Is it possible to appreciate the rude rascals in your life? Of course

How much do you appreciate the people you meet? Feeling appreciation for the ones you love is just as valuable as feeling appreciation for everyone else that you meet. No matter who it is, it might be your boss, a stranger on the bus or a chashier at a supermarket – begin practicing looking for things you like with everyone you meet. Yes, even the ones who hurt you.

Why is appreciation so valuable? Because not only will you begin to change your view on life to a more positive perspective, you will also begin to feel better.

I would like to begin practicing this right now. This week I interacted with a person who was really rude – but that is not how I wish to remember this person. Therefore I will think of three things about him that I appreciate:

1) He is confident

2) He knows what he wants

3) He smiles a lot


Begin to practice looking for 3 things you like with everyone you meet. With time you will notice that you automatically see things you like in everyone you look at and everyone you interact with.

    I enjoyed this post! I aim to think this way as often as possible and find it helps me reduce my negative self-talk too. Added bonus! πŸ˜„
    Since reading Brene Brown’s books on vulnerability, I’ve taken a slightly different view when I encounter people who behave the way you describe. Instead of reframing my view of their behaviour, I end up wondering about their experiences in life and what they believe about themselves. I’m not sure it leads me to think more positively, but I’ve found it quite freeing when their difficult behaviour comes my way 😁

    Your words are wise young lady. Get bit by a snake once be careful not to entice him again to strike you. Using your own words learn to love yourself unconditionally.
    Save yourself before you can save others the nature of your creation, female. I am an old Texas Rattlesnake who used to be a scumbag. I speak with wisdom from life experience.
