When you won the big case, she cheered.
When you got the award, he clapped the loudest.
When your name was in the newspaper, she bought 4 copies and clipped out the article.
The people we live with love us for who we are, not for what we achieve.
But the successes are heralded and make those we love proud.
So the awards are great, the accolades sublime.
We cannot forget, however, that sometimes all our partner or the people that we live with need us to do is …. empty the dishwasher, take out the trash or clean up after the kids.
Being consistent with the little help that we give to those that we love goes a long way towards strengthening relationships and minimizing resentments.
Daily support > award ceremonies every day of the week.
I think I’ll go make the kids some pancakes.
