#TalkThursdays: Show 'em what they're worth!

Hey there,
We have another #TalkThursday and we're going to chat about the value of people.

This post is a related to something I experienced a some time ago and I felt like I should write a little about it.
People feeling undervalued is what has been on my mind lately. Sometimes, I feel as though we can neglect those around us, or we forget how to treat the average Joe.
In a friendship or relationship, people like to feel like there is substance in it and no one really likes to feel the sense of unrequited love.

'You don't know what you've got till it's gone'.....Please don't let this be you, don't neglect so much, that you have to realise this!

There's just a few things I've noticed in people and myself and it's not so hard to pick up on what makes people feel special. If someone holds some value to you, show them.
From small to big things like:

Scheduling time out of your week to have a catch up, whether virtual or meeting in a cafe.

Making special effort to remember their birthday, anniversary, special days that hold significance to them.

Complimenting them when they deserve it and encouraging them when they're down and need it.

Offer to help, even if you may not really want to. Sacrifice something of yourself to see that person grow

As cheesy as it sounds, Don't be afraid to say those 3 words every now and again. Saying 'I love you', in it's many different variations, can really change the atmosphere and someones day

Learn the art of giving!
This does not always mean spending money, just spending time and giving yourself to that person is enough. Of course if you want to spend a little cash, go ahead, buy them something they've been needing, or better yet, an experience rather than material objects. Beautiful memories are worth a some time and effort. 

The point of this is to say that, if you have people around you, those that you love, respect or even those in relationships, always try and show them how much you value them, because at the end of the day, people like feeling special, knowing that they're important to you. It makes it easier when you're trying to build relationships. They now know that whatever love they give back, isn't in vein.

Now there is the point of loving without condition, loving the way God wants us to, but then there is also the fact that he created us for relationships, to be loving people and realistically,if you're constantly giving in a friendship (or form of relationship) and it's never reciprocated, you may get tired and burn out because nothing is being given back. That dampens the beauty of relationship.

'treat others the way you want to be treated'

There's so much more that could be said, but the bottom line is show those you hold dear, what they're worth to you. 

Peace and Love readers.
