Therapeutic Word of the Day: Thanks

“A simple word that can brighten someone’s day. Sometimes, a word can be better than a gift.”

One way to judge the character of a person is how they treat people they do not know. A good place to test this is at restaurants and stores. While many people are polite and kind, others are rude, mean and nasty. I view it this way: if they are willing to treat a random stranger with so much contempt, imagine how they treat someone they know. One way I like to evaluate people is how they treat others. Someone can fake being nice and kind if it gets them something they want. If there is no gain or benefit, the real person may come through. As being polite and kind has no long term benefit, someone who is not a good person will not be.

I remember working in retail long ago when I was a teenager. I remember it being a thankless job as many customers were rude and nasty. I remember the customers who were kind and said: “thank you.” I remember it making my day better, a little more bearable. It takes such little effort to say these two words. If you are not in the habit of saying them, eventually you will be alone and wish someone was around to say them to you.
