smurf  I've been wanting to bring this up. There was a post where I received a reply from Green Grove. He said some very nice things to me and I had tears running down my face. I wondered to myself, "what are the tears about?" I realized at that moment that there is no one in my life that gives me praise. No one tells me I'm a nice person. No one tells me I do a great job with my kids. I never hear anything good from anyone.
 
Do any of you have someone in your life that says nice things to you? I don't mean someone who loves you. I have that. I mean someone who recognizes the difference you make, notices your kind heart, or thanks you for a job well done?
 
I want to thank Green Grove and all the others on here who have given encouragement to members. Your words may not mean that much to you, but to the person reading them, they mean the world.
 
Thank you

Very good post Aries8.......Yes I do have people in my life who recognize all that I do. I am blessed with wonderful people that I work for and they always give me praise. I feel in that way I am truly blessed, not everyone has that. Something important for us all to remember.

It is something we need to remember. I'm going to begin telling the people in my life how much of a difference they make. It's very important to receive that praise.

I'm so glad you are told those wonderful things! They really make a difference in our lives.

Awwww. . . Darn it :) You made me cry Aries :) I am so glad that I made you feel good about yourself because you are just such a wonderful person and all of us need to hear that praise and feel loved my friend. . . And remember that I am the type of person that does not say something without truly meaning it :)

***************

This is such a great topic as well!

I have been lucky through my life to receive praise from some good friends/family and you all that has counterbalanced the "flip" negative side my father (and others) was towards me growing up :) Without wonderful people like you great folks in my life, I would be lost right now, because ever since I went down with my health, everyone kinda disappeared because I have isolated myself to focus on my recovery from this dd. . . It was a hard choice to make but I needed to narrow the circle to only include my real friends and family that give as much to me as I always give to them :)

I feel that this mutual respect, praise, love, affection, etc. is so important to everyone's lives, so thank you Aries for bringing this up for all of us to ponder :)
Much Love, Hugs, Peace & Comfort . . . Your Bro . . . Sam :)

Dear Aries,
I hope I at sometime I gave you some praise..............
 
I am so proud of all of the members of HealingWell and for all they do for each others.
 
I know what you mean, praise lifts you up and makes you feel good.  I have always done better on praise versus criticism. How ever I know I am sensitive by nature and I try to take constructive criticism in the good will it is given.  I know I don't do this very well.
 
 
You have my respect and  you deserve praise for who you are and how much you contribute in your caring posts to the members of this family.
Bless you my friend,

Kitt

When I was a Junior in high school, there was going to be a class field trip to go to Washington D.C. I live in Missouri, so this was a very expensive trip... Too expensive. I really wanted to go, but my Grandma didn't have the money...

I worked hard to try and earn up enough money to go on this field trip... And I was doing pretty good....

But then... My aunt stole all of the money I had earned... :(... (It was the first time she had stolen money from me... she usually steals from my Grandma)... There would've been no way I could've earned enough money in time to go on the trip...

:(... I told my history teacher that I wouldn't be able to go... I told her that my money had been stolen... She knew I had worked hard earning that money... (I had even done a few errands for her to earn money)... She felt very bad for me.....

As it got closer and closer to trip time, I continued to feel dejected about it... I had never been outside of Missouri in my entire life... and I had never wanted something so much before...

The organizer of the trip (not my history teacher) pulled me aside one day... He told me to be sure that I pack and everything for the trip. He told me that teachers (who wanted to remain anonymonous) had donated money so that I could go on the trip.

I was shocked... and... so happy. That was the nicest thing that had ever been done for me in my whole life. Even now, it still brings tears to my eyes to think about it.

The field trip was the best one I had ever had in my whole life... I got to see so many things... I even got to go INSIDE the White House!

And besides just donating so that I could go on the trip.... they had also donated a little spending money, so that I could buy a few souvenirs. I am still amazed by their kindness... I feel like I couldn't do enough to thank them...
I think I am being picked on by life, sometimes. But's that okay. Life and I are good buddies... I know life doesn't mean no harm. It just is the way it is. I can accept that.

Celey, do you keep in touch with the some of the teachers from your high school? That was a heart warming story you told. I'm so glad you were able to go. You deserved it!

Green Grove, you are a very special person. I hope you never doubt yourself. Keep feeling positive and confident.

Kitt, you have gotten me through a lot of difficult moments. Know that you are making a difference, one person at a time.

I try to keep in touch, but it is difficult due to the fact that I do not have transportation to go see them, the fact that my phone is Prepaid and I often run out of minutes.... and also... they're very busy, and often do not think about checking their email... And I definitely wouldn't want to seem like I'm bothering them...

I still get all worked up thinking of what they did for me... I've always loved school... even before then... I got made fun of a lot by other kids, but.... The teachers always treated me with respect... I didn't get that kind of respect at home... and they were always so encouraging, too. They have really made a difference in my life.
I think I am being picked on by life, sometimes. But's that okay. Life and I are good buddies... I know life doesn't mean no harm. It just is the way it is. I can accept that.
