Words of Affirmation Matter
At the end of the day we all want to be seen and valued for who we REALLY are.
It can be a rare gift to give/receive words of affirmation not just for our appearance or role in life but for our character and how we show up in the world.
What words of deep appreciation would you like to receive?
What words of gratitude can you give others in your life?
We too rarely feel seen and valued for who we really are.
Expressing deep appreciation for these things is a gift we can give others.
Examples of Expressing Gratitude:
"I admire how you've navigated your difficult family relationships. I've learned how to set better boundaries because of it."
"I'm inspired by how dedicated you are to learning and growing in life. Thank you for being you!"
"I love how present you are with me and others. Thank you for showing us all how to REALLY show up."
"I appreciate how you totally embrace life with all your adventures. You inspired me!"
"It's a rare thing to be as vulnerable as we are with each other. Thank you for that gift."
"I deeply appreciate how consistent and reliable you are. You inspire me to be the same."
"I appreciate how down to earth and real you are. I can really be myself around you."
