How do you respond to a comment that puts you in comparison to someone else and in that comparison you are the star?

Can we call that a compliment?

”I know Malika is such a workaholic, you take life slowly and calmly, and that is great”

”Your hair/voice is beautiful than hers”

Is a compliment a compliment when it stems from comparison and what do you do when the object of the comparison is right there with you?

How do you deflect the awkwardness?

Pretend you didn’t notice and move on even though you notice a shift in the other person’s demeanor?

How do you receive compliments like this?
