Today is a good day to tell someone something they already know.
Tell them why they are valuable.
Tell them that you love them.
Tell them why you love them, and what you love about them.
Tell them how they enrich your life.
Remind them of their goals, and that you are supporting them.
We humans have our ups & down. We can sometimes get caught up in spiralling thoughts and lose our focus. We don’t see the forest for the trees.
We need to encourage each other. We need to help each other refocus when things aren’t going our way.
It may seem to ourselves that we are stating the obvious, but it can be really helpful to someone who has lost sight of the bigger picture.
I never tire of hearing the same people say to me “I love you”, even if they say it on a daily basis. It’s a good thing for me to hear.
For others, there may be other words that they need to hear regularly. Perhaps “you’re doing a good job”. Perhaps “thank you for everything you do for me, I really appreciate it”. Perhaps “you’re fun” or “you’re beautiful”.
Don’t make your conversations bland. Make them intriguing, make them fun, make them impactful. But also make them uplifting & sincere.
You never know when someone needs to be assured of something they already know.
Food should always taste better than it looks. Likewise, people should always be more interesting than they appear.
How we start a conversation often decides its trajectory. So maybe you should rethink how you greet people.
Even when you can't solve a friend's problem, talking about it helps.
Conversation will make or break a first date. How can you take the pressure off of thinking of things to talk about?
Do you use your words to make a positive impact or a negative one? Have you listened to yourself lately?
What should you talk about when you know a conversation is only going to be brief?
If you want to have a rewarding conversation with someone, never ask this question.
There is a reason we are social. It's to be known.
Last week, we discussed the importance of not interrupting others. But sometimes an interruption can actually enhance a conversation.
You hate being interrupted, but do you interrupt others?
