“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
Day Five: Feel
You need to surround yourself with people who make you feel good about yourself. It’s so simple, so obvious…but how many of us do this? Do you instead fall into that self-destructive habit of spending time with people who make you feel drained or down?
I get that we will always encounter people who don’t make us feel good. In some cases, like family members, it is hard to get away. But please try to make more time for the people who make you feel good.
Also, do you make others feel good about themselves? I bet you do, and doing it more will raise your self-esteem more.
Two tasks for today – firstly, who makes you feel good about yourself? Name that person. And whoever that person is, spend more time with them. Secondly, who did you do this for recently? Who felt good because of you?
