When’s the last time you acknowledged someone for doing something great for you?
Something that we often forget to do is give recognition to people for being great. We are more than happy to tell them when they do something wrong and how they can improve, but we often forget to extend our love to others to really tell them that they’re important to you.
It’s something that’s extremely easy to forget about but it’s something that can dramatically change the way people treat you.
When it comes to the people we spend the most time around, we tend to make friends with people that we have the most agreement with, the people that have similar values and ideas and sense of humour. People that don’t make us feel stupid or disagree with the way we live our lives.
By being agreeable and acknowledging that we agree with the way that people are doing things we create stronger relationships. It can be verbally telling them and thanking them, by physically hugging them and expressing love in different ways, at the end of the day it’s all the same.
Often the reason that people lose a relationship with someone whether it’s a significant other, family member or friend, the main reason that things don’t work out is because people fall out of agreement. It can be hard to stay in agreement and have the same values as other people.
You don’t need to constantly agree with what everyone else is saying, you need to stay true to yourself, what you do need to keep in mind is that by not finding a way to agree with someone and acknowledge them for who they are or the things they’ve done, you’re asking for them to disappear from your life.
Think of other mammals such as a dog, if you come home every day and get upset with your dog for what they’ve done and spend no time playing with them and petting them, they’ll eventually be afraid of you coming home and will start to avoid you.
On the other hand if you pet them and love them and teach them to not do bad things, they’ll love you for the rest of their life.
Yes, we are bit different since we aren’t a dog, but we have a lot of similarities. We both breathe air, eat food, walk around and want love.
It doesn’t take a lot to acknowledge someone, sometimes it’s just saying to someone that you appreciate them, maybe you haven’t hugged a loved one in a while.
Spend some time making people feel agreed with and I’m certain you’ll grow your friendships, people will start acknowledging you more and your life in general will be more uplifting.
This being said, I’d like to thank everyone and anyone who reads my blogs, it’s a place for me to unload my thoughts and opinions on the world and the responses I get always warm my heart and drive me to do more. Keep being great and I’ll keep doing what I can to help you become your best self.
