “You’re Too Kind”?
If someone tells you that you’re too kind, how do you respond? First, consider the intent behind the words. If the person is sincere and simply trying to pay you a compliment, then thank them graciously. However, if the person is being sarcastic or critical, then you may want to respond with something like, “I’m just trying to be a good person.”
