Gaining Respect And Appreciation
Appreciation comes in various forms and the way we appreciate or being appreciated by others is different from each other. Sometimes, we have one or two appreciation from different people at different times for what we have done and these always makes us happy. Sometimes, due to some situation or circumstances, some of us feel we are not appreciated as much as we would like especially, if we are a dedicated worker, or committed to our relationship, or diligent with our studies and our ways.
There are so many things which make us sometimes unhappy and unappreciated for the fact that some people take advantage of us at work, at home, school, in the society and sometimes it affects our personal relationships.
Sometimes you feel that you are being used and manipulated one way or another especially when you are helping or doing something for someone and they can’t even say thank you. there are other times that we are not happy especially when we put the needs of others first and still, we are not appreciated, this really makes us sad.
“Respect they say begets respect”, Everybody wants to be appreciated, respected no matter what we do and how we go about it. We always want our boss, friends, colleagues, family to appreciate and respect us for what we do and whom we are. These make us wonder if we have found someone, people, friends, and acquaintances who appreciate us.
Sometimes we find it difficult appreciating our friends, parents, boss, and colleagues until we realize their value and purpose in our different lives especially when we realize a new found appreciation for having good parents who put us first and raised us up the proper way.
Gaining a new found appreciation from your boss, friends, colleagues, parents and other people of interest in your life, especially for whom we are and for what we have become makes us happy. The fact that you have gained respect because you reciprocated it and respect yourself at the same time by maintaining your integrity is a new found way of earning some respect from others, making it possible for you to be appreciated.
There are times that we make promises that we do not keep, but whenever we do our best to keep to promises made, we gain a new found appreciation from people around us. Gaining a new found appreciation and respect is mostly based on how we add value to the lives of others, our kindness and giving a helping hand. be smart and try as much as you can to encourage others in all their efforts and acknowledge others for whatever good they have done.
