How do I show gratitude?

I show my gratitude in my own way.

I am not that show or as expressive with my feelings. I am the reserved type. You won't see me repaying back what was given to me but that doesn't mean that I don't give something in return. I do but not in the same form or same value as what you gave me. Also, I don't give right away.

That doesn't mean that I am not grateful.

I support my friends in whatever endeavors they take. I am there for moral support. What I can't give in terms of finances, I do it in terms of being there for my friends. I can be there for them and do things for them and with what I can.

I remember again when our house burned down. A lot of people have helped us and we were so grateful for that. Right now, I don't know how to give back to them. My friends have also helped and to this day, I still don't know how to repay their kindness but I now some day, some way I can be of help to them too and I hope that it will be so much more.

Whenever I visit my friends, their homes are always open and there they welcome me and offer a place to stay. In return, I would take them out and treat them. That is just an example of how I show my gratitude. Sometimes if they want some things from our city, then I would buy that for them and send it to them without charge. Favors like that are some of my ways of showing my gratitude. It's not always that I get to treat them anyway.

Friend understand that we don't always have to give something in return. As long as they were able to help you and be there for you, then that's all that matters.

List of people I love and who love me in return.

I think it would be enough to say that my partner, my family, friends and relatives are the people who I love and love me in return.

We don't need a lot of people in our lives. What matters most are those that love you and you love them too.

Having said that, there are those that I am grateful for and love. It's the people that show kindness and extend their help not just to me but to other people as well. I love those who are considerate and are after the welfare and benefit of the many not just themselves. It's the humble people that really earns my respect. You don't need to be rich and famous. I love others more because of their character.

I love those who do more than what is their job requires and are passionate about what they do. I also love those who have faith in the ability of others and who believe in what others can do. I love those who uplift others instead of bringing them down.

I love those who accept me for who I am and who I am not.

So technically, it is now Monday here.

Jelena posted about a color challenge that I think would be great idea to adopt it here in this platform. You can read it here.

If you don't have any idea what to write, then choose a color and talk about that.

Each day of the week corresponds a color and they are as follows:

  • Monday RED

  • Tuesday ORANGE

  • Wednesday YELLOW

  • Thursday GREEN

  • Friday BLUE

  • Saturday INDIGO

  • Sunday PURPLE

If you notice my lead image, that's a bottlebrush flower taken during one of my walks. I used that as an entry to a contest in Hive.

So for Monday's color, I chose that as my lead image.

I am also grateful to the people who never gets tired on supporting me. The fact that they aren't asking for any returns is just so amazing. I don't know how to repay them but someday, I know I can.

Indeed, sometimes it's not an obligation to pay back those people who give and share things with you. But because of being grateful, urges us to give back, and showing that we appreciate those help really matters to them.

In the bible we are taught to be grateful, not only with God but with everything that surrounds us, to love nature is to thank it for everything it gives us every day, to love our friends is to thank them for their friendship. to love goes hand in hand with gratitude, if you love it is easy to return what they give us, not in the same way but with gestures of love and kindness, with affection and much more.

You're right, maybe it's not an obligation to pay when they give you something, but I think it feels beautiful to give back to the person who took the time to give you something that was perfect for you at the time. on the other On the other hand, you're right, I think I only love my parents and my brothers, oh and my grandmother.

There are so many ways to show our gratitude towards the people who have helped us. It can be in a form of food, acts of service, and etc. We have the same liking in people, Kuya. I like people who cares for others and not just for their own welfare. They are the ones that are worthy of love and to be treasured. 💖

Same with me dun sa nauna, pag may gumagawa ng pabor para sakin. Ang hirap din maging showy para sa mga taong di sanay sa tao ee. Pero, minimake sure ko naman na mapapasalamatan ko sila ng malala. And, minsan kapag kaya sinusuklian ko din ng kung anong naibigay nila sakin nong time na ako ang humingi ng pabor.

Showing gratitude doesn't have to be the same way that they give us, it can be in any other form but the best thing remains that we show gratitude for whatever someone does for us.

I also don't give the exact value of what was given to me but in my own way, I show my gratitude so I don't look like someone being ungrateful. In fact, one way I show gratitude is being grateful with a sincere heart what was given to me. I think that is the best too.

To be grateful does not mean that you should give to the same ones who have given to you but on the contrary repeat with a good deed to others what you have received as good. That the righteous judge will always see for you and you will receive many more blessings.
