When someone values and notices us amidst our fast-paced life, we feel important and good. There is something about being valued that feels good - if we can only sense the true feeling.
Children need to feel valued so that they can gradually internalize self-valuing.. We develop our sense of self-worth from how we're perceived by others. If we receive positive words and gestures, we feel good about ourselves.
As adults, we also thrive on positive feedback from our environment. Being valued and appreciated help us reinforce a positive sense of well-being.
One way to create connection is to give others what they desire. We can extend generosity by noticing positive things about others and finding some creative way to convey our positive sentiments toward them.
Feeling appreciated strengthens the bond between people. It helps satisfy our longing for healthy attachment
