The Power of Positive Feedback

I recently wrote about the importance of receiving — and how letting in good stuff is often more difficult than giving. But this is not to minimize the value and power of extending ourselves in generous ways to others.

How often have we felt devalued, unappreciated, and criticized? A basic human need is to be valued, seen, and appreciated. When this longing goes unmet — when our basic value and goodness are not recognized and reflected back to us — we may find it difficult to value and affirm ourselves.

  2. Thanks for the reminder-so many people are caught up in them- maybe religYOUin had the answer — called GIVING-I reckon mental health is a big part of the problem-especially the pill part of it- or psMYchology or psMYchiatry-when really-giving is/means everything to everyone.

  3. Goodsnitch is an entire business based on your principles. Encouraging people in 30 seconds etc. etc.
