Welcome to this second Question Of The Week For Season 7! It's true that gratitude works in both ways... we can give thanks or be the lucky recipient of it! This week we are going to see a few things.. One thing that will be very interesting to see is if we like to show and receive gratitude in the same ways, or different ways. Im also very curious if we all like to share gratitude in similar ways, or many many different ways. It will be so interesting, especially since i think it can be one of many sources of conflict! One obvious example is someone who has done a lot for a friend but didn’t feel like they were appreciated for it. This happens to me all the time, and is something that has always made me question my motives. In the end i have personally learned to help people for the love if it and not to expect anything in return. I do appreciate a thank you, of course, or a smile goes a very long way with me!
Your answer to this question can depend on circumstance.. and when you answer you can feel free to expand or focus on one side of the gratitude dynamic. You may have ways of showing appreciation when something small is done versus a huge sacrifice or help from a complete stranger. Maybe you never even thought about the ways in which show appreciation, so now is a great time to check in and see!
Whatever you have to say, I appreciate you for showing up.. so many of you! I have been asking so many weird and wonderful questions for 4 years now.. can you believe it.. and every week I fully appreciate the many and wonderful posts you all share..
