How People Feel

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner

I have learned that people will forget what you said.

People will forget what you did.

But, people will never forget how you made them feel.

* Always, always always acknowledge someone's negative feelings right away, if they have them. This allows the person to feel heard and understood and creates an arena for better understanding. When our negative emotions are not addressed they can fester, grow more dramatic with bad behavior or disrupt the balance of our very cells. Cancer has been linked to deep grief and unresolved pain.

Hi Jason, great post and I agree 100%! When we acknowledge someone's feelings, it does make them feel better :)

Wow, I never knew about the link to cancer. Maybe I should strive to be more thoughtful in the way I relate to others. Thanks for the post.
