Someone gives you a compliment.
Do you take it in?
Or someone might say "I hate you" in the sweetest way and with humor.
What they really mean is "I love you", "I like it when you do that".
The hints are in the tone of voice or body language.
If you receive only a text message with these words, you might not be able to energy read the intention and be unable to know if it's shadow or light.
