Insults and compliments: a 2 way street?

May 30, 2010 § Leave a comment

Are insults and compliments given or received?

If someone makes a comment that insults me, is it an insult, even though it wasn’t intended as one?

Similarly, if someone gives me a compliment, but I don’t feel it, is it stll a compliment?

Do they have to be BOTH given and received, or can it be one or the other?

Surely an insult that is actually taken as a compliment, is neither? Or both?

Help?
