It’s a common enough phrase and I’m sure you’ve had it said to you many times. So many times in fact that your response becomes routine and automatic. ((Almost like saying “Bless you” or “Gesundheit” when someone sneezes.))
And this got me thinking about the responses and their effect on the flow of gratitude.
When you hear someone thank you, how do you respond?
Do you deflect the thanks by saying “it was nothing”?
Or possibly pass the thanks off by saying it was “no problem”?
Or do you accept the thanks and complete the flow of gratitude?
