Something that has worked really well in my relationships is being conscious about appreciating each other; making it a point to say “Thank you!” even when actions could have been assumed or expected.
Even if it’s someone’s “job” to take out the garbage or wash the dishes, it still feels good to be appreciated. And it creates connection where resentment could have started to build.
When I was recently asked why I care so much about men I felt more inspired to answer with gratitude and appreciation than I did with reasons.
So here is my first attempt to appreciate for men, from my heart to yours, for the things you may not be appreciated for.
