Lack of Appreciation
Appreciation is defined by Google as “the recognition and enjoyment of the good qualities of
someone or something”.
Most people are so awesome even when they only do routine things. Rarely do they receive the
appreciation they deserve.
Many are neglected and unacknowledged. I fully understand them and how they feel. Lack of
admiration, lack of appreciation, leaves a void in peoples lives. People deserve better!
I know a guy who works like hell to support his wife and children.
She's a stay at home mom with five children at home. The youngest is about two years old.
He works for a communication company and puts in many hours to pay the bills and buy the
In my opinion, he is not appreciated as much as he should be. The way he contributes and does
everything asked, I do believe he appreciates his wife adequately. Of course that is only my
Good school teachers are rarely appreciated as much as they should be. My admiration for a
person who can teach children without squashing their enthusiasm is very high.
Though I can say there were only a few teachers that I appreciated when I was in school. There
were several that certainly tried very hard to help me learn. I don't think I ever expressed my
Good service is very valuable and should be thoroughly admired and appreciated. I treat my
servers as equals and I really notice them. I smile and talk with them. I also tip well where
Very often service people are under paid and under appreciated. I find it interesting that people
will tip a taxi driver and yet totally don't tip Uber and Lyft drivers who make far less money and
normally do a stellar job of saving riders time and money.
When you are in the company of friends, ignoring them and talking on your cellphone is not only
rude, it really tells your friends they are not appreciated.
Playing games on your cellphone is even worse as that is totally an unimportant addiction.
I try not to use my cell phone when not necessary to business or other immediately important
things. I never play games when anyone is around.
My friends, my fellow workers, are there with me and deserve my admiration and appreciation for
the company and production they do.
Failure to admire and appreciate people tends to tell them they are not important. It tells them you
do not appreciate them being around.
The Value of Communication
Electronics, People out of Communication
Notice those people that are around you. They are all interesting. They are all important. They all
have their own challenges in life. They are all doing the very best they can.
You should appreciate them for their efforts and successes.
To give a different view, what do you do that should NOT be appreciated? When should people
ignore you? When should their cell phone be more important than you are?
So just keep that in mind and smile at people.
There are precepts that directly relate to this article in The Way To Happiness:
Precept #19. TRY NOT TO DO THINGS TO OTHERS THAT YOU WOULD NOT LIKE THEM TO
DO TO YOU
Precept #20. TRY TO TREAT OTHERS AS YOU WOULD WANT THEM TO TREAT YOU
Precept #21. FLOURISH AND PROSPER
The Way To Happiness.
I use The Way To Happiness as a moral guide in my day to day life. It is not a religious text. The
people I know that have read it, all agree with its precepts.
You might give it a try. You can watch the videos on my site about them or go to their site. They
are very well done.
If you need gentle assistance, contact me. I am trained in resolving conflicts very successfully.
Helping someone spot what condition(s) and what the solutions are to handle them is exactly
what I do in life.
Improving the conditions of others is my destination and purpose in life. A little true knowledge can
go a long way. I do not ask that you believe anything!
Routinely I say #EverythinWill_B_OK!I believe that is true!
Also, “A person is only as valuable as he aids others in their games of survival!”
