"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." Maya Angelou
How can we touch people's lives in a positive way instead of negative? How can we be that person who helps others up instead of pushing them down?
One thing we need to do is to find happiness in others success. We need to look outside our wants and needs and give to others. We need to think of others feelings. We need to be a better us.
As we go about each day of we could do one small or big thing to help someone else we could touch there life positively. Maybe complimenting someone on their hair or clothing, or a project they did a good job on.
Listening is another thing that lets others know you care. But you really have to listen not just space off in your own thoughts. Care about what they are saying and respond appropriately. Sometimes people need to get something's of their chest. It helps to have someone they can go to that really cares about them.
Spending time with someone. Time is often a hot commodity. We are often running from here to there and it can mean a lot to someone when you take time out of your day for them. Even if you only have a short amount of time the gesture can mean the world.
Give more of yourself. We often hold back in fear of getting hurt. If we let someone really know who we are this can uplift them. It gives them confidence that someone trusts and cares for them.
Learn to care for others more than yourself. We as humans can be extremely selfish at times but we also can be completely selfless. If we can find more time for selflessness we will receive just as those we are serving receive.
Don't judge! When we can love someone just as they are without judgement we can make a huge difference in someone's life.
We should always keep our standards high but that doesn't mean we don't treat everyone with respect and kindness. Every person has a place and reason to be here on this earth. We should always help those around us feel at home and peaceful whenever they are around us.
We can each strive everyday to be better and leave a positive impression on those around us.
