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.
If you aren’t listening, the conversation doesn’t evolve. It’s just two people saying things they each already know at each other.
Some things are good for us to hear, even if they are things we already know.
Martin Pistorius was diagnosed as being brain dead. Yet he was conscious, alert, and could see & hear everything that was happening around him. No one realised for 11 years.
