“Praise is like sunlight to the human spirit: we cannot flower and grow without it.” Jess Lair
No matter what your situation in life, human beings require a humble amount of praise from time to time.
Whether we’re talking about relationships or careers, letting someone know that you appreciate their efforts, no matter how small, can many times be all we need to know that our lives have meaning and purpose.
Unfortunately I’ve noticed the frequency of criticisms seems to overwhelmingly outweigh the praise most people receive.
Why is it so easy for us to find fault in each other, but so incredibly difficult to hand out a complement every now and then?
People are doing wonderful things each and every day and just like a flower, how are we supposed to grow and evolve if we have no idea if what we’re doing means a damn?
Stop letting your own insecurities prevent you from praising someone who probably deserves it.
