It was a while ago when I asked. Maybe I was expecting more of a pause between Q: Do I make you feel appreciated and A: No.
Now – a month later – there’d be a pause before answering: perhaps it would be a different answer; at least I think so.
Making someone feel appreciated is more than just talking to them. It’s your actions, the amount of time you give them, the thought you put into what you do. If you’re allowed to make someone else feel like they’re being taken for granted, it’s human nature to do so. Or at least, it’s my nature.
It’s only by making repeated decisions to put the other person first that you make any progress to make them feel appreciated. I’m hoping that I’ll continue to make those decisions.
