A Kind Word Helps Two

Mon, Jun 25, 2012 11:58 PM PDT

Just wanted to write you a quick email to tell you that I love you!
I know I've said this before, but it just feels so
good to tell you again :D And again! :)"

She smiled her widest smile when reading the email. All the hardship of the day, all the trouble and worries seemed to melt away just because of the kind words in the e-mail. How good it was to have someone that cared!"

How many of us have the luxury of kind words spoken to us recently, let alone in daily basis?

Of all the species in the world, human is unique for its ability to emotionally support and/or affect each other by words. Simply put, whatever people say affect us. This is the reason why some people take delight in verbal harrasment/bullying, but this is also the reason why a simple "Thank you" or can easily brighten our otherwise miserable day.

It is always a pleasure to deal with a polite person, one that uses the magic words appropriately: "Thank you", "please", "excuse me". I assume it is because it makes us feel appreciated. If so, what about genuine compliments and encouragement? That must be more potent even. Wouldn't it be grand to know someone think what we do or what we are is good? Wouldn't it be wonderful to know we are not alone and someone actually care?

It's only natural that someone that gets a healthy dose of kind (polite) words and encouragement will fare better than the ones that don't. He/she will have more self esteem, more positive way of thinking, and will appreciate and respect other people more. Yet with all the obvious advantage kind words are still quite hard to find these days, and I suspect it will be harder still as more and more people learn/adapt to live without others. But unlike other things in life, words are completely totally free. It's actually funny because we gain nothing by not saying [kind words to people], and gain so much by saying (i.e. The receiver's good feeling of him/herself, and also your own good feeling). Yet somehow our mouth is sealed tighter than the clams.

For that, I dare you to say something nice to others. One of the magic words, a small compliment, all genuine and straight from your heart. Say that, and watch the magic happen. See his/her face lit up, watch the smile bloom, observe the twinkle in his/her eyes and the obvious excitement. Congratulations, you just made his/her day.

Here's my line to you readers: Thank you for reading this, thank you for spending your time to ponder on my thoughts. And for the ones that take up my dare: Thank you for trying. I hope it makes you feel good about youself :). Man, it feels good saying all that! I really do love you, readers. Many thanks for reading!
